Good morning, my loves! I suggest you make some time to relax and treat yourself with a homemade, budget friendly, Pumpkin Inspired Spa day! I have some recipes that will have your senses reeling with satisfaction and your skin "Thanking" you for how you'll be treating yourself. I believe in the power of being kind to ourselves.  Some days it can seem like a chore to give us a little love, so I say, start small and try even just one of my ideas. You'll see a huge difference in your skin and mood! Here's my segment on Good Day about this! 

 

Here are my favorites right now. 

Pumpkin Peel Facial
½ Cup organic canned pumpkin
1 Tbsp. raw honey
1 Tbsp. unflavored almond milk
1 Tsp. coconut oil

Let's talk about what makes pumpkin good for our skin! 
Pumpkin is packed with fruit enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), which increase cell turnover, to brighten and smooth the skin.  This is something I'd do if I was feeling dry. Now, remember that doing something once, isn't going to fix any sort of skin problem or issue, there is something to be said about being consistent with any skin regimen to see the benefit of it. There are so many factors that go into the way our skin is behaving.  I am not an esthetician to give you more in depth information. However,  I am just giving you a fun beauty mask I personally love for my skin.  I love this facial as a fun, November-appropriate,  DIY treatment to make you feel pampered and special. 

Pumpkin pie scrub
1/2 Cup sugar
1/4  Cup coconut oil
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
2 tsp. vanilla extract

This scrub is something that smells so delicious you'll wanna eat it!  And you very well could! I love doing this when I'm feeling grubby and I need a good shave. I exfoliate all of my skin right before and it makes my skin so nice and soft! I love everything about this, I am so excited for you to try it out! 

Fall spice bath salts
1/2 Cup Epsom Salt
2 Drops Cinnamon doTerra Essential Oils ** My favorite because of how natural and great they are
2 Drops Clove doTerra Essential Oils  ** My favorite because of how natural and great they are
2 Drops Orange doTerra Essential Oils  ** My favorite because of how natural and great they are

Give yourself a full on, spa night and catch some relaxing vibes in a hot bath infused with these salts that are going to aid in relaxation but also delight your smell. 

Okay, that's all I have for today! I know you'll love these if you try them out! Please know you are loved! So. Very. Much!
