Why we sometimes put a pumpkin enzyme in your facial.

Updated: Oct 27, 2023

It's not always easy to get radiant, glowy skin that doesn't give away our age. Lucky for us, there's a natural ingredient that has been a bit of a sleeper in the skincare world. (not in Lift Laser and Beauty though - we've been sharing this beautiful exfoliant in our Pumpkin Enzyme Facial with you for years)

Pumpkin: not just for lattes and pies

First, let's talk about The Benefits of Facials

Yes, it's definitely more than someone else doing your skincare routine for you.

  1. Deeper Cleansing: Facials involve a thorough cleansing process that removes dirt, oil, and impurities from your skin. Not just a cleanse but a double cleanse. This isn't just twice with the same cleanser- this is using two cleansers with different properties that benefit your skin specifically, depending on your skin type. If extractions are required, this where it pays to have a professional working on your face.

  2. Exfoliation: If you're not well exfoliated, you simply cannot have bright and radiant skin. . At Lift Laser and Beauty we use a line of acids and enzymes that we can customize to suit your specific needs: aging, sensitive, congested, dry like the desert, acneic, oily - you name it, we have the perfect selections for you.

  3. Hydration: All skin needs hydration, even oily skin and our facials take that into account. However, if you're properly cleansed and well exfoliated you can likely use a much different moisturizer than you think.

  4. Stress Relief: I mean, if you haven't had a facial massage you may not get this. But let me tell you, Julie creates the perfect atmosphere and her massage is enough to make you not even care about the rest of the benefits of a facial. Relaxing away some of the stress in your life, if even for an hour, will ALWAYS look good on your skin.

NOW, let's get to why we came here. Pumpkin: Nature's Exfoliant

Ya, we're going to put pumplin on you face, and here's why:

  1. Natural Enzymes: Pumpkin contains natural enzymes, primarily alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and beta hydroxy acids (BHAs). These enzymes help to dissolve dead skin cells and encourage the growth of new, healthy ones.You know I love acids and enzymes around here!

  2. Rich in Vitamins: Pumpkin is loaded with skin-loving vitamins, including A, C, and E. Vitamin A, in particular, is known for its skin-regenerating properties.

  3. Gentle Exfoliation: Here I go again on acids and enzymes. Scrubbing with a mechanical exfoliant isn't always the way to go. (I'd argue it's the long route with detour and a weird cliff on a sharp turn - but I digress) Pumpkin enzymes offer a more mid-range exfoliation experience. It's a warm and tingly experience.

  4. Anti-Aging Benefits: Pumpkin enzymes are anti-oxidant and as we age we allll need some anti-oxidant action.

  5. Sensory-glory: hahaha, I got stumped here and couldn't come up with a better word. Let's just say that the rich, creamy scents of the pumpkin and all the ingredients we choose to treat your skin with will leave you feeling like all of your senses have had an experience.

What's the moral of the story here?

1. Get facials- don't do this at home. Why? Because we've sourced a line of products that has ingredients to serve every need of your skin at an advance level. And, becuase you can't massage your face like Julie can. lol.

2. Try the pumpkin enzyme for pure, natural, deep exfoliation. This sort of exfoliation is a requirement for achieving radiant skin.
