What You Need Now: A Pumpkin Enzyme Facial at Eve

23 Sep

I had the most amazing Pumpkin Enzyme facial ($14o for 60 minutes) yesterday at Eve Salon in the West Village. It’s their new facial for fall and man it sure does work wonders. Although Eileen my amazing facial esthetician says that I’m too young to need a facial, she still managed to make my skin look a few years younger! It’s a perfect way to reverse sun damage and hyperpigmentation, smooth enlarged or clogged pores, as well as get rid of flaky skin cells. Relaxation is also a key component for great looking skin so what better way to relax than spending 60 minutes in Eve?!

The first step was the Pumpkin Enzyme Mask to brighten and even out skin tone, while also improving the penetration and exofoliating effects of products used throughout the facial. A Microderm Creme was applied next, which gently refines the skin’s surface and helps minimize the size of large pores – also great to get rid of blackheads. The last step is adding AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) exfoliation to the mix for an extreme exfoliation that reveals new and refreshed skin! Eileen also told me to lay off the coffee and soda, and to always put SPF on before going out each morning (something everyone should do).

This facial really helped with my fall allergies as well – I came in all stuffy and walked away with clear sinuses! If you’re around the NYC area you should stop into Eve. If you’re not in the mood for a facial, their mani/pedi’s are the best I’ve ever experienced!

You can also opt for the Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Peel for a do-it-yourself solution/to use in between facial appointments. I tend to go only 2-3 times a year for a facial, and use a product like this to maintain my healthy looking skin.
