The Only Thing to Stop Me From Eating Too Much Pumpkin Pie: Naturopathica Pumpkin Purifying Enzyme Peel

 

Happy Thanksgiving, lovelies! Listen, we all know Thanksgiving is a time for thanks and family, but let’s be honest — it’s also about the feast!  If you’re anything like me, you’re a whore for desserts so you carefully ration your turkey and stuffing intake to ensure you save room for pumpkin pie. My problem — I end up eating more than the standard portion. There, I said it.  I have a pie problem, especially where pumpkin is concerned.

So in order to minimize my caloric intake, I try and satiate my pumpkin pie craving while gently exfoliating and decongesting my skin with Naturopathica Pumpkin Purifying Enzyme PeelI cleanse my skin before I shower and then apply the enzyme peel mask and leave it on in the shower.  The steam from the shower helps activate the enzymes. This exfoliating mask is gentle yet effective —  I was even able to use it during my pregnancy.

Key Ingredients:

PUMPKIN: This is an exfoliation accelerator, a powerful antioxidant, and a mild retinoic acid substitute.

PUMPKIN ENZYMES: These help break down dead skin cells for a soft, smooth finish.

CINNAMON BARK, OREGANO & ROSEMARY EXTRACT:A potent trio of antiseptic herbs.

So hopefully by using this mask I will resist my powerful urges to shovel pumpkin pie in my face. Now if only Naturopathica made an apple pie-scented mask…

Have a wonderful holiday!

Blemish Monsters: The Bad, the Worse, and the Grotesquely Ugly…

There’s nothing worse than feeling a little something developing on your face.  I’m not talking about the little hormone zits you get before your period or a pesky white head that pops up with some friends after a long session at the gym. I’m talking about a full-on painful, red pimple that starts hurting before it’s even a bump.  I’m talking about the kind of pimple that gets so big and ugly you’re sure that an alien life-form may hatch from it during the night.

Your first instinct is to panic.  You furiously douse the area with every topical acid and acne fighter you can find. You don’t care that your skin will be chapped and peeling. You just want it gone.  Nothing works, so you panic some more and it gets large enough that you figure it’s ripe for the picking.  BAD!! Read the rest of this entry »
