Pumpkin Pretty. It’s not just Dr. Oz. Now The Doctors TV Show recommends pumpkin pie for your skin too.

It’s not just Dr. Oz. Now The Doctors TV Show recommends pumpkins for you skin too. Here are a couple of recipes for you skin from the Doctorstv.com today.  And I thought Pumpkins were just for pies.  See other foods used coametically at the site as well.

Pumpkin Pretty

High in vitamins A and C, antioxidants and minerals, pumpkins nourish the body and help build tissue. Use the recipes below to keep your skin smooth and moisturized during the winter.

Pumpkin Facial
2 teaspoons cooked or canned pumpkin
½ teaspoon honey
¼ tablespoon milk (or whipped cream if your skin is very dry)

Combine ingredients and apply to face. Leave on for 15 minutes, then rinse with warm water.

Enzymes from the pumpkin gently exfoliate dead skin cells without scrubbing, which can break capillaries.
Milk and honey attract and retain moisture.

Pumpkin Body Butter
½ cup cooked pumpkin puree
½ cup solids from a can of coconut milk (crème at the top of the can)
½ teaspoon cinnamon

Spread mixture generously on skin and leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water.
Coconut crème moisturizes skin, while cinnamon brings blood and nutrients to the skin’s surface, giving it a healthy glow.
