With harvest season in full swing and the aroma of cinnamon apple spice filling the crisp air, we can’t seem to shake thoughts of the season’s most comforting drinks, desserts and dishes. But while pumpkins have long stood the test of time as a culinary icon during this time of year, they also have several nutritional properties that reach far beyond the kitchen.

From October 15 - November 30, 2013, Travaasa Austin is offering a  hydrating and exfoliating antioxidant facial, appropriately named The Fall Harvest Facial. This specialized treatment combines the season’s freshest ingredients—straight from the Travaasa Farm—with organic products from Ilike Skin Care to refresh and revitalize your skin. By removing tired skin cells with the natural peptides and gentle amino acids found in pumpkins, this facial can reveal a fresh autumn glow. For an added anti-aging blast, request the Pumpkin Peel to follow.
