Too cheesy? Oh well, I tried. ANYWAYS! Pumpkin is an amazing ingredient to add to your skincare routine. It is jam packed with Alpha Hydroxy Acids, which makes it a natural exfoliant. Not only that, but it is full of vitamins. A, C and E, to be exact. These help with aging, sun damage, and even battling skin irritations. It’s a PERFECT use for that extra can of pumpkin everyone has laying around this time of year.
why i love this pumpkin face mask
As a licensed esthetician, I really love natural skincare. The less ingredients the better, in my opinion. The exfoliating properties of the pumpkin will leave your skin super smooth, and the moisture locking powers of honey will leave it super plump. Coconut oil and almond milk also help to heal and rejuvenate the skin. Nothing like a super simple, 4 ingredient mask to get you to fall in love with natural DIY skincare!
ingredients you’ll need
- Pumpkin Pureé
- Almond Milk
- Coconut Oil
how to make a pumpkin face mask
Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl. Spread in an even layer all over your face. Leave for 15-20 minutes, then rinse off.
To help with puffiness and redness, chill the mask before you apply. Avoid getting in your eyes!
tips for making this pumpkin face mask
You can add a teaspoon of fresh lemon juice to boost the brightening benefits!
To add some extra exfoliating agents, finely grind some oats in a blender or food processor. Mix in 1/4 cup to the mask and use a circular motion when applying.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. This mask can last up to two weeks and makes enough for you to use it every single one of those nights!
