Use this scrub twice a week to exfoliate your skin. The pumpkin scent is great for this time of year, and it actually helps control acne-prone skin. The sugar is what helps with exfoliation, and the coconut adds much needed moisture for baby-soft skin. Be sure to keep the scrub refrigerated so it lasts 3-4 weeks, or toss it out once you start noticing its spoiling.

*As with all homemade recipes, be sure to pre-test the product on a patch on your skin to avoid any skin allergies.
