Pumpkin Enzyme Mask
Pumpkin is not just for Halloween or yummy pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving! This powerful, triple-action, manual, chemical, and enzymatic exfoliating treatment addresses a dull, aging, and congested complexion in three ways: it exfoliates with pumpkin enzyme, reveals with alpha hydroxy acid, and polishes with Moroccan clay. It also helps even the appearance of skin tone, smooth the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and clarify to reveal skin that looks smoother, younger, radiant, and revitalized.
Moroccan Clay - One of the most effective clays available for acne sufferers is Moroccan Red Clay because it’s hands down the best clay to use for ridding the complexion of blackheads, toning the skin, and re-balancing dry, flaky skin with regular use. Moroccan Red Clay has been used for the last 1400 as a skin conditioner. Luxuriantly smooth to the touch, its highly absorbent and exfoliating qualities make this clay a must have in your skin care routine! Red clay comes from ancient deposits in the fertile Atlas Mountains of Morocco, mined from deposits made by volcanic activity and geothermic changes in the soil. The soap like form and molecular structure of Moroccan clay makes it very efficient at deeply cleansing out clogged pores. It helps suck out dirt, grime and pollution from deep within the pores, thereby purifying them. Because it has natural astringent properties, Moroccan clay tightens skin and shrinks large pores. Clays are known for their detoxifying effects on the body because of their high levels of ion exchange. Moroccan clay is no exception! It draws out not only dirt and sebum but also toxins and wastes clogging the body.
Pumpkin Oil - Pumpkin contains fruit enzymes & alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), which brighten the skin and contributes to skin renewal. Vitamins C, E & K in pumpkin seed oil softens the skin and boosts collagen production. Vitamin A in pumpkin seed oil contains mild retinoids. Retinoid is an excellent treatment for acne as well as premature wrinkles. Pumpkin contains powerful antioxidants like beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin. Higher than any other fruit. Additionally, pumpkin contains niacin, riboflavin, salicylic acid, lactic and ascorbic acid, all crucial ingredients in dealing with acne prone skin. Pumpkin also contains zinc, which can help regulate oily skin and heal damage from acne. The smaller molecular structure of pumpkin assists with skin penetration to improve a dull complexion and hyperpigmentation issues.
Carrot Seed Oil - Carrot seed oil can be used on all skin types. It helps to balance the moisture content of the skin, healing dry, cracked skin and helping reduce wrinkles. Like carrot seed essential oil, carrot oil contains an abundance of carotenoids. These super antioxidants will protect your skin from UV and elemental damage. This oil has a rejuvenating effect on the skin by stimulating cell renewal. It improves skin tone and helps eliminate water and toxin build-up.

I love this face mask. I originally purchased it because there was another brand that I liked that discontinued their pumpkin mask, so I wanted to give this one a try. This pumpkin enzyme mask is AMAZING! I use this twice a week in conjunction with the Super fruit serum and my face couldn't be happier. There is a slight tingle when you first put it on, but as it dries the tingle goes away. A little goes a long way, so the jar will last you quite some time, it's such a good bang for the buck. Since the pandemic I haven't been able to go to the dermatologist and get a chemical peel but this mask has me ready to kiss chemical peels goodbye for good. I highly recommend it.
