Pumpkin Spice for your Face!

Do you dream of indulging in the latest pumpkin spice goodie, and not having to worry about calories? We have a solution for you – pumpkin spice FACIALS!

After a long summer relaxing by the pool, your skin is surely in need of some TLC.  Check out our home-facial recommendations for a fix that will have you merry and bright long before the Christmas season sets in!

Pumpkin Spice Facial

There is nothing basic when it comes to this PSF, so whatever your pumpkin politics, cast them aside and do your face a favor. My new Wednesday night ritual includes getting into my yoga pants, watching American Horror Story, and indulging in Peter Thomas Roth’s Pumpkin Enzyme Mask, which smells straight up like Thanksgiving pie and is totally guilt-free.

Start with a hot shower and prepare to be relaxed. Apply the mask to your clean face with damp fingertips, and rub in the mask using gentle circles – feel the burn as the masks little crystals of aluminum oxide work their magic!  Give it about ten minutes – enough time to open a bottle of Pinot, vacuum the living room, and order yourself something pretty online. Don’t freak out when you look in the mirror and resemble Lindsay Lohan with a bad spray tan – rinse that dark brown/orangey goop off with lukewarm water and enjoy your freshly exfoliated mug.


Don’t Be So Sensitive

I get it – sometimes those enzymes that create a post-facial tingle are just a little too much. Fruit enzymes, often found in our favorite face masks, accelerate the exfoliation process, removing dead skin cells (and the last of your summer tan) and leaving you with the smooth complexion of a J Crew model. If you have super-sensitive skin, try  ExfoliKate Gentle Exfoliating Treatment with pumpkin, pineapple, and papaya (smells more like graham crackers than pie, but still yummy!)
