Pumpkin beauty DIYs are actually incredibly simple, cheap, and easy to throw together at the last minute. You don't even need to carve a pumpkin (unless you want to). When it comes to skin care, pumpkin puree (aka canned pumpkin) is a great substitute for the actual thing. So put the carving knife down, and head to the grocery store. With benefits like added hydration, anti-aging, and anti-acnegic, you'll wonder why you haven't been using this stuff before. Seriously, it works great for most at-home beauty concoctions. You'll be adding to more than just your coffee order. Wondering where to start? Here are a few my favorite pumpkin beauty DIYs.

1. Pumpkin Face Mask

  • 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree

If you're looking to remove dead skin cells, moisturize your skin, and fight off any lingering bacteria, then this pumpkin mask is for you. Pumpkin is a great source of antioxidants and vitamins that are perfect for perking up skin. These benefits combined with the antibacterial power of cinnamon, and the anti-aging benefits of greek yogurt are bound to leave you with a glowing complexion.

2. Pumpkin Spice Body Scrub


  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup of pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon of pumpkin spice

Buff away dead skin cells by using this delectable body scrub. The pumpkin dissolves dead skin with the help of the brown sugar. The two combined make for an excellent exfoliator. When coupled with the moisturizing benefits of the coconut oil, your body will be glowing from head to toe after just one use.

3. Pumpkin Hair Conditioner

The cinnamon oil works to help stimulate hair growth, and scalp circulation, so you'll have thick, luscious hair in no time.
