Don’t Waste The Pumpkins – At-Home Pumpkin Skin Savers

 Fall is pumpkin season! Whether you’re using fresh pumpkins as decorations, carving jack-o-lanterns, or roasting pumpkin seeds, here are two ways to use every part of the pumpkin to benefit your skin!

1) Face mask

1 pumpkin
½ cup plain Greek yogurt
2 tbsp honey
1 tsp cinnamon

Once you’ve removed the seeds and pulp, wash the pumpkin and cut into medium-sized cubes. Place the cubes in a medium saucepan, cover with water and bring to a boil. When the cubes are tender, drain and cool. Combine with the, yogurt, honey and cinnamon in a blender and puree. Lather the mixture onto your face, leave 10 to 15 minutes and remove with a warm washcloth. Your skin will positively glow!

2) Exfoliator

2 cups fresh pumpkin seeds (leave the pulp in!)
¼ cup coconut oil


Blend oil and seeds in a high-speed blender, then apply to your face and gently massage into your skin. Remove with a warm washcloth.
