Beauty food // Pumpkin Body Scrub

October 23, 2014

pumpkin_body_scrub_6This pumpkin body scrub combines 2 of our favorite things – using food as beauty products + pumpkin (yes, more pumpkin!). The super simple body scrub uses ingredients that are probably already in your kitchen plus the readily-available-everywhere-you-turn canned pumpkin (not to be confused with pumpkin pie filling!). Pumpkin is packed with vitamins A & C and antioxidants, making it the perfect skin food. This body scrub combines the pumpkin with coarse sugar or salt, honey, and coconut oil, and voila, a tasty fall treat for your skin!
