Pumpkins and cranberries in the supermarket signal the beginning of the holiday season. As it happens, these two festive foods also provide a feast for your skin.

Savvy spas and beauty product manufacturers are capitalizing on the autumnal bounty to help customers develop a fetching glow. For instance, the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills offers a fruit and pumpkin enzyme peel, and Verabella Skin Therapy (also in Beverly Hills) is showcasing what it calls the "Fall on Your Face" facial with pumpkin. Skin-care brands including Eminence, Jason Natural and Kiss My Face make cranberry scrubs, lotion and body washes -- some organic -- that smell delightful.

And you can even use your leftover holiday treats to create economical home treatments. Read more here in our Image section:
