what it does
pumpkin is a member of the squash family, rich in many antioxidants like beta-carotene, zinc and natural alpha-hydroxy acids which can help even skin tone and reduce the signs of aging. Plus, pumpkin contains vitamins A & C- both great for maintaining a healthy complexion!

honey this sweet treat helps attract dirt, oil and clean skin with breakouts. Bees release a glucose enzyme when creating honey that is a natural antiseptic and has antibacterial properties. When applied topically, it draws body fluids and nutrients to the area assisting in cell growth and scar prevention.
cream & yogurt contain a naturally occurring alpha-hydroxy acid from lactic acid that exfoliates and renews the cellular surface of the skin
vanilla is known in aromatherapy to have comforting and relaxing effects and has a history of use in sensual/aphrodisiac blends.

This is a fabulous natural anti-aging seasonal spa treatment you can whip up right in your own kitchen. Gather the ladies and relax with a facial after Turkey Day!
