Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice

Pumpkin pie. Pumpkin spiced lattes. Pumpkin pretty much everything. Now that Halloween is almost creeping out, you better start thinking what to do with your ‘scary’ carved pumpkins. I say it in inverted commas because mine is as scary as a mouse wearing furry cotton socks. With the addition of these huge orange gourds to your beauty regimes can truly enhance your skin. Pumpkins are enriched with Vitamin B, C and E, allowing you to boost your winter glowing complexion and balance your pH tones. They also help restore Collagen and Elastin beneath your layers, leaving your skin polished and firm. Most importantly, pumpkins are crammed with Carotenoids. Carotenoids are the reason for their significant orange appearance. Here’s a fun fact; by eating pumpkins, you can reverse UV damage and improve your skins texture. I know, you must be thinking  “what UV, I see no sun?!” But, hidden behind those grey cloudy skies are rays of UV striking down. Pumpkin products can shield you from the nasty little UV monsters by acting as a form of sunscreen. As for your hair, a simple pumpkin hair mask can add the nutrition your hair needs to fight the winter cold and keep it healthy. Pumpkins are locked with sources of minerals, including Potassium and Zinc. Whilst Potassium helps in improving re-growth, Zinc holds Collagen which energises your hair to stay healthy. Below are my top autumnal pumpkin DIY remedies, beneficial for all types of skins and hair!

Lets get cracking, or should I say carving…
