Pumpkin Fall Services!Pumpkins

are not only for decoration this fall season, they also offer plenty of nutritional benefits-especially for the skin. They contain anti-oxidant vitamins A and C, zinc and alpha-hydroxy acids that help reduce the signs of aging. So if your clients are looking for a good way to usher in Halloween and the feeling of fall, you may want to recommend a pumpkin service. Believe it or not, lots of spas are adopting the "seasonal" services, which rotate year-round. By having seasonal specials or services, it will keep your menu fresh and your clients coming back year after year for more.
