Primary and Power Pumpkin Resurfacers
The power of the pumpkin should be used year round for a variety of reasons, including how it stimulates the production of collagen, lightens pigmentation, reduces acne breakouts, and provides such anti-aging benefits as decreasing fine lines and wrinkles.
Pumpkin peel treatments are well tolerated by most people and aids with acne, pigmentation, brightening the skin and is fine with sensitive skins. The enzyme of the pumpkin is used to exfoliate and infuse the skin with vitamins. and so Pumpkin peels can deliver immediate smoothness and clarity.
“Pumpkin pulp is a powerful antioxidant (beta carotene), which is a precursor to retinol (vitamin A) so it is brightening to the skin and plumping too. It’s a very active enzyme that actively digests dead skin cells so it’s also very exfoliating. Furthermore, there are minerals present in pumpkin pulp that are fantastic skin conditioners,” says DermaQuest CEO and Lead Chemist Sam Dhatt.
In addition to its anti-aging benefits, pumpkin is also great for acne. The enzymatic action helps to reduce surface impaction, reducing breakout.
This is how it works
Pumpkin pulp gently digests and dislodges non-living skin debris (think dead skin cells, bacteria and congestion) while depositing over 100 phyto-nutrients and antioxidants that are found in the whole pumpkin, including the rind. The pumpkin peel can be an excellent alternative for those not wanting downtime peels and recovery time, while still producing a result that leaves the skin smoother, softer, clear and balanced. The alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) that pumpkin naturally contains, penetrate the layers of the skin and encourage cell turnover. The antioxidants also strengthen the skin’s defenses against free radicals, while the AHAs also stimulate collagen and elastin rejuvenation.
In general the benefits of the pumpkin peel are:
• Increases cell turnover
• Increases epidermal and dermal hydration
• Stimulates collagen and elastin production
• Lightens pigmentation
• Provides anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits
• Decreases fine lines and wrinkles
• Reduces acne breakouts and assists with release of comedones
