Pumpkins are the ultimate fall item, and now they are starting to be seen in beauty products. Pumpkins are extremely rich in natural anti-oxidants, beta-carotene, fiber, vitamins C and E, potassium, and magnesium. It not only works as a remedy for inflammation and irritation but it also contains skin-purifying healers that rid the skin of dry cells. These Pumpkin beauty products are perfect for the fall holidays and colder weather. What do you think about pumpkin beauty products? 


Pumpkins are an amazing natural skin treatment that can help restore and reverse skin damage from the sun. This pumpkin face mask and body scrub will help exfoliate and remove dead skin cells. I am definitely going to have to try these DIY pumpkin face mask and body scrub.
