SELF LOVE: 3 Homemade Beauty Treatments Using Leftover Pumpkin 🎃

➡️ 1. Body Sugar Scrub
If your skin is in need of exfoliation, pumpkin makes a bang-up base for a sugar scrub 😃. Mix together equal parts pumpkin puree and olive oil and add enough sugar until you have a thick slurry. In the shower gently rub all over with a washcloth or loofah, rinse then dry as usual.

➡️ 2. Generic Face Mask
This recipe comes from dermatologist Dr. Ted Lain via Huffington Post: Mix together one cup of pumpkin 🎃, two tablespoons of brown sugar, one tablespoon of honey 🍯 and a half cup of yogurt. (The sugar and yogurt are to exfoliate, the honey is a humectant.) Spread on to your face and let sit for 10 minutes, rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry 😊

3. Lip Balm/Scrub 💋
A pinch of pumpkin for the pout does wonders. Mix 1/4 teaspoon of pumpkin puree with 1/4 teaspoon coconut oil and 1/2 teaspoon fine sugar. Rub on lips and massage gently to gently exfoliate and moisturize. 😍
