Pumpkin is arguably this month's most celebrated ingredient. We carve it, mash it, bake it, and puree it. We light it up and serve it up. So why shouldn't we make it the star of our October beauty treatments too?
Halloween marks the start of what is often an expensive holiday season with parties to plan, places to go, and endless gifts to wrap. So, after you have exhausted all the pumpkin recipes, use the leftover pumpkin to make your own pumpkin hair mask, body scrub, and body butter (recipes below). These treatments, partnered with your favorite Look Beauty facial mask, make for the perfect low cost at-home spa treatment.
After making the pumpkin spa treatment items, start by applying the hair mask. While the hair mask is conditioning, apply a Look Beauty facial mask. Look Beauty offers five different facial masks addressing some of the most common face care issues. Look Beauty combines vitamins, extracts, and essential elements in an easy-to-use spa like facial treatment. Partnering these treatments together you receive double the benefit without spending double the time!
With your hair and face refreshed, use the pumpkin body scrub to slough off dry skin and the pumpkin body butter to rehydrate. Concerned about the smell of pumpkin? That may not be all bad. A study conducted by The Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation showed that 40% of men responded positively to the pumpkin scent when mixed with lavender.
Crisp autumn weather stirs something inside many of us. Perhaps it's a childhood memory or the love of a holiday tradition, but a hot bowl of a creamy soup or the aroma of a warm, rich scent can take us back to a special moment in time. These tastes and smells comfort and relax us.
Just as the scenery around us follows Mother Nature's color scheme, so should your fall make-up palette.
Fall is here with great fall fashions and new fall colors like carafe - a rich, glamorous brown. While dark shades are gorgeous in fashion, they're not so beautiful spotting your face.
