As the autumn air turns crisp and leaves dance in the wind, we tend to tuck up indoors and enjoy the cozy warmth. This shift into this lovely season is also an excellent time to treat your skin to all that the fall harvest has to offer. Apples, pumpkins, and sunflowers are staples in autumn décor, but did you know they’re also exceptionally nourishing for the skin?
Read on as I share one of my fall beauty recipes featuring autumn favorites: apple, pumpkin, and sunflower!
In this DIY fall facial, we turn to the nourishing goodness of apples, pumpkins, and sunflowers. Each ingredient is packed with nutrients and will refresh your skin with a bit of gentle exfoliation.
Apples are not only a delicious autumn treat; they also offer lots of beauty benefits! The applesauce in this recipe contains malic acid, making it great for gentle, astringent exfoliation. It's also soothing and nourishing for acne-prone and sensitive skin.
Pumpkin seeds are also amazing for nourishing the skin, thanks to their high levels of vitamin E and zinc, plus omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids. Sunflower seeds are also packed with essential fatty acids and antioxidant vitamins, making them perfect for your autumn beauty recipes. The sunflower seed meal and pumpkin seed meal is perfectly suited for a gentle exfoliating scrub because of its high fat content and soft granules.
