Ultra Hydrating DIY Pumpkin Face Mask

Autumn brings a pumpkin extravaganza…pumpkin spice lattes….pumpkin-scented candles…even pumpkin-inspired beauty products. Ergo, an expensive organic pumpkin mask I recently spotted at the beauty store that inspired me to uncover this  homemade version. I learned that pumpkin contains enzymes that will basically slough off the dead skin cells leaving fresh, exfoliated, radiant skin in its place. Plus, pumpkin and honey are naturally hydrating, thus, providing smooth, supple skin. With this DIY Pumpkin Mask recipe, your skin will have that just-left-the-spa glow…
  • 3 tsp. pumpkin puree (fresh or canned is fine but be sure not to use pumpkin pie filling with sugar)
  • ½ tsp. honey
  • ¼ tsp. milk (buttermilk or whipping cream can also be used for an even thicker, creamier mask texture)
1)   Combine all ingredients in bowl until smooth
2)   Apply the mask to your face and leave on 10 minutes
3)   Rinse and go
