Every fall I bring the pumpkin into my arsenal of skin potions, along with spice (for detoxing skin and cleaning pores) and a little bit of latte (lactic acid which adds hydration while gently exfoliating). At the bottom of this email are some you can also use at home.
Try these for your PSL treat:
Yam & Pumpkin Enzyme Peel - exfoliate gently while brightening and hydrating.
Pumpkin Latte Hydration Masque - fun way to hydrate, help rejuvenate skin.
Eight Greens Hot Masque - add a little spice to your skin care with Hungarian paprika in this herbal base that helps hormonal conditions like acne and sagging.
Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant - Add a little "milk" to your PSL routine. Lactic acid, a milk derivative, adds hydration while exfoliating skin. Fine powder scrub can be used alone or mixed with any of the masks above for a more intense exfoliation.
