Bring the scents of the season into your bath with this aromatic pumpkin pie sugar scrub, a gentle exfoliating scrub with a hint of cinnamon, cloves, allspice and zesty ginger to freshen and invigorate the skin.
Sugar scrubs are formulated with granules of sugar which are used to physically remove dead skin cell buildup that naturally occurs. This process is known as exfoliation. The pumpkin pie sugar scrub offers a gentle exfoliating process that gives the appearance of smoother, glowing skin.
How to Make Pumpkin Pie Sugar Scrub
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1/4 cup of pumpkin seed oil (can use olive oil instead)
- 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
Next.. add a pinch of each of the following
- ground cloves
- ground allspice
- ground ginger
Combine the sugar and spices in a small bowl, mixing well. Drizzle in the pumpkin seed or olive oil and stir. The pumpkin scrub will be the consistency of a thick paste when it’s ready to use.
How to Use a Sugar Scrub:
- Sit on the edge of a tub and moisten the area you wish to scrub.
- Place a tablespoon or so of the body scrub in the palm and gently work each area for approximately 1 minute. If you work too quickly you won’t properly exfoliate.
- Scour gently for just a few minutes.
- Rinse with warm water.
- For baby smooth skin, exfoliate up to twice weekly.
How often should you exfoliate?
Typically, the average person needs to exfoliate about twice per week using a topical sugar scrub such as this pumpkin pie sugar scrub recipe we shared above. You’ll find that during the late fall and winter months, this scrub is invigorating and moisturizing as well.
