Here’s all you need for the perfect addition to your beauty routine.
Pumpkin Face Mask
- 2 tbsp canned pumpkin puree or 1 small pumpkin
- 1/2 tsp organic honey
- 1/2 tsp milk
- Make sure you apply this mask to a fresh, clean face. Remove all makeup and wash your face with your favorite cleanser.
- Next, combine pumpkin puree, honey, and milk in a small bowl and mix well. If you decide to use a fresh pumpkin, make sure to scrape the insides and remove all seeds. Beat the insides to a creamy texture, and mix with your honey and milk.
- Then, apply the mask using your fingers or a brush. Avoid areas around your eyes during application. If you’d like to apply to your neck and the area below your chin, make a separate mixture and double the ingredients.
- Allow your mask to set for about 25 minutes.
- After setting, gently wash your face with a warm, damp cloth and make sure to follow with your favorite moisturizer!
This recipe can always be doubled or tripled to make a larger batch, perfect for patches of skin that need a little R&R! A little goes a long way, and you want to make sure you use your mask when it’s fresh. Not to mention, the best part about making your own mask is that you can revise the recipe to what best suits you. As well as this being a great face mask, you can even make a daily cleanser by altering the ingredients! As always, do a spot test if you have sensitive skin.
