DIY: Beauty Day

Today I made a few homemade, beauty themed type products. I made two sugar scrubs and I had some pumpkin left so I used the rest for a face mask. Caffeine is known to stimulate blood circulation. The pumpkin moisturizes and tightens your skin wonderfully! Don't forget to put these in airtight containers!






Mocha Spice Sugar Scrub



  • 1 cup sugar (any kind)
  • 1 tbsp ground coffee
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil (or other light oil like grapeseed or jojoba)



Pumpkin Face Mask
  • 1 cup pumpkin
  • 2 to 3 tbsp ground almonds
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp milk
*Don't forget to refrigerate this because it has milk in it!
I soaked my almonds in water overnight before doing this so that they would be softer and easier to grind.
Leave the mask on for about 10-15 minutes, wash off with warm water and you will be glowing!


Pumpkin Body Scrub
  • 1/2 cup pureed pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • you can also add a small amount of powdered cinnamon, clove, or a few drops of vanilla
