What Pumpkin Enzymes Can Do For You
Fruit and vegetable enzymes are proteins with the ability to target and break down dead skin cells. When used in skin care products, the enzymes speed up chemical reactions on the skin's surface, increasing cell turnover to reveal healthy, glowing skin. The enzymes take the place of manual exfoliation with an added bonus: they're antioxidants! Pumpkin enzymes naturally contain vitamin A, making them the most effective enzyme for refining the skin's surface. This miracle enzyme helps to treat fine lines and wrinkles as well as to combat oily acne breakouts.

In honor of Acne Awareness Month, let’s talk about DermaFrac™, one of the latest technologies in acne treatment.
Acne is a disease that involves the oil glands of the skin. While it is not dangerous, it can leave physical and emotional scars on a person. The skin has pores (tiny openings) that connect to oil glands located under the skin’s surface. The glands are connected to the pores via follicles – small canals. Sebum, an oily liquid, is produced by these glands. The sebum carries dead skin cells through the follicles to the surface of the skin. A small hair grows through the follicle out of the pore opening. Pimples grow when these follicles get blocked with dead skin cells and excessive sebum. Acne develops on the face, back, chest, shoulders and neck when follicles get clogged and infected with bacteria.
