    the Benefits of Pumpkin in Skincare

    Now that it is officially Fall, we’ve got pumpkin on our mind. From Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Starbucks to Pumpkin Pie flavored candles and everything in between, pumpkin has exploded over the past few years. But did you know that pumpkin has some great benefits for the skin as well?

    To prepare your skin for the cold harsh weather, add skincare products with Autumn’s star seasonal ingredient – pumpkin to your fall regimen.



    Revamp your Skincare Routine for Fall

    Just like you switch up your wardrobe to work for the changing seasons, it’s important to do the same with your skincare regimen. While summer skincare is all about sun protection, fall brings its own challenges – repairing any summer skin damage and preparing your skin for the cooler temps.

Simple changes in our skincare regime can return it to a state of balance and even combat the damage it endured over the summer months. (more…)

Harmonized Water is designed to recalibrate the damaged tissue and restore it to its optimal state. (more…)
