DIY Pumpkin Foot Scrub


Pumpkin season is here again!! Today is officially the first day of fall and that means it is time for all things pumpkin – in our foods, coffee drinks AND our beauty products. You can celebrate the first day of the new season by making your own DIY pumpkin foot scrub from celebrity nail artist and owner of As U Wish Nail Salon, Skyy Hadley.

“Pumpkins are more than just for carving on Halloween,” Skyy notes. “They’re rich in vitamins and nutrients and can do wonders for your feet!” They contain “various enzymes that help nourish and brighten the skin, and just by adding raw sugar you have a perfect foot scrub,” she said.

Ready to dive in and get your feet ready for fall? Just mix up a batch. (And if you’re really nice you can make some for your friends too. They’ll love you for it!

DIY Pumpkin Foot Scrub

1 can pureed pumpkin
1 cup plain yogurt
½ cup raw sugar

2 tablespoons honey
1/4 teaspoon olive oil

Mix pureed pumpkin in a bowl. Stir in a yogurt, honey, sugar and olive oil. Wash your feet in warm water, and while your feet are moist, apply the scrub using your hands in a circular motion. Massage the mask onto your feet for 10 minutes on each foot and remove with warm water and a washcloth.

ScarAway Scar Repair Gel Review + Reader Giveaway

Sample DisclosureScarAway Scar Repair Gel sample


Many of us can find some sort of scar from a scrape, injury or mishap that has happened at one time or another.  It would be nice if we could get by without ever having injuries but usually at some point in life something is bound to happen… and leave a mark that we wish we didn’t have.

My husband has an adventurous story about when he raced my nephew up the ladder of a silo. He caught his arm on the metal ladder and it left a scar. Luckily there are amazing products like ScarAway® Scar Repair Gel that can help make scars so they are NOT the center of a conversation.


The first thing that we liked is that the Gel does not have a strong smell to it and is orderless.  We also liked that it does not have a color, ’cause who wants to look like they are covering up a scar and wearing makeup? More important is – who wants the Scar to be the first thing people notice?  If you have a scar and prefer it NOT to be the first impression people see for you, then try ScarAway® Scar Repair Gel.IMG_1257

ScarAway® Scar Repair Gel, featuring patented Kelo-cote® technology, carries the only patented, transparent, self-drying 100% silicone gel designed to improve the appearance of scars and prevent abnormal or excessive scar formation.

  • The elegant, transparent gel offers convenient application for custom scar prevention and treatment that can begin the moment a wound has healed or sutures are removed.
  • Results can be seen in as little as two to three weeks; full results may be seen in 60-90 for new scars and 90 days or more for older scars.
  • For the treatment and prevention of abnormal scars of various sizes and locations, including hypertrophic (red and raised) and keloid scars.
  • Effective on old and new scars.

Whatever the real story is with the chocolate dipped strawberries you eat, the Good Earth Beauty Chocolate Dipped Strawberries Body Cream is definitely good for your body. It is full vitamins and nutrients for your skin. Although it has a light and fluffy texture, it provides a deeply moisturizing luxurious experience.
