Men, don’t stop reading! Your bodies take a beating from cold weather, sunny winter days, environmental toxins, and stress, just like we women. One of the best things you can do is take care of your largest organ – your skin!
Have leftover pumpkin from Thanksgiving? Use it! Try the following recipes in your next shower, and your skin will thank you:
This mixture is antimicrobial and rich in antioxidants. It will help to remove dead skin and let your body breathe from the outside!
Harvest Spice Facial Scrub
Mix ingredients together, and gently apply to damp face. Leave on face for 30 minutes, then gently rinse using a warm washcloth. This might make your face tingle a bit, but this is normal.

Blend ingredients in a mixer and mix well. Apply to face or body and allow to sit for 15 minutes. Use this time to read something, or just sit in peace. Rinse with a warm cloth.
