Pumpkin Body Moisturizer
This is a terrific and so-simple (3 ingredients!) DIY pumpkin moisturizer recipe, courtesy of Summer at Vegan Beauty Review, to calm and sooth wintery dry skin.
Pumpkin is a SuperFood (loaded with dietary nutrients) and it’s no surprise it does a body good, inside and out. Pumpkins are rich in antioxidants, beta-carotine, zinc, vitamins A & C, and natural alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), which aid in natural exfoliation and leaves your skin healthy and soft. Coconut Oil is moisture-rich with essential fatty acids, and Cinnamon, besides smelling wonderful, is anti-microbial.
Combine the three, and you have a super pumpkin moisturizer which keeps well in the refrigerator to get through the dry winter skin phase.
- 1/2 cup canned pumpkin (not pie mix)
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- Mix all the ingredients together until you have a smooth consistency.
- Apply the mixture to body as you would lotion.
- Leave on for about 10-15 minutes
- Rinse and dry.
