I whipped up this little seasonal sensation yesterday and couldn't wait to share it with you! I tend to fall in love with all things pumpkin this time of year. Pumpkin is rich in vitamins A and C, zinc, alpha-hydroxy acids and beta-carotene antioxidants, all of which aid in maintaining healthy, glowy skin. So, I adapted this fresh face scrub from the Sakara people, because why not put it on your face! It sloughs off dead skin cells, brightens, hydrates, and nourishes. Slather it on, enjoy the smell, and see the glow!
Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub
1 cup organic brown sugar
1/2 cup pumpkin puree (homemade or organic canned pumpkin)
1/2 cup unrefined cold-pressed coconut oil
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon almond oil
Combine organic brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice. Add in pumpkin puree, coconut oil and vitamin E oil. Mix all ingredients together.
After cleansing skin, apply a small amount of scrub to face. Use fingers to gently massage in circular motions (avoid the eye area). After 1-2 minutes, rinse with warm water.
