By the time we hit October, autumn is well and truly underway. And with autumn comes some of our favourite things; fresh mornings, warm jumpers and cosying up with hot drinks - and of course that includes a pumpkin spiced latte!

But what if we could take these seasonal vegetables and reap their benefits in our beauty regimes too?

The Beauty Benefits Of Pumpkin

Pumpkins are packed full of beauty benefits including:

  1. Healthy Skin - Pumpkin is full of vitamin A, zinc and antioxidants, essential nutrients for healthy-looking skin. They can prevent pores from getting clogged, limit breakouts and reduce the signs of ageing!
  2. Healthy Body - Vitamin C and E are also abundant in this winter squash, both of which contribute to a strong immune system and help fight off infections.
  3. Healthy Mind - Pumpkin also contains lots of iron – your essential stay-positive mineral that will increase your energy levels and help you perform well mentally. Say goodbye to the winter blues!

DIY Pumpkin-Based Beauty Treatments

Found yourself with leftover pumpkins laying around after some Halloween carving with the family? Yes, you can make a soup or a pie... But, instead, why not make the most of a pumpkin’s beneficial minerals and vitamins, and give a homemade pumpkin beauty treatment a go!

Face Mask

Why not try making an exfoliating and moisturising face mask? Mash 200g of pumpkin, and add a tablespoon of honey, two tablespoons of brown sugar and half a cup of yogurt. Stir together, coat your skin with the mixture and leave for 10 to 15 minutes. You can then rinse it off with warm water and admire your smooth skin.

Lip Scrub

You could also create your own homemade lip scrub. Add 2 teaspoon of sugar to 1 teaspoon of pumpkin puree and 1 teaspoon of sugar. Stir together, massage into your lips then wipe off. Finish off the pamper session with a coat of hydrating lip balm.

Hand Cream

To make your own hand cream, place 1 teaspoon of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of honey and 50g of pumpkin puree in a bowl and mix together. Spoon a dollop into your palm and rub it into your hands, before rinsing off with warm water. You’ll be left with silky-smooth skin.

I'm someone who loves getting glammed up, but I feel like I never have enough time. Frequently running between work, the gym and seeing friends means my makeup routine is quick and often touched up on the go. Therefore, beauty products that serve as multi-purpose are perfect for me - a blush that works for cheeks and lips is a must in my makeup bag!
