In the spirit of Halloween, I feel compelled to share my newest facial mask recipe with you. It’s easy to make at home from either an extra pumpkin you might have lying around, or with a can of organic pumpkin puree.
The properties that make pumpkin so nourishing for the body also benefit the skin. It is rich in zinc, which helps purify and cleanse an oily or acne-prone complexion. The pumpkin enzymes act as a gentle exfoliator that won’t strip skin with harsh irritants. And, it’s high level of Vitamins A and C promotes new cell regeneration.
This quick mask will nourish and soothe your skin with a blend of oils, and organic honey. Plus, it’ll smell just as delicious as what is in the oven!
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
