Once the heat of summer dissipates, the bounty of fall begins to grow. Pomegranates, plums, and pumpkins flourish, emanating the rich seasonal colors of fall. Not only are these seasonal fruits and vegetables delicious to eat and fun to grow, they can also be an effective way to nourish your skin in spa treatments, allowing you to fall into the new season relaxed and rejuvenated.
In addition to plums, cranberry, and pomegranate, a tried and true popular seasonal spa ingredient is pumpkin. Pumpkin is a rich source of nutrients and antioxidants like vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin A, potassium, alpha-carotene, zinc, beta carotene, and lutein. When applied topically, it can help your skin achieve a healthy glow throughout the season. From facial treatments to invigorating body treatments and wraps, pumpkin and other seasonal ingredients are being featured in a variety of indulgent treatments at spas around the country!
