Usually, we only associate pumpkins with Halloween decorations or autumn cakes. However, it is worth keeping some in the freezer for use throughout the year. It's not just about preparing delicious dishes and homemade masks which have a beneficial effect on the skin. Pumpkins can also be used to prepare other household cosmetics that nourish the skin and help it regain a consistent tone.


Why use pumpkins for skin care? As it has already been mentioned, pumpkins improve skin tone as they contain significant amounts of beta-carotene. At the same time, they are a rich source of vitamins A and C, which are natural antioxidants and therefore inhibit ageing of the skin. You can also use pumpkin seeds for skin care, which are very easy to store throughout the year. They are also widely available in many stores. Pumpkin seeds are rich in zinc, which is beneficial for skin with acne.

What cosmetics can be prepared using pumpkins?

One of the most interesting ideas for domestic cosmetics using pumpkins is facial scrubs. The process of preparing them is very simple. First of all, you need approx. one cup of pumpkin mousse, to which you should add a quarter cup of coconut oil. After mixing the coconut oil with the mousse, add coarsely ground coffee beans and thick Himalayan salt. This scrub will gently exfoliate the skin, improve skin tone, as well as moisturise and nourish the skin, leaving it smooth and pleasant. The coffee beans will also tighten your skin. The advantage of this product is the fact that it is one hundred percent natural and has a beautiful fragrance.

Another cosmetic that you can prepare yourself at home, this time on the basis of pumpkin seeds, is a tonic. It will especially help with acne. You only need pumpkin seeds and boiling water. Pour boiled water over the seeds and use it to gently rub your skin.
