A few years ago I was introduced to the miracle of pumpkin enzymes. I never really thought pumpkins did much good in the universe unless they were adorning a front porch or if “Punkin” was the name of my cat. At the time, my skin was rough, really congested, and needed massive help. On an impulse, I booked a facial with an esthetician that I couldn’t really understand because of a language barrier. All I could really make out was “You need pumpkin.” Okay. After that one session I became a believer in pumpkin.
Since then, I’ve learned the benefits of enzymes in skin care products so I try to stay on top of it by checking out products with pumpkin, pineapple, papaya enzymes… you get what I am saying. I tried Suki Spa’s Renewal Bio-Resurfacing Facial Peel which uses a power-packed punch of cranberry glycolic and pumpkin enzymes and other acids to refine the complexion.
I applied this on clean, dry skin in a thin even layer and left it on for 20 minutes. The directions state 10-20, so if you are hesitant you can adjust your time. Some of these peels tend to really redden the skin but I used my best judgement and decided to try the full 20. After it started to dry down, my face started feeling tight which in my experience is totally normal. I rinsed it off and my skin was very vibrant. My face was very pink as expected but not in an irritated way. To me, it was working it’s magic and had stimulated the cells. I applied moisturizer and went on about my business and the redness toned down about 20 minutes later. No problem! The next day, I noticed more clarity and less bumpiness. I have enlarged pores no matter how clean they are so it’s nice when things can be smoother, it will never be perfect. Suki states that you can also use this as an overnight spot treatment but I haven’t tried that yet. I wouldn’t do this in the morning because it can cause sun sensitivity.
