Here Are 7 DIY Pumpkin Beauty Recipes That Will Give You an Autumn Glow



Here's an important PSA: Pumpkin is crazy good for you. It's chock-full of fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It's just that, unfortunately, we don't always consume the healthiest of pumpkin-inspired recipes. Yes, we're referring to the notorious PSL. Pumpkin pie and pumpkin bread also need not apply. 

So how can we soak up more of that pumpkin goodness? As it turns out, very easily. It’s time to start incorporating orange into your beauty routine.

As if that’s not reason enough, studies have shown that the yellow-orange pigments, called carotenoids, lend a natural glow to the skin. If pumpkin is the secret to enhancing and/or maintaining tanned skin, we’ll take it.

Here we've assembled a list of the best pumpkin DIY beauty treatments. They will make your skin and hair happy and healthy, despite the looming chill in the air. Keep scrolling to see a list of seven pumpkin recipes to include into your autumn beauty routine.
