3 Ways To Add Pumpkin To Your Skin Care Routine

fybc 8:3

The transition from the summer heat to brisk fall weather can certainly take a toll on your skin. Although stocking up on a quality moisturizer is beneficial, the key to keeping your skin fresh and healthy may be sitting in your backyard. Autumn is the best time to take advantage of pumpkin and its skincare benefits.

Pumpkins offer the benefits like:

  • Help promote cell turnover
  • Brightens & smooths skin
  • Is a natural source of zinc which fights acne
  • High in fatty acids and vitamin E

Regardless of the skin type you have, pumpkin-based products can help! Here are a few ways to incorporating pumpkin into your fall skincare routine:

1. Pumpkin Spice Body Scrub

Everyone needs a good exfoliant! They are great for getting rid of dry, dead skin and can help bring back a natural glow. However, it is important to moisturize after any scrub.  If you don’t have a moisturizer, simply add a few teaspoons of rich plant oil to your Pumpkin Spice scrub recipe.

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup organic canned pumpkin (or homemade pumpkin puree)
  • Mix sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon together. Mix with pumpkin. Apply to skin and scrub in a circular motion, and rinse.

2. Pumpkin Puree Moisturizer

This moisturizer should be made in small batches because it will get moldy if left unused. It should be stored in the fridge

In a large bowl mix:

  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Store in the fridge and use just like a regular moisturizer!

3. Pumpkin Flesh Facial

It sounds a bit odd, but you can toss pumpkin puree right onto your skin and leave it be for several minutes and be doing some good for your skin.

If you have a little more time, try this facial:

  • 2 tablespoons of canned pumpkin (puréed)
  • 1 tablespoon of soy yogurt or ¼ teaspoon of soy milk
  • ½ teaspoon of brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cranberry juice or
  • ½ teaspoon oatmeal

Since autumn is the season of pumpkin, put it to good use! Try these DIY seasonal skin care treatments and let us know how you like them.

Tricks To Managing A Breakout At Home

FYBC 9:19

There are so many DIY skin remedies out there, but it can be tough to know which ones actually work. Here at FYBC, we have tested a few fabulous skin care tips that not only work but can be done in the comfort of your own home. Save your self a trip to the drug store because the ingredients you need for a quick skin care fix are most likely in your cabinets at home. Take control of your skin care once and for all with the help of these tips. 

Sea Salt: Sea salt is an antiseptic, which is why many people notice that their skin clears up after being at the beach. The good news is that you don’t need to spend hours in the ocean to reap the benefits of saltwater. You can simply apply sea salt to your face to remove age spots, acne, and wrinkles.

Try it at home: All you really need to do is add one tablespoon of sea salt to a 16-ounce spray bottle of warm water. Lightly spritz your face with the combination each night and let the salt do its work.

Aspirin and Honey: This combination is perfect with skin irritation and inflammation strikes. Although aspirin is most commonly used for pain, it also reduces external swelling, which means a red, irritated pimple can go from noticeable to hardly visible in a short amount of time. Honey, on the other hand, is a natural antibiotic that can disinfect your pores.

Try it at home: Crush a single aspirin in a bowl and add a small amount of toner to create a paste. Apply the paste to your blemish for around five minutes. Wash it off and then apply honey and leave it on for ten minutes. 

Lemon and Sugar:  This little trick is great if you are dealing with stubborn pores clogged with dirt and oil. This pair targets oily skin! Since lemons are a natural antiseptic and sugar is an exfoliant, this combination will open up your pores and penetrate the skin to fight acne. 

Try it at home: Cut a lemon in half and sprinkle sugar on one of the exposed halves. Apply that to your face each night to remove dead skin. Say goodbye to acne and welcome fresh, glowing skin.

Ways To Prevent Dry Skin

FYBC 9:14The fall chill has moved in fast this season, which means the autumn weather is almost here. Soon the temperature will drop and the notorious Colorado dryness will set in. Although we love the autumn season here at FYBC, there are some downsides to fall and winter in Colorado. Dry skin is certainly a common symptom for most during this time of this year, however, there are a few ways to combat dry, irritated skin during colder weather. By simply added these steps to your daily skin routine, you will see a major difference in the way your skin looks and feels:

  • Avoid Washing Your Face Too Much – Over-washing your face in one day is going to dry your skin out faster than you think. Wash your face in the evening after a long day and use your moisturizer. In the morning, refresh your skin with a warm cloth but avoid scrubbing your face with any cleanser. By over-washing your face, you prevent the regeneration of skin cells and oils that will come in handy when the temperature drops.
  • Pair Your Moisturizer With Oil – Give your moisturizer a little help by adding a few drops of pure argan oil. The oil will replenish your skin and keep your face looking supple and glowing all day long. Argan oil has intense lasting power and will keep your skin hydrated!
  • Try A Hydrating Facial Mask – Once or twice a week give your skin a little love with a hydrating face mask. You can make your own using honey and plain yogurt. Leave your mask on for 15 minutes and then rinse it off. You will find that your face will look hydrated and happy!

Don’t let the chilly weather give your face a beating. Combat the Colorado dryness and look fabulous all season long with our help. For more information on our skin care, visit our salon today.

DIY Beauty Hacks To Try This Weekend

fybc pic.jpg

The weekends are for relaxing and making time for a little TLC. While you’re enjoying your a few days away from the realities of the work week, we have a few fun and luxurious beauty tips that are sure to brighten up your weekend and your complexion. These weekend beauty tips are just a few from our list of DIY favorites.

Make Your Skin Glow: On Sunday night, mix a pinch of turmeric with 2 tablespoons of honey in a small cup. The combination of the turmeric and honey will create a paste that will be applied like a facial mask. Apply the mixture to your face and neck to stimulate blood flow, draw out toxins, lighten dark spots, and kill bacteria. Leave the mixture on your face for 15 minutes for radiant skin all week!

Say Goodbye to Dark Circles: Look for an eye treatment that contains caffeine and keep it in the fridge until you are ready to use it. Cold temperatures (or anything cold for that matter) constrict blood vessels and is simply perfect for reducing under-eye puffiness. Then, the caffeine detoxifies the skin under your eyes and breaks up any baggage. Lightly dab the cream onto your under-eye area as soon as you get out of bed Saturday and Sunday to look more awake on Monday.

Enjoy your weekend but head into the upcoming work week feeling like a glowing goddess. Spent a few moments this weekend caring for and loving yourself.  If you need a little extra something for your skin, book an appointment with us! We offer amazing facials, spray tans and so much more.
