It turns out pumpkin contains a treasure trove of goodness for your skin. The pulp and seeds contain vitamins and skin-loving nutrients that will make you march into the fall with a new mission this year.
We've gathered a few recipes you can do at home for a spa treatment. Fun.
- Pumpkin is rich in Vitamin A & Potassium, making it a great tonic for the hair and scalp. DIY TIME: Mix up a cup of organic pumpkin puree, 2 teaspoons of coconut oil (fractionated), 2 teaspoons of honey and 2 teaspoons of plain yogurt for a conditioning treatment your hair will soak up and love.
- And let's face it, if we can eat it, it is usually in our products (and I love food). Here's a quick FACIAL PUDDING you can both eat and use as a moisturizing spa treatment.
- And this, not really a spa treatment, but a treatment from the inside out, I suppose. All blood-sugar-lowering benefits aside, these apple and pumpkin breakfast meals look delicious!
