We love Halloween, and we're sure you do too, but did you know that your pumpkins have way more uses than a jack-o-lantern? Here are a few handpicked ideas to get you started.
Give yourself a treat and try something different this year
Pumpkin is good for your skin. Pumpkins contain vitamin A, which helps with cell turnover and reduces wrinkles, making it great for anti-aging purposes. They also contain antioxidants which help protect against sun damage and other harmful environmental factors that can lead to premature aging or even cancer!
Here is a recipe for pumpkin body moisturiser we handpicked for you:
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Store in the fridge and use just like regular moisturizer!
You can just toss some pumpkin puree right onto your skin and leave it be for several minutes. Wash with warm, clean water.
Pumpkin is good for your hair. Pumpkins have tons of Vitamin B6, which helps strengthen hair follicles so they don't fall out as easily (or at all). Pumpkins are also high in beta carotene which gives them their orange color—and the reason why people think pumpkins might make their skin orange if eaten regularly enough over time!
Top Tip: Simply mash the pumpkin flesh with a carrier oil (either coconut or castor oil), apply to your hair and leave in for 30 minutes. Wash out thoroughly with a sulphate and paraben free shampoo and conditioner, and repeat once a week for best results!
Pumpkin is good for your nails too! Vitamin C from eating plenty of citrus fruits like oranges help produce collagen in our bodies which keeps our nails strong by preventing breakage when we're working hard every day doing whatever tasks may come across our paths...even though sometimes those tasks involve clicking through Netflix shows all night long without breaks until we finally pass out because exhaustion wins over sleepiness every single time (at least here's hoping).
