Fall brings forth aromas that separate the seasons – think apples, pumpkin, squash, cinnamon and clove spices -- autumn’s gifts of pleasure.
These organic ingredients from fall’s bountiful harvest are concocted in many forms, such as pies, crisps, brulees, candles and potpourri, to name a handful. Well, now you can also get a burst of pumpkin aroma on your face, thanks to Rhonda Allison and Minus 10 Medspa in Marblehead.
Like the pure ingredients of a fall harvest, Rhonda Allison cosmeceutical products begin with the purest of ingredients, without dyes, colors, perfumes or additives.
The process of a facial at Minus 10 is soothing and therapeutic at the same time. Someone, an expert in fact, is taking care of you, doing something to your face that you would never find the time or energy to do personally. But now you’re lying down, allowing the process and taking the time to indulge. As you’re cleansed, toned and exfoliated in a careful and methodical pattern, you can enjoy the aroma of fall with a pumpkin facial. And it really does smell like the real thing. This particular product, the pumpkin cleanser, is a daily treatment cleanser that utilizes L-Lactic Acid to exfoliate and hydrate simultaneously – for those who under cleanse and over hydrate – which is just about everyone. This cleanser also has pumpkin extracts and beta-carotene to serve as an antioxidant and photo protectant. You can purchase your own bottle to take home, and sure enough, you’ll want to wash your face so you can smell that pumpkin aroma as if you’re baking a pie.
Disclaimer: There’s a really good chance that when your facial is done, you’ll crave a piece of pumpkin pie.
Through the month of October, pumpkin facials are being offered at a reduced price ($70) for anyone who books at Minus 10 in Marblehead – the only state-licensed MedSpa in the area. Visit www.MinusTenSpa.com for more information.
