Summertime is for pool parties, backyard BBQs, and endless nights spending time with family and friends. But exposure to harsh sunlight can lead to skin damage, such as sun spots and skin discoloration. Whether you forgot to apply sunscreen or have existing skin concerns that need attention, the pumpkin peel can address a variety of skin conditions.
Types Of Summer Skin Damage
Skin discoloration is characterized by uneven patches that create a mottled appearance. Though light skinned people are more likely to develop uneven skin tone, dark-skinned people are also at risk of developing dark brown patches as a result of sun damage. Excessive sun exposure may also lead to premature wrinkles and broken blood vessels on the face.
Also called sunspots, age spots are flat brown spots that may appear as a result of chronic exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light. The face, hands, neck, décolletage, arms, and legs are at high risk of developing sunspots caused by frequent sun exposure.
The Power Of Pumpkin
Pumpkin is the perfect ingredient for a peel addressing summer skin damage. Packed with vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants, pumpkin supports skin health and appearance. The orange fruit is rich in potassium, beta-carotene, vitamin A, vitamin C, zinc, alpha-hydroxy acids, magnesium, Omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin E, helping to fight off free radicals, exfoliate the skin, and improve skin tone.
How A Pumpkin Peel Works
A pumpkin peel is a great way to usher in the fall season and take care of your skin in time for Halloween and Thanksgiving. Enjoy the power of pumpkin and reverse the damage caused by sun exposure during the summer months. The antioxidants in a pumpkin peel protect your skin from oxidative damage and oxidative stress, and help prevent premature aging.
A pumpkin peel also contains alpha hydroxy acids and beta hydroxy acids that work to remove dead skin cells and bring fresh, young cells to the surface
What To Expect During A Pumpkin Peel
The esthetician will begin the procedure by analyzing your skin and identifying concerns that need to be addressed. Next, your skin will be cleansed of any oil, makeup, and dirt to ensure the peel can penetrate deep into the pores. The esthetician will then apply the pumpkin peel and leave it on for a few minutes, allowing the ingredients to work their magic. Your skin may feel hot in some places and you may experience a skin-tightening sensation. The esthetician will use a warm, wet towel to remove the peel and thoroughly cleanse the skin.
