Pumpkin Face Scrub

With fall being just two weeks away, I know I don’t just speak for myself when I say that I am excited for pumpkin season. Pumpkin candles, pumpkin smoothies, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin chocolates, pumpkin pie, and everything else you can imagine. This morning I had the urge to celebrate the coming of fall a little early and decided to make something with the ingredients I already had in my house. I settled on pumpkin face scrub!   Pumpkin face scrub is extremely easy to make. It only requires a handful of ingredients and you can get as creative as you want. When it comes to the health of your skin, homemade face scrubs are an excellent choice because you have control over the ingredients used. My skin has been very sensitive in the past so I have to stay away from all chemicals (which are in most all beauty products if you read the labels). My skin routine consists of using a mild castille soap for cleansing, coconut oil for moisturizing and and homemade face scrubs for exfoliating. The benefits of this pumpkin face scrub include:

  • Exfoliating: Helps to remove the dead skin cells that can make skin appear dry leading to brighter and softer skin.
  • Moisturizing: Jojoba oil has a very similar structure to sebum allows it to absorb easily into your skin making it a gentle moisturizer for all skin types.
  • Acne-fighting: Coconut oil’s antimicrobial properties help destroy bacteria that can cause acne, preventing future breakouts.

I hope you enjoy this pumpkin face scrub recipe! To give as a gift, tie on a bow and create your own label. It bumps up the cuteness factor.

I am an aspiring homesteader on a journey to become self-sustainable and free. In my past, I've worked corporate jobs to make ends meet and get ahead a little; it didn't make me happy or confident in my future. Since taking the leap to self-employment and living a more simple life, my happiness levels have increased greatly and I've never felt more alive. I finally understand what I want in life and how to get there, and that is what this blog is all about.
