Deco Features: Spa Atlantic - Pumpkin Retreat Experience
There's more to pumpkins than pie and carving obscene images that disturb the neighbors. Although, those are my two favorites, but a close third is the stuff on the inside. It may be ugly but it holds the key to beauty.
MARISSA AIKENS: "Pumpkin is great for every skin type. It is rich in vitamin A & C very healing and soothing to the skin."
Like Halloween it all starts with the perfect gourd.
MARISSA AIKENS: "First you begin carving your pumpkin as you would your Halloween pumpkin."
Then out comes the gunk but the seeds are saved. And she grinds it into a fine body polish.
Next, the pumpkin is boiled it all starts with a warm steamy towel. Then a brown sugar and ground pumpkin seed polish.
MARISSA AIKENS: "This scrub is really great. It helps to exfoliate the skin and get rid of the dead cells."
Like the leaves of fall dead skin's gotta go so relaxing. Now that you're all warmed up like apple cider. You get a pumpkin foot mask too.
Close your eyes pumpkin you'll want to savor this. It's a wrap but your'e not done you get a 50-minute full body massage too. The pumpkin package just a $ through November.
MARISSA AIKENS: "We have some hot spiced apple cider for you."
For a few bucks more add a milk bath.
MARISSA AIKENS: "This milk has properties of vitamin K & A."
With cinnamon sticks and spice your everything nice from your nose to your toes.
MARISSA AIKENS: "What better way to start the fall season, than to shed your dry summer skin and get your glow ready for the Holiday season."
