Pumpkins have many health and beauty benefits; they are particularly rich in vitamin A, they have immunity boosting vitamins, and they contain lutein and zeaxanthin, which protects eyesight. Pumpkins also mainly promote the production of collagen, which helps improve your skin tone and your skin’s elasticity. 

Although some people consider pumpkins to be vegetables, they have fruit enzymes that helps naturally exfoliate and get rid of dead skin cells. And after getting your skin together, you may as well get your body together! Pumpkins are one of the most beneficial fruits to use for a diet because they are low on calories and high in fibre. Pumpkin’s high antioxidant content may reduce the risk of chronic and fatal diseases.

Beauty-Related Pumpkin DIY’s:

  • Pumpkin Face Mask (Oily/Dry Skin)
  • Pumpkin Conditioner
  • Pumpkin Sugar Body Scrub
  • Pumpkin Lip Fix 


Pumpkin FaceMask (Oily Skin):

Mix together 1 tablespoon of pumpkin puree and 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar. Apply the facemask on a damp face and leave until it has dried or up to 30 minutes. Rinse it off with lukewarm water, then rinse once with cold water. And for extra , you can apply a moisturizer for your skin type.                                               *This mask removes oils and conditions skin.* 

This mask detoxified pores, tightened skin, and leaves the skin feeling rejuvenated. This mask also leaves your skin soft to the touch with a natural glow. 


Pumpkin Facemask (Dry Skin): 

Mix together 2 tablespoons of pumpkin puree, ½ teaspoon of honey, ¼ teaspoon of milk, and ¼ teaspoon of heavy whipped cream. Apply the mask evenly on your face and let it settle for about 10-15 minutes. Then rinse it off with warm water, following with cold water.                                                                                       *This mask exfoliates, nourishes, and conditions skin.* 

This mask tightens and brightens your skin, leaving a natural glow, and detoxifies your pores. This would work better and stronger the more regularly you use it. 


Pumpkin Conditioner: 

You will need: 2 cups of chopped or cooked pumpkin, 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, 1 tablespoon of honey, and 1 tablespoon of yogurt. Make a puree with a mixture of pumpkin and yogurt. Add the coconut oil and honey to make a smooth consistency. Apply this conditioner to shampoo-ed hair, and leave in for 10-15 minutes. Rinse it out as you usually would. 


Pumpkin Sugar Body Scrub:

Mix together equal parts of pumpkin puree and olive oil. Add enough sugar to have a thick consistency. While you are in the shower, apply this sugar body scrub with a washcloth or loofah and rinse. 

This product works very well, although I would recommend putting more pumpkin than olive oil. This scrub actually exfoliates and moisturizes, and the best results occur when washed off with warmer water. 


Pumpkin Lip Fix: 

Mix together ¼ teaspoon of pumpkin puree, ¼ teaspoon of coconut oil, and ½ teaspoon of fine sugar. 

After using the finished product, my lips felt moisturized and fresh. Unfortunately, after a couple minutes, it began to make my lips feel sticky. It tasted nice, and I would recommend trying this out if you’re planning on using it regularly.
