Well, we’re all elbow deep in pumpkin season about now, huh?! For those of us skin loving DIYers, pumpkins are a good thing. I can’t even begin to describe how full of vitamins, minerals and fruity acid goodness one little pumpkin has! Plus, pumpkins have a very small molecular makeup which means they can penetrate the skin at deeper levels for more skin glowing benefits! As you can see, pumpkins are a girl’s best friend! (at least in the fall ;))
First, let me refresh your memory on just how good pumpkins are for the skin…
Pumpkin Benefits for the Skin:
- High in Vitamin C-Promotes collagen
- Brightens Skin
- Fades Scars & Age/Sun Spots
- Improves Circulation
- High Zinc-Great for Acne
- Antioxidant Rich to Fight Off Aging
- Contains AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) which Exfoliate & Encourage New Cell Growth!
I thought today I would share with you my top pumpkin posts from my blog and also I’ve collected a few more recipes that I think you’re gonna love! Including a healthy pumpkin spice recipe!! Oh Yes!
I think we could all benefit from a good scrub about this time in the year and this easy to make pumpkin scrub not only smells amazing, it will leave your skin baby soft!
Pumpkin Pie Lip Balm
This DIY lip balm recipe was one of my first lip balm recipes I posted and it is still one of my favorites! I used tea bags in order to get the pumpkin spice scent and taste and it worked like a charm! Infusing oil with tea bags has turned out to be such a fun DIY you’ll definitely want to try!
Pumpkin Glycolic Honey Mask
This pumpkin mask is a potent exfoliator since it contains glycolic acid. You’ll want to use caution with this one but it’s perfect when you need to slough off all that dead summer skin!
This DIY pumpkin mask is so easy to make but it is for sure one of my favorite DIY masks to use. Pumpkin is full of goodness as I’ve said a million times before! Be sure to try this one this fall! Your skin will be radiant afterwards!
And a few others….

And you might be interested in checking out my Halloween section of my blog. I take Halloween quite seriously!
I love your site. Since I make small batches for myself I don’t need a large inventory.
Suggestion: Offer substitutions in your recipes. I often don’t have all of the ingredients but have something that might work (possibly work)……. Plus, it gets expensive, both in product and shipping costs, to order more items.
Keep up the good work and thanks for listening.
Paula-Thanks for the suggestion-I will offer a few alternatives in the future! Thanks for visiting my site!!
