Fall is finally in full swing! The warm temperatures have departed and the sweet smell of falling leaves is in the air. Many salons and spas are embracing this season by featuring delicious Pumpkin Spice Treatments for the body, hands and feet. As an Aesthetician and Nail Tech, I like to offer these services to my clients. But the question is: Are these treatments really beneficial to your skin, or are they just a seasonal up sell?
The answer is that there really is power in pumpkin! Pumpkin is an antioxidant. Antioxidants are used in products to prevent the skin from inflammation, and it can slow down the aging process. Pumpkin contains Vitamin A, which heals the skin. It is also necessary to maintain a healthy glow. Pumpkin has Vitamin C, which counters the effects of damaging sun exposure.
This November, make an appointment to receive one of these delicious treats. My recommendation for those who don't treat themselves that often is to get a Pumpkin Spice Manicure. It smells like pumpkin pie, will leave your nails looking beautiful, and most importantly, will help slow down the aging process on our often neglected hands! Your hands will feel healthy, radiant, and glowing long past Thanksgiving.
