Here is a quick recipe for the next time you give yourself a manicure or pedicure (or both.) Mix together pumpkin, an egg, honey, and yogurt and apply to your hands/arms and/or feet/legs. If doing a manicure, you may need help with this next step! Take plastic wrap and cover the mixture, but not too tightly. You do not want to cut off circulation. Plastic bags/gloves might work for you, too. Allow the mixture covered in plastic wrap to remain on the area for up to 15 minutes. After the time has passed, remove the plastic and rinse well. Apply a lotion and you are ready to go.
The pumpkin helps heal and smooth rough, cracked, and dry skin and promotes new cell production. The egg firms the skin and reduces redness while soothing skin irritations. The honey moisturizes, helps unclog pores, and contains antibacterial and antioxidant properties. The yogurt removes dead skin and hydrates the skin.
