Brightening Pumpkin Sugar Scrub
The bounty of autumn is upon us, with cold winds and cleansing rainstorms.
This time of the year always gets my inspiration going and takes me to the kitchen.. Im finding myself spending more free time than ever alchemizing over grounding, heavenly fall feasts that are filling and making me feel all warm inside.
I always have one too many squashes laying around, they are so handy for roasting, blending into creamy soups or delectable sauces over whole wheat pasta.
Squash is a warming vegetable that aids in detoxifying, quenches thirst and relives fidgetiness. It also helps reduce inflammation and improves circulation.
So if your like me and have pumpkins to spear, why not try your hand on this skin saving scrub? Makes a delicious Christmas present!
I guarantee you’ll fall in love with this fresh face scrub – packed with all the beautifying benefits of pumpkin.
Why love pumpkin? It’s rich in vitamin A and C, zinc, alpha-hydroxy acids and beta-carotene antioxidants, all of which aid in maintaining healthy, glowy skin.
