Spa Girl finds happiness in a Pumpkin Soufflé

Pomegranates, plums and yes pumpkins—it’s that time of year! Delicious to eat and great for your skin, these seasonal goodies help relax and rejuvenate as we slide, perhaps reluctantly, into fall.

Pumpkins are a rich source of nutrients and antioxidants like vitamin C, E, and A, potassium, alpha-carotene, zinc, beta carotene, and lutein. From facials to revitalizing body wraps, pumpkin and other seasonal ingredients are now being incorporated into a variety of decadent treatments at your favourite Spa.

Pumpkin makes an excellent face mask for all skin types as it soothes, moisturizes and promotes that healthy glow.

Pumpkin Soufflé for your Face

Here’s what you’ll need… ½ Apple, 1 small slice of pumpkin, 1 TBSP honey, 1 to 2 TBSP half & half and 1 to 2 TBSP oatmeal.

Wash, peel, core, and chop up the apple and pumpkin and blend adding honey, half and half and oatmeal. Puree until you achive a rich, thick consistency. Apply to your face for 10 to 15 minutes then rinse with warm water and pat dry. Apply your favourite moisturizer.
And check this out Spa Girls…what fun!
Pomegranate martini facial masque

Freshly stirred, our pomegranate martini is a skin-loving cocktail that delivers radiant skin. The ancient Greeks believed that the pomegranate was a powerful fruit, and today's scientists have determined that the pomegranate has powerful and valuable properties when used in beauty treatments.

Skin-brightening pomegranate, rich in ellagic acid (reputed to have age-reversing properties), is combined with anti-oxidant laden strawberries and blackcurrants. Honey, well known for its powerful humectant abilities, along with skin-softening buttermilk, high in lactic acid, are added for yet another outstanding renewing and skin-smoothing facial masque concoction from Melis. You will notice the difference in your skin within a single application. Also contains French pink clay and Kaolin clay, both suitable for sensitive skin. Suitable for all skin types, and fragrance-free. *paraben-free, phthalate-free & cruelty-free beauty product
