Pumpkin-scented and spiced items may signal fall’s entrance, but pumpkin is more than a latte flavor or porch decoration. It’s also great for your skin. To satisfy fall fanatics, these local spas have jumped on the pumpkin bandwagon, adding seasonally themed items to their list of services.
The Fort Worth-based salon has two services with fall-inspired infusions.
Pumpkin Body Scrub: Packed with enzymes and vitamin A to brighten skin and boost collagen, this scrub will gently polish, soften and nourish skin.
When: Oct. 1 through Nov. 1
Pumpkin Spice Pedicure: This festive fall treat for feet starts with a warm soak to soften skin and relieve stress. Feet and legs are exfoliated with a natural pumpkin scrub and then hydrated with a rich cinnamon-clove masque. Finally, feet and calves are massaged with almond lotion, and toes are topped off with a choice of nail polish or buffing.
When: Oct.1 through Nov. 1
Yam and Pumpkin Enzyme Facial: This yam and pumpkin enzyme peel combines glycolic and lactic acids to remove dead skin cells and smooth skin texture for a visibly improved complexion. The combination of acids plump skin to minimize the appearance of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles. The facial also includes extractions as well as a neck, shoulder, arm, and scalp massage.
Price: $69 (regularly $109)
Honey Pumpkin Wrap and Rub: This 50-minute session starts off with a salt scrub deliciously scented with notes of honey, cinnamon, and nutmeg and custom blended with a Splendid Dirt Organic Pumpkin Nutrient Mud Mask to provide a thorough, even exfoliation. Next comes a gentle massage with Marshmallow Melt, which is a Shea butter with sandalwood and Tonka bean extracts. This gives skin a glistening appearance that takes away the look of dryness and wrinkles.
When: Oct. 1 through Dec. 31
Honey Pumpkin Manicure and Pedicure: This session starts with a hydrating clementine sparkling soak. A mud mask full of fresh enzymes, organic pumpkin puree, and nutrient clay that instantly boosts radiance is applied after a spicy whipped honey salt exfoliation. Finish this treatment with a Marshmallow Melt Shea butter massage.
When: Oct. 1 through Dec. 31
Cost: $50-85 (25-50 minutes)
Every month, the spa creates a retreat service that’s capped with a specialty cocktail. For October, the spa will offer “Smashing Pumpkin,” an 80-minute service that includes an enzyme masque with organic pumpkin, clove, and cinnamon. The masque is activated with Kombucha and briskly massaged into the body, creating a warming exfoliating blend to slough away dull, damaged layers. A warm Vichy shower cleanses away impurities. The session is topped off with a Kombucha Smash cocktail.
When: Throughout October
The pumpkin spice pedicure and manicure starts with an organic Shea butter and Malawi sugar scrub with aloe vera juice. It ends with a rich and creamy combination of two organic Shea butters infused with pumpkin seed oil, ginger, and spices to soften skin.
When: Available Sept. 18
Harvest Glow Massage: The sweet scent of clementine lingers as a special bourbon body scrub is applied to revitalize skin.
Harvest Glow Facial: Experience the health benefits of fall’s favorite icon–the pumpkin. Estheticians cleanse, exfoliate, and apply a pumpkin mask, helping to reduce wrinkles and leave skin glowing.
Harvest Glow Pedicure: The session begins with a cider foot soak, followed by a bourbon scrub, clementine oil, and honey pumpkin mask before toes are polished and painted.
When: Through Nov. 11
