They’re on our porches, in our window displays and gathered in bunches at road-side stands. And they’re mild fall flavor is spicing up everything from pies to our double latte grandes.
And, of course, they make for a great facial.
Yes, you read right—a great facial.
Pumpkins, it turns out, are really, really good for you. They’re filled with vitamin A, E and C and loaded with powerful enzymes that help cleanse the skin. As a matter of fact, that whole orange glow thing comes from carotenoids, wrinkle-fighting plant pigments that help neutralize free radicals in the skin, keeping them from damaging the cells that fast-forward aging.
Plus, pumpkin has hydrating properties and are a good source of fiber.
But back to the benefits for your skin, something we at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa know only too well at Spa Toccare and Immersion Spa. Our October spa specials feature a healthy dose of this seasonal treat, not because it’s seasonally trendy—you can get that effect just with a couple of jack o’ lanterns—but because pumpkin is a skin-cleansing, wrinkle-fighting dynamo.
Not you personally, necessarily. After all, a long summer of sunbathing, swimming, partying and being outdoors has hopefully left you feeling pretty good—unless you’re doing it wrong.
No, we’re talking about your body, skin and your aching muscles. All that harsh sun, saltwater, exercise and double beef shish kabobs off the barbecue can take their toll. Not to mention driving the kids to their 1,001 summer activities.
No, its your body that needs the break.
All of them are designed to strip away the effects of a summer in the sun and some of the tension that comes with the most active time of the year.
Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa offers the best getaway options in Atlantic City and one of the best ways to take advantage is through our special hotel packages.

Yes, nutritionists and doctors will tell you that not all fruit is created equal. Certain fruits are so chocked full of antioxidants, fiber, vitamins and minerals, and other nutrients that they can help you live longer, look better and even prevent disease.
And they’ve been dubbed the super fruits.
These special fruits boost immune systems and energy and many have a profound effect on the skin and counter the effects of aging.
Long before men decided to just go to the Hair Barn or wherever to get “styled”, an afternoon in a barbershop was an experience. Picture it. You’ve just been browsing at the hardware store or picking up some oil and spark plugs and you spot that barber’s pole.
Inside there are comfortable chairs, straight razor shaves and combs in those jars with the blue liquid nobody can identify, but smells real nice. You sit down, talk some sports with the barber and get an actual man’s haircut and a close shave. When you leave, well, let’s just say you get some looks.
Those were the days.
Did you ever think about Borgata’s full name, the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa?
We could be Borgata Hotel Casino & Cool Restaurants, many run by world-famous celebrity chefs. Or maybe Borgata Hotel Casino & Great Nightlife at our hot nightclubs MIXX and mur.mur plus all the other great Borgata venues such as Gypsy bar.
Then again, it could be Borgata Hotel Casino & Event Center where the best entertainment acts in Atlantic City play.
No, we went with Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
Think about some of the things your Mom really likes—some peace and quiet in the afternoon, dirty socks actually in the laundry hamper and maybe, Heaven forbid, a little “Me” time for herself once a year.
The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa can’t really help out with the socks, but we’ve got the other things Mom loves covered for this Mother’s Day, May 11.
Take for instance one of the most basic Mom wishes—a nice function where everybody (and that probably means you) actually behaves for a couple of hours, keeps their clothes clean and shows some manners.
Like, say a nice afternoon tea.
Unless you’re a TV weather person, you’re probably O-V-E-R this winter. If ignorance is bliss, we stopped counting snow totals three storms ago. Let’s all agree that it’s time for a “Brrr” break… Here’s the good news — Spring will arrive; and the better news — there’s nothing wrong with pretending like it’s already here […]
