iDermed_Pumpkin_PeelFall is here. Smells of cinnamon and spice in the air, kids dressing up for Halloween…and an abundance of Pumpkins!

Pumpkin contains enzymes, vitamin A, C and K, iron, zinc and so many antioxidants it’s no wonder it’s considered one of nature’s healthiest foods. Those ingredients are also what puts Pumpkin at the top of our list for skin rejuvenation.

For years, scientists, dermatologists and skin care professionals have searched for a way to make the skin look younger. This age old search for the proverbial “Fountain of Youth” leads us to this naturally occurring exfoliator which provides a gentle, superficial skin peeling.

How do Pumpkin Enzymes Work?

When Pumpkin Enzymes are applied to the skin in the form of home care products and professional peels, the plant enzymes soften and break down the hard sebum and dead skin cells that build up in the hair follicle trapping the dirt and oil. By exfoliating the dead cells on the surface of the skin we encourage cell turnover at a healthy rate, this keeps your complexion feeling and looking smooth and radiant.

Is A Pumpkin Enzyme Peel Safe?

Not only is a Pumpkin Enzyme Peel safe but the antioxidant boost derived from pumpkin neutralizes free radicals {unstable molecules responsible for tissue damage that leads to aging} before they can cause any damage. If left unchallenged free radicals cause the cells to function poorly or die leading to damaged skin structures.  There are little to no side effects with a Pumpkin Enzyme Peel when used as directed.

How Should I use It?

There are two ways to treat the skin with Pumpkin Enzymes: home care products and professional peels. Home care peels containing pumpkin enzymes may be used once a week or  following your skin care specialists  recommended use. Professional peels are recommended bi-weekly or once a month depending on your particular skin condition.

Why Should I Use It?

Corneocyte cohesion (dead skin cells) are associated with many of today’s common skin conditions such as acne, photo damage (environmental aging), and hyper-pigmentation (brown spots). Pumpkin Enzymes are a wonderful resurfacing agent that can lighten hyper-pigmentation, help to clear acne and boost antioxidants for anti-aging resulting in smoothing, firming and improving signs of pre-mature aging.

What Results Should I See?

When Pumpkin Enzymes dissolve layers of dead skin cells, the skin appears smoother, firmer and has a more translucent clarity.

At What Age Is A Pumpkin Enzyme Peel Usually Recommended?

Pumpkin Enzymes are safe to use on young adults skin, especially acne prone skin, and is recommended for maintaining health skin from the teens on.
