Pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere!

It’s that time of year- you can’t turn a corner without seeing a pumpkin. From muffins to lattes to front porches, they are the brightly colored mascots of fall. And as it turns out, pumpkins are packed with benefits that are great for the skin, too:

-       Natural fruit acids and alpha hydroxyl acids (AHAs) help speed skin cell turnover, resulting in a smoother, brighter complexion.

-       Vitamins A (beta carotene) & C are potent antioxidants that help stimulate collagen production and reverse the signs of aging.

-       Pumpkin seeds are high in zinc, which has been shown to be helpful for acne.

We are very excited to introduce a special chemical peel for the fall: the Phyto Pumpkin Enzyme Peel. This relaxing and effective treatment leverages the many natural benefits of pumpkin to reverse the signs of sun damage and aging, resulting in brighter, more even skin tone and a smoother texture. Chemical peels and pumpkins: 2 things we love at D&A, together at last! Call now to schedule your appointment, and reap the benefits of this favorite fall staple!
