Ways Pumpkin Can Enhance Your Beauty

Did you try adding pumpkin to your beauty regime? If not, here’s why you should give the pumpkin a go! Pumpkin contains alpha hydroxy acids and enzymes that can help smooth and brighten your skin and the vitamin A and C can prevent free-radical damage. So try these beauty recipes recommended by cosmetologist Nandita Das to enhance your beauty.


Body Scrub

Of course, you can make this scrub for your body too. Not only will it tighten the skin, but it will even reduce cellulite.


Peel-off Exfoliating Treatment

Peel-off exfoliating treatment: To half cup pumpkin juice, add two packs unflavoured gelatine, two teaspoons egg whites and one teaspoon tomato juice. Microwave the mixture and wait for it to cool before applying a layer of it onto your skin. Allow the mixture to dry and then peel off. This peel-off treatment will help tighten and brighten your skin.


Hair Mask

Hair mask: Mix 1 tablespoon pumpkin seed oil, 1/3rd cup coconut oil, 1/3rd cup jojoba oil, five drops of eucalyptus essential oil, and five drops lavender essential oil. Massage it into your scalp and hair. Allow it to settle for a few minutes and then rinse it out completely with a mild shampoo. All these ingredients will stimulate the scalp and prevent hair loss. Also Read - Garlic: What happens when you drink garlic juice?
