Homemade Fall Pumpkin Face Mask

You know that it is fall when you walk by a coffee shop and can smell the aroma of pumpkin infused into the coffee or in the loaves of bread fresh out of the oven. However, what you may not realize is that pumpkin is a great skin ingredient. It has natural exfoliating acids and anti-oxidants that are great for resurfacing and re-texturing. Pumpkin works on calming breakouts down, brighten your skin and soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Here is a great homeade recipe that I came across a year ago and it is a favorite of mine and can be used for all skin types.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup pumpkin
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon almond milk (if you have dry skin)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of honey (if you have dry skin)
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar (if you have oily skin)

Directions

Puree 1/4 cup of fresh pumpkin into a thick paste then add the egg. If you have dry skin add the almond milk and honey.  For oily skin skip the milk and honey instead use apple cider vinegar. Mix well and apply the mask and leave on for 10 to 20 minutes. Rinse with cool water.
