for Beautiful Skin by Myra Michelle Eby, founder of MyChelle – All
Natural Skin Care
Did you know that
pumpkin is not just for pies? The following article describes the
benefits of pumpkin for healthy skin care.
We all strive to
obtain and maintain a fresh and healthy skin appearance. To keep your
skin looking and feeling young, the endless cycle of skin cell
sloughing and renewing needs to be actively supported. New skin cells
require about twenty-eight days to form and gradually work their way
to the surface as old cells die off. This renewal process slows with
age, and is further retarded by stress, lack of sleep and overexposure
to the sun, among other influences. Fruit enzymes and Alpha-hydroxy
acids (AHA’s) help to increase the skin cells' natural turnover rate,
while removing dead, dehydrated and scaly cells on the surface, to
reveal the smooth appearance of the new cells. AHA’s act to dissolve
the intracellular cement, or "glue” that binds the dead skin cells.
Fruit enzymes, on the other hand, digest the dead skin cells.
Pumpkin - not just
Concentrated pumpkin and fruit pulps, in the form of peels, are a
great source of fruit enzymes and AHA’s. Properly prepared
concentrated pumpkin extract contains a wide spectrum of vitamin A
derivatives with an outstanding effect on the skin's retinoic acid
receptors, which are responsible for cellular turnover. Look for super
concentrated pumpkin, cherry, apple, cranberry, and blueberry pulp
peels for the best natural results.
MyChelle Dermaceuticals has enhanced its Incredible Pumpkin Peel
by employing a proprietary freeze-drying process. This unique process
yields a whole new botanical peel. The pumpkin extracts are fermented
to concentrate the nutrients, making them bio-available to the skin.
The fermentation process enables the skin to absorb the nutrients with
much greater ease. Our Incredible Pumpkin Peel is a purely
natural alternative to harsh, expensive chemical peels. Who can use
the Incredible Pumpkin Peel? People with acne and severely
weathered skin respond with the most visible change, since there is so
much to improve upon. Normal skin types benefit by the promotion of
healthy skin cell turnover, resulting in age defying rejuvenation.
Pumpkin Seed Oil
Pumpkins are packed full of life giving nutrients. Pumpkin seed oil
yields essential fatty acids that regulate proper skin sebum (oil)
production. This is not only important for normalizing oily/acne skin,
but also balances dry skin. Pumpkin seeds are additionally a great
source of minerals, especially zinc, which is a great antioxidant and
skin healer. Pumpkin Renew Cream is a fantastic nourishing
cream for young, acne or normal skin types. Deep Repair Cream
is designed more for mature skin. It contains powerful cellular
renewal ingredients along with the pumpkin seed oil.
Our fantastic response to MyChelle's Incredible Pumpkin Peel
resulted in the development of our Fruit Fiesta Peel. It
contains five servings of fruits and vegetables (cherry, cranberry,
pumpkin, apple and blueberry) to nourish, rejuvenate and exfoliate all
skin types, especially mature skin. (Sensitive skins should always be
patch tested.) Hyaluronic acid, potent antioxidants, fruit acids and
enzymes tighten pores and leave your skin feeling fresh and
beautiful skin starts from within. Treat yourself to the most natural
and nutritious foods and unstressed environment. Externally, let your
skin experience truly natural products available in the skin care line
of MyChelle Dermaceuticals.
Did you know
that products containing as little as 10% natural ingredients may be
promoted as "natural' products? This deception is not practiced by
MyChelle Dermaceuticals. Our products are 100% natural, devoid even of
synthetic preservative and stabilizers, thereby minimizing potential
side effects commonly associated with products of lesser purity.
At MyChelle we
utilize therapeutic botanical ingredients to enhance the skin's immune
system, nourish, hydrate and support tissue respiration without the
use of chemical preservatives or stabilizers. Fruit pulps containing
natural fruit acids and enzymes, as well as concentrated nutrients,
exfoliate, hydrate and feed the skin.
