Welcome to Fall! Every new season is an opportunity to take advantage of the freshest produce available. Your beauty routine can also benefit from the freshest ingredients this season. Fall is an all-time favorite for the wonderful scents and flavors that seem to be around for only a short time. Here’s a fall body scrub recipe for you to have fun with at home and keep your skin glowing and smooth this season.
Pumpkin is packed with alpha hydroxy acids that help with cell turnover and rapid exfoliation. This scrub is perfect to brighten skin and get rid of those rough areas on our body.
Body Scrub Ingredients:
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon jojoba, almond or olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder (optional)
Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. This scrub does not keep well; therefore, it should be used at the time of mixing. This scrub has best results when applied to dry skin. The recommended application is 10-20 minutes warm water bath soak, towel dry, use scrub, and then shower to rinse off.
