Jump on the pumpkin bandwagon for beautiful skin

I’ll admit that, when it comes to pumpkin season, I am completely obsessed and totally cliche.

I love an occasional pumpkin spice latte, pumpkin pie, pumpkin smoothies, pumpkin scented candles, and just returned from a Trader Joe’s shopping trip in which nearly everything in my cart was orange.

There are actually so many health benefits of eating pumpkin, and an added bonus is that there are some beauty benefits as well!

Pumpkin is packed with skin brightening, softening, and nourishing vitamin A, lots o antioxidants, and also helps to get rid of dry skin, so it is an awesome ingredient to find in your beauty products.

Homemade Pumpkin Foot & Body Scrub
1 can pureed pumpkin
1 cup plain yogurt
½ cup raw sugar
2 tablespoons raw pure honey
1/4 teaspoon olive oil

Mix pureed pumpkin in a bowl. Stir in a yogurt, honey, sugar and olive oil. Gently massage the scrub into damp skin with your hands using a circular motion. Rinse with warm water and a washcloth and follow up with your favorite moisturizer. 


Basically, the point of this post is that you can’t truly call yourself a pumpkin fan unless you’re eating pumpkin and slathering your face and body in it as well. 😉

Happy Pumpkin Season!
