Pumpkin Season With Pumpkin Puree Skincare Recipe

Pumpkin season with pumpkin puree for facial skin care by Vermont Lavender

Pumpkins are a key indicator when it comes to the fall season, and Vermont Lavender has you covered.

The spicy scents of fall from pumpkin spice to orange, apple, clove and cinnamon are warming to the cold weather ahead. 

With pumpkins in mind, they’re also used not only in cooking, but are used in making skin nourishing soap like the pumpkin spice latte coffee soap. Pumpkin puree is full of antioxidants and vitamins A and C which can help keep your skin youthful and refreshed.

When skin care products are made with real ingredients like pumpkin puree they offer some really great benefits for the skin. Pumpkin is used to brighten and smooth the skin, but the vitamins that can aid in reducing signs of aging, reduce oil in the skin, and reduce acne all help the skin retain a natural healthy glow.

Energize with the spicy scent of pumpkins and smooth scent of latte combined in this super nourishing soap bar. Gentle of the skin with skin loving oils like palm (CSPO), olive oil and coconut oil plus a little sunflower oil for an added moisturizing benefit.

A healthy clean glowing skin starts with real pumpkin puree mixed right into this bar of soap.

Here’s a recipe for a real Pumpkin Mask and Pumpkin scrub. It’s a all-natural organic way to clean the face and give a beautiful glow the healthy younger looking skin.


Pumpkin Mask:

  • Mix 1 cup canned mashed pumpkin with
  • 2/3 cup mashed papaya.
  • Apply to clean, dry face
  • Leave on 10 minutes
  • Rinse with warm water

The benefits are for a range of multiple skin types from dull dry skin to aging mature skin to acne prone skin. Why does pumpkin help?  The pumpkin has an enzyme that can be stimulated by heat from our bodies and then gently exfoliate dead skin cells by sloughing off unwanted keratin proteins on the skins service. Thus providing a natural healthy glowing skin when rinsed off and gently dried.

Follow this up with a face moisturizer that’s made for your skin type to lock in all the moisture from this face mask.


Pumpkin Scrub:

  • Mix 1 cup canned mashed pumpkin with
  • 1/3 cup cranberry juice (no sugar added)
  • Massage over face with fingertips
  • Rinse with tepid water and pat dry

Pumpkin contains beta carotene, a natural way to exfoliate that refines pores and helps prevent breakouts.

These recipes are from: Herbalpedia

A pumpkin mask and scrub can be done 1-2 times per week. I would not recommend they be done together the same day as this would overstimulate the skin cells for the face.
