If you could find an anti-aging cream that would smooth your skin and make it glow, would you use it?  If it reduced roughness, dryness, and helped to remove unwanted spots and pimples, wouldn’t it be worth its weight in gold?

You may have this already in your home. If not, it is a very inexpensive product and worth the try.  Its rehydrating properties will nourish your skin and give it a healthy glow.  These amazing ingredients are in pumpkins.

Don’t throw away the precious pumpkin pulp – put it to good use.  Put it in your blender, and puree it into a golden-orange cream. Some do-it-yourself recipes call for cooking the pulp first; others require the fresh pulp.

Both of these at home skin care recipes using natural pumpkin will leave your skin smooth and glowing.

Pumpkin Scrub

  1. Put 5-6 teaspoons of pumpkin pulp in your blender.
  2. Puree to a paste.
  3. Mix in 3-4 teaspoons of brown sugar.
  4. Optional-add a teaspoon of pumpkin seed oil or lemon juice.

Mix ingredients together and apply it to your face and gently scrub in small, upward circles for a couple of minutes. Rinse with water to remove. This DIY skin treatment will slough off dead skin cells gently and naturally.

Pumpkin Facial Mask

  1. Mix 3 tablespoons of pumpkin puree with 1-2 tablespoons of honey
  2. Add 1 tablespoon of milk (regular for oily skin or buttermilk for dry skin)
  3. Optional-add plain yogurt to mixture.

Spread paste onto your face. Let it rest for 10-15 minutes. Rinse with cool water and pat dry.
