Leftover: Pumpkin Puree
DIY Recipe: Pumpkin Spice Pedicure
Since pumpkin is chock full of good-for-you nutrients, it only makes sense that it would pack the same benefits for your skin. With the weather getting colder, it's a great ingredient to add to your beauty treatments since it nourishes tired and dry skin instantly, plus gives it a gorgeous healthy glow.
What You'll Need:
½ cup pumpkin puree and 1 egg. Optional ingredients: splash of milk, 1 tsp honey
Method and Application:
Mix ingredients together and apply the pumpkin masque to feet and calves. Wrap in plastic bags. Sit back and relax for 15-20 minutes, then rinse with warm water. Dry off and apply a few pumps of your favorite moisturizer or lotion (try a Vanilla scent) to keep feet and calves silky-smooth and hydrated. Cut and file nails as desired.
Ed note: This recipe is best applied after using an exfoliating scrub on your feet and legs. To stay within the holiday spirit, we recommend Burt's Bees Cranberry & Pomegranate Sugar Scrub, $13, burtsbees.com
