Bump Up the Collagen!!outubro 16, 2017
‘Tis the season of ghouls and goblins, tricks and treats. It’s also the season of: pumpkin lattes, muffins, chips, cookies and crackers. Take a stroll through your local grocery store. You’ll be hard pressed to find a product without pumpkin in it these October days.
So why should things be any different at Oh Sweet? For this Autumnal season, Oh Sweet is offering a pumpkin facial. The facial features a yam and pumpkin masque from our fave organic European line, Eminence. The peel, which smells a lot like pumpkin pie, is rich in beta carotene, vitamin A and vitamin C. What does that mean for you? It’s a masque like no other. We leave it on for ten minutes while it tingles and heats, going to work on your face and leaving it soft, moist and free of dead skin.
As it turns out, pumpkin is the perfect addition to a facial. Pumpkin is natural rich in enzymes, a protein that acts as a catalyst to bring about a chemical reaction. In this case, the reaction we’re after is the one that breaks apart unwanted connective tissue that gets tight as we age and causes wrinkles. (Think of vertical lines on the lower cheek area. No thanks.) The multi-purpose Yam & Pumpkin Enzyme Peel also has alpha hydroxy acids that exfoliate dead skin cells, reducing pigmentation, fine lines and sun damage. You’ll even head home with a little extra product to use again at your convenience. Sign us up, right? The pumpkin facial takes about 45 minutes and runs $75. Book an appointment soon as it’s a seasonal offering and won’t be around much past Turkey Day.
