Thanksgiving-Themed Beauty That’s Good Enough To Eat

Thanksgiving week is officially upon us, and it’s safe to say that most of us have turkey on the brain. However traditional holiday-meal staples like cranberries, pumpkin, cinnamon and more can benefit more than just our bellies, and these essentials have a place in any skincare routine year-round. Why not get into the spirit a few days early—and get a beauty boost your friends and family may notice when you gather around the table on Thursday?

June Jacobs Creamy Cranberry Cleanser
With a fresh cranberry scent and a gentle hydrating formula, this cleanser will get you and your skin into the holiday spirit. Packed with an antioxidant blend of tea extracts, goji berry and grape seed plus nourishing algae extract and sunflower seed oil, it leaves skin feeling soft, smooth and clean but not stripped—and prepared for products that follow.

Eminence Organics Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant
Strawberries and rhubarb make for a delicious pie, but these ingredients can do a lot more for your skin. Naturally rich in antioxidants, strawberry and rhubarb add extra oomph to this gentle exfoliating powder, which features rice powder to absorb excess oil, lactic and salicylic acids to sweep away dull cells and an anti-aging BioComplex of coenzyme Q10 and alpha lipoic acid.

Jane Iredale POMMISST Hydration Spray
Pomegranate adds an unexpected twist to your usual turkey recipe (check out this onecourtesy of Bobby Flay), and gives your dinner guests an antioxidant boost while you’re at it. But you can enjoy the free-radical-fighting benefits of this superfruit anytime and give your skin an immediate surge of moisture with this powerful mist. Ideal for all skin types and excellent for setting makeup, this organic hydrating spray is just what your skin needs to survive winter.

Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask
Nothing says fall like pumpkin, and this gourd is in the spotlight between Halloween and Thanksgiving. In addition to being the season’s unofficial mascot, pumpkin flesh is rife with enzymes that provide gentle exfoliation—and the addition of alpha hydroxy acids and aluminum oxide crystals put this scrub at the top of your skin’s holiday wish list. With regular use, you can see more even skin tone, improvement in fine lines and wrinkles, and enhanced radiance well before 2019 arrives.

Kari Gran Lip Whip in Cinnamon
Cinnamon may be an essential spice for Thanksgiving and the holiday season, but its circulation-boosting benefits can give your lips a volume boost as well. This super-moisturizing balm does just this as it soothes chapped lips and provides long-lasting hydration to smooth dry, flaky skin with organic camellia and calendula oils.


Philosophy Apple Cider Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath
This all-in-one cleanser has you covered from head to toe—and surrounds you with the joyful scent of apple, cinnamon, cloves and brown sugar. A sweet treat for the senses and a time-saving multitasker that leaves your skin and hair smooth, the scrumptiously-scented suds also make for a decadent dip in the bathtub.
