It’s time to talk pumpkin! From pies and muffins to lattes and even beauty products. Fall is here, and pumpkin spice has started appearing everywhere. Pumpkin is tasty and nutritious, but did you know it is a superior product when used for your skin as well? Pumpkin is full of essential vitamins and nutrients that prevent signs of aging, keep your skin hydrated, and can even repair sun damage. This Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub recipe is the perfect way to help you score all the benefits of this amazing fruit.
Have you ever used or even made a sugar scrub before? If not, today you’re in luck. Making your own sugar scrub is a great way to save money. Plus YOU control the ingredients. Homemade Sugar Scrubs make terrific gifts too. If you’re into essential oils you can add a couple of drops of Nutmeg, Cinnamon Bark and Clove for even more healthy benefits. They’re especially gift-able in a mason jar with a festive ribbon tied around the lid! If you’re running short on time for a DIY gift or are just looking for ideas for holiday gifts, check out our Holiday Gift Guide. It’s got something for everyone on your list!
Not only does this homemade sugar scrub smell heavenly, it’s the perfect way to help keep your hands, elbows, and feet soft and moisturized during the cold weather season. Use this anywhere on your body for super smooth moisturized skin. Be sure to avoid your eyes of course! I like using it before and after shaving my legs since it makes them feel amazing. Be careful using this in the shower, however, as it can make the floor slippery. So lose the loofah, and whip up this incredible Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub guaranteed to leave you feeling pampered!
