By , October 27, 2016

Two weeks ago on The Spa Blog we highlighted the health benefits of pumpkin and why you should never throw out those leftover pumpkin carvings. Now it’s time to put that knowledge to good use and see what all the fuss is about.

The Pumpkin Spice Renewal Spa Treatment at The Dawson Spa

The Dawson Spa is an award-winning boutique spa based on Dawson Street in Dublin city centre and they have really got into the spirit of Halloween, designing a pumpkin and autumnal themed spa treatment for the occasion.

The Pumpkin Spice Renewal Spa Treatment lasts for 1 hour and 30 minutes and costs €99 from Tuesday to Friday and €109 on Saturday and Sunday.

The treatment begins with the spa’s full body signature massage to help you unwind and relax.

Next you will be immersed in a soothing, warming and skin reviving pumpkin and cinnamon body wrap which will boost the skin’s cell production levels and rebalance sebum levels.

The treatment finishes with a deep relaxing hair and scalp massage as you bask in the scents of autumnal spices.

DIY Spa Treatment: Pumpkin Face Mask

If you’re short on time or not based in Dublin and can’t make it to The Dawson Spa or The Spa at The Intercontinental Dublin, you could always whisk up a really simple pumpkin facemask using ingredients you probably have in your house anyway.

Makes: 1 Face Mask

What You’ll Need

  • 2 tablespoons of cooked, puréed pumpkin (boil cubed pumpkin flesh for approximately 15 – 30 minutes)
  • ½ teaspoon of organic honey
  • 1 teaspoon of natural yoghurt
  • ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon

How It’s Done

  1. Combine all the ingredients together until they form an evenly blended paste.
  2. Apply generously to the face and allow to sit for 15-20 minutes.
  3. Gently wash off with warm water and pat the skin dry.

The pumpkin boosts cell production, regulates sebum levels and repairs damaged skin. The honey provides a natural antiseptic which is great for irritated skin or acne-prone skin. The cinnamon plumps out fine lines and acts as an antiseptic, The natural yoghurt soothes the skin, tightens pores and dissolves dead skin cells.
