After spending over a year at home, most people are dreaming of a life outside the walls of their space -- and you might be one of them.

Maybe you miss the feeling you get after a facial from your favorite esthetician, or maybe your skin needs some extra love after neglecting a few skincare routines (don’t worry, we won’t tell!).

We’re not out of the pandemic yet, but in the meantime, why not enjoy the benefits of a facial from the safety of your home?

Allow me to introduce you to the Pumpkin Enzyme Mask -- a product from DRMTLGY that simultaneously hydrates, cleanses, and exfoliates while also reducing the appearance of pores and lines. 

So light a few candles and cue up your relaxation playlist for the ultimate spa day vibe. Here’s why you’ll want to make this product yours.

Why Pumpkin Deserves a Spot in Your Weekly Skincare Lineup

Whether you’re lathering it onto your face or adding it to your favorite meals, pumpkin is loaded with benefits. When you regularly include it in your skincare routine, you’re able to take full advantage of the vitamins and minerals this superstar ingredient contains. 

And although pumpkins are traditionally available near the end of the year when the fruits ripen, with DRMTLGY’s Pumpkin Enzyme Mask, you can enjoy it all year round. 

So what exactly is in everyone’s favorite winter squash?

Well, alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), for one. These heavy hitters gently exfoliate while increasing the overall water content of your skin, reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. And because they speed up cell turnover, you’ll see smoother, brighter skin over time too.

Antioxidants like vitamin A, C, and E also help to boost skin cell turnover, but that’s not all. These protective compounds block destructive free radicals from causing oxidation damage to your cells and speeding up the natural aging process of your skin. Additionally, vitamin C also helps to fade dark spots and scars.

And don’t forget about zinc, either. Just like vitamin E, this element helps to reduce your skin’s sebum production and reduces the chance of acne breakouts -- perfect for those with oily or acne-prone skin.

Whether you’ve got mature, dry, acne-prone, oily skin, or a combination of these skin types, pumpkin is a versatile weapon to keep in your skincare arsenal for tackling common skin issues.

Pumpkin Enzyme Mask

Enter: DRMTLGY’s Pumpkin Enzyme Mask

If you’re trying to decide if pumpkin skincare is right for you, know that the Pumpkin Enzyme Mask’s benefits don’t end with its star player. 

In fact, DRMTLGY has pumped this product full of ingredients like jojoba beads, kaolin clay, and vitamin E to make it a multi-purpose workhorse to help you make the most of every skincare routine and every dollar. Here’s what else you can look forward to!

Thorough cleansing

We all know that too much oil is a bad thing, but your skin still needs some to function properly and retain moisture. Luckily, that’s where kaolin clay comes in.

Kaolin gently strips away excess oil without removing too much of it, while also dislodging any hard-to-remove dirt. In fact, this ingredient has been used for centuries to soak up the oil in your pores, making it a tried-and-true method for controlling oil production. Additionally, kaolin’s mild healing and anti-inflammatory benefits help to restore skin damaged from acne outbreaks or over-exfoliation. 

Thanks to the absorption properties of kaolin as well as the sebum-controlling properties of jojoba and zinc, you’ll find that this product reduces enlarged pores without irritating your skin.  

Gentle exfoliation 

Smooth jojoba beads and kaolin’s slightly gritty texture gently exfoliate your skin without leaving behind microtears associated with natural exfoliants like crushed walnut shells. Plus, the motion associated with using physical exfoliants increases blood flow to your skin to bring oxygen and nutrients to your cells. 

These ingredients, along with the pumpkin AHAs, work to exfoliate any lingering dead skin cells to reveal beautiful new skin waiting just underneath.

The best part? Despite its effective exfoliation, the Pumpkin Enzyme Mask is safe to use for all skin types -- even sensitive skin. 

Lasting hydration

Although pumpkin is already chock-full of vitamin E, DRMTLGY has added more of this antioxidant to its formulation to ensure your skin stays moisturized and supple all day long. 

Time-released vitamin E microbeads ensure you get a steady supply of vitamin E throughout the day for regular skin hydration and nourishment. This, in turn, keeps skin plump and can help reduce fine lines for a more youthful-looking appearance. 

Luxurious feel

The indulgent self-warming aspect of the Pumpkin Enzyme Mask makes you feel like you’re back at your favorite spa. However, the heat doesn’t just feel good -- it offers a few benefits too. 

You may have noticed that, at your last in-spa treatment, your esthetician would use a steamer or hot towel on your face. This heat increases blood circulation, loosens any oil or dirt buildup in your skin, and opens up your pores. The technique makes it easier for ingredients like kaolin clay to soak up the impurities that might be hard to get at otherwise. 

All in all, you’ll find that the ingredients used in this mask are ones often found in spas all over the country -- ensuring you get a spa-quality treatment from the comfort of your home whenever you want.

This past year has been a challenging one (to put it lightly), and for many of us, it wreaked havoc on our skin too. From face mask-induced breakouts to neglecting your skincare routine out of stress, your skin can definitely use some extra TLC right now. 

But with better days on the horizon and the opportunity to see your loved ones again soon, now’s the best time to help your skin recuperate from any bad habits you might have picked up at home. 

Skin doesn’t recover from neglect overnight. In fact, visible signs of skin recovery can often take around two months to appear. That’s why it’s best to start your recovery process now, so you can make your post-pandemic debut with the skin you’ve always dreamed of. As a supplement to your everyday regimen, the Pumpkin Enzyme Mask helps rejuvenate your skin and bring out its inner glow. 

And if you add your phone number to DRMTLGY’s SMS subscriber list, you’ll get 20% off your next order. So what are you waiting for? The secret to more youthful-looking skin is just a product away!
