When I first starting posting my beauty DIYs 6 years ago, the Internet was less than accepting. Most people thought it was weird (you're putting WHAT on your face?) or weren't that into it. Now, DIY beauty is everywhere since the do it yourself and natural home remedies are popular--I've had spas use my recipes, even pet grooming places can use DIY beauty masks for dogs! I've got hundreds of recipes and ideas that I've shared so far, and I can't wait for even more of them on the blog.
And one of my favorite ingredients is pumpkin. Full of good-for-you-stuff, pumpkin (gourds) is SO good on the skin. I keep cans of it for use year-round. I've got a roundup of several that are easy to make and fun.

Before you make those pies this season, save a little for this body scrub.
Do you DIY?
