DIY Pumpkin facial Mask

Pumpkin Spice is taking over our lives.  Everywhere you go there’s pumpkin something, candles, donuts, Fabreze pumpkin air freshener, ice cream, lattes; it’s endless.  Therefore, I decided to give into our love for all things pumpkin for pre-Halloween bash skin.

Pumpkin is packed with fruit enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), which increases cell turnover, to brighten and smooth the skin. Pumpkin contains antioxidant Vitamin A and Vitamin C to help soften and soothe the skin and boost collagen production to prevent the signs of aging.

Here’s a pro approved recipe from the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa in Palm Desert, California.

What you’ll need: 

  • Pureed, cooked fresh or canned pumpkin
  • Unflavored yogurt
  • Honey
  • Ground almonds
  • Olive oil

Directions:

  1. Start by mixing 2 cups of pureed, cooked fresh or canned pumpkin.
  2. Add 4 tablespoons unflavored yogurt, 4 tablespoons honey, 1/3 cup ground almonds, 1/4 teaspoon olive oil.
  3. Mix and apply to clean, moist skin.
  4. The enzymes are more active when moist, so sit in a warm tub or shower for 5-10 minutes.
  5. Remove with a clean washcloth.
  6. Apply moisturizer and enjoy soft clean dewy skin!
  7. Cover the rest of the mixture and use within a week.
