Pumpkin isn’t just for pie during Thanksgiving or for decorating your front porch during Halloween. What you probably don’t know is pumpkin contains essential vitamins and nutrients that are necessary for you if you want to get healthy and radiant skin.

 

Pumpkin is suitable for use on all skin types. This is especially so if your skin is damaged by the sun’s ultra violet rays. Beta-carotene (a carotenoid better known as vitamin A), found in the bright orange pulp of pumpkins is known to protect skin cells from oxidative damage caused by free radicals and is also good for the scalp.

 

Free radicals are the culprits responsible for causing poor skin tone and elasticity and wrinkles over time because they break down skin-plumping collagen and elastin, which can weaken over time.

 

The long-term results of this breakdown are wrinkles. Pumpkin is also a good source of vitamin C; another powerful antioxidant that combats free radicals.

 

Pumpkin is a good source of the minerals copper and zinc. Copper plays a role in collagen, elastin and melanin production. Melanin is a pigment that determines the colour of your skin and hair, which explains why pigmentation problems may be attributed to dietary copper deficiency.

 

Pumpkin may help fade away the brown spots left behind by acne. Zinc is thought to regulate excessive oil production in your hair follicles, which explains why increasing your intake of zinc may clear up acne. Zinc also assists in the repair of inflamed tissues, such as pimples, rashes and sunburns.

 

Like banana and avocado, pumpkin is another rich source of potassium and this nutrient is especially useful in promoting the re-growth of hair.   This makes pumpkin one of the vegetables for hair loss.

Pumpkin is especially good for moisturizing dry or damaged hair.

 

Due to the many benefits to the skin from pumpkin, you can easily find a wide range of skin care and foot care products which have pumpkin as one of their ingredients. If you prefer natural skin care products, you can learn how to make your own homemade skin care treatments using fresh or canned pumpkin.

 

Following are some pumpkin scrub recipes you can use at home for a healthier and younger looking skin.

 

Honey Milk Pumpkin Scrub for Dry Skin

 

For this recipe, you will need 2 teaspoons of pureed pumpkin, half teaspoon each of raw organic honey (or manuka honey) and milk. If you want, instead of using milk, you can either use half teaspoon of brown sugar which exfoliates and moisturizes the skin or you can add in 1 teaspoon of plain yogurt.

 

You mix all the ingredients together, and then you apply the mixture all over your face avoiding the eye area. Leave it for 10 to 15 minutes before rinsing it off with lukewarm water.

 

Apple Cider Vinegar Pumpkin Scrub for Oily Skin

 

For this recipe, you will need 1 tablespoon of pureed pumpkin and 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar. You mix the ingredients together and then you apply the mixture to your damp face. Leave it on until dry or up to 30 minutes. Rinse off with lukewarm water.

 

Sugar Pumpkin Scrub for Glowing Skin

 

For this recipe, you will need 5 to 6 tablespoons of pumpkin pulp, 3 tablespoons of sugar and half teaspoon of pumpkin seed oil. You mix all of them together to form a thick paste. Then you apply this on your face and gently scrub after 2 to 3 minutes.

 

You can also prepare a pumpkin body scrub by combining 1 cup of pumpkin pulp and one-third cup of sugar. After you bath, you dry your body and then you apply this all over your body. You start from the lower leg and rub it up and down gently and slowly. The abrasiveness of the sugar will start to remove the dead skin cells.

 

You can also prepare a pumpkin foot scrub if you want to. For this, you will need 1 tablespoon each of pureed pumpkin, brown sugar, coffee powder, lemon juice and lastly the carrier oil which can be almond oil, jojoba oil or extra virgin olive oil.

 

You mix all of these ingredients together in a bowl. After you have mixed them well, you can now apply the pumpkin scrub to your feet and scrubbing gently. Then you rinse off with lukewarm water after about 10 minutes.

Click HERE to Get Access to the Secrets of a Glowing Skin

 

 

A body scrub is a body treatment that is like a facial for the whole body. It helps to slough off the dead skin cells from the surface of our bodies. It exfoliates and hydrates your skin, making it smoother, softer and healthier looking skin.

 

All the body scrubs that you can buy contain 3 basic ingredients.

 

An exfoliant which is an abrasive material like salt, sugar, coffee grounds, rice bran, jojoba beads, apricot kernels, ground nuts, etc. that rubs away the dead skin cells on the surface.

 

Carrier oils to hold the mixture together and to help penetrate the skin to be more effective. The carrier oil can be almond oil, grape seed oil, jojoba oit, macadamia oil, kukui nut oil or hazelnut oil or extra virgin coconut oil.

 

Essential oils to scent your body scrub for aromatherapy such as lavender, orange, juniper or grapefruit oils or spearmint or rosemary.

 

You can also easily create a homemade body scrub can be easily customized with your own choice of ingredients. One of the most popular body scrubs available in the market today are those made of lavender.

 

This is because these lavender-based products not only can exfoliate your skin and but also make it soft and healthy; they also uplift the mood and can even help people combat insomnia.

 

The good thing about lavender essential oil is it can be used directly on your skin if you want without the need to dilute it with carrier oil, unlike other essential oils. Lavender essential oil is also suitable for all types of skin.

 

Following are 6 simple homemade lavender body scrub recipes you can use at the comfort of your home.

 

Homemade Lavender Body Scrub Recipe 1# – For All Skin Types

 

This body scrub will use salt as the exfoliant which is great for relaxing your muscles. I prefer to use sea salt, because it is less processed than table salt, contains a wider variety of trace elements and minerals, and is said to be kinder on the skin.

 

The next is to add carrier oil to the exfoliant to form a paste. One of the great choices is the apricot kernel oil because this oil is gentle which makes it suitable for all skin types. Because of its skin softening, moisturizing properties and is therefore highly recommended for skin that is dry, irritated or has prematurely aged.

 

You can also use sweet almond oil which is considered to be good all-purpose carrier oil and is moderately priced. But it a little heavier than other oils and may stain the sheets if you use it in massage.

 

Now you mix 1/3 cup of apricot kernel oil or sweet almond oil with one cup of sea salt to form a paste. The last thing to do is to add 5-6 drop of lavender essential oil to the paste and you can now use it in the bathroom.

 

Homemade Lavender Body Scrub Recipe 2# – For All Sensitive Skin

 

Some people’s skin may not react well with salt.  In this case, you can use sugar which feels slightly gentler on your skin than salt. You can use either brown or white sugar. I prefer brown, because it smells yummy, especially if you mix it with a little lavender essential oil.

 

You will mix 1/3 cup of apricot kernel oil or sweet almond oil with one cup of brown sugar to form a paste and then add 5-6 drops of essential oil.

 

Homemade Lavender Body Scrub Recipe 3# – For Moisturizing Your Skin

 

This recipe uses oatmeal instead of sugar or salt, which is the gentlest of the exfoliants. It is an emollient, meaning that it softens and hydrates your skin. People have used it for decades as an effective home remedy for dry, itchy skin. Unlike salt and sugar, you can use it with a bit of water instead of adding in carrier oil.

 

So you can add in just enough of water to one cup of oatmeal to form a paste. You can now add 5-6 drops of lavender essential oil to the paste. This is probably the simplest and most affordable homemade body scrub.

 

If you have a little more time and money to create your homemade lavender body scrub, you can try the following recipes.

 

Homemade Lavender Body Scrub Recipe 4# – For Normal Skin

 

You mix 1/3 cup of sweet almond oil or apricot kernel oil with 1 cup of brown sugar to form a paste. You will next add to the paste 10 drops of lavender essential oil, 6 drops of geranium essential oil and 4 drops of ylang-ylang essential oil.

 

Homemade Lavender Body Scrub Recipe 5# – For Oily Skin

 

You mix 1/3 cup of sweet almond oil or apricot kernel oil with 1 cup of brown sugar to form a paste. You will next add to the paste the following essential oils: 8 drops of sandalwood oil, 6 drops of lemon oil and 6 drops of lavender oil.

 

Homemade Lavender Body Scrub Recipe 6# – For Sunburn Skin

 

This recipe will add in lavender hydrosol. Lavender hydrosol is a by-product of the steam distillation process used to extract lavender essential oil from the lavender flowers.

 

It shares the same wonderful healing and anti-bacterial properties as lavender essential oil, but is produced in greater volume and therefore less expensive than the oils. It is suitable for all skin types. It is helpful for delicate and aging skin. It provides a healing effect for cuts, wounds, sunburn, bites and heat rash.

 

To a cup of brown sugar you mix it with 1/3 cup of sweet almond oil or apricot kernel oil and 6 teaspoons of lavender hydrosol to form a paste. You then add 5-6 drops of lavender oil.

 

To apply the mixture from any of the above recipes, use your fingers to rub in a circular motion into damp skin. Massage for 30 seconds and then rinse with warm water. Pat (don’t rub) dry with a clean towel and follow immediately with an oil-free moisturizer or lotion.
