I was surprised to see how popular
was last month.
So I thought it would be fun to throw in some of my DIY at home skin tips every now and then if it’s OK with you.
Back in my “working days”, before kids, steady income and me time I used to go in for a quarterly facial. (nice)
The esthetician would always treat me in the end with a pumpkin mask, it was wonderful. I can’t even remember the last time I had a facial in a spa but that’s OK.
There are so many fabulous ingredients in our cupboard to get the same results.
Pumpkin is loaded with natural exfoliating acids vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin A, zinc, beta carotene, and antioxidants. The mask always brightens my face and calms my dreadful breakouts. (yup, almost 40 and I still break out, no fair)
Pumpkin Face Mask
•1/2 cup fresh pumpkin pulp or canned pureed pumpkin
•2 teaspoons almond milk
•1 teaspoon honey
If you are starting with a real pumpkin, puree the pulp into a thick paste, then start mixing the rest of the ingredients in.
If you are using the pulp from the can, just start mixing in the egg, stir in the almond milk and the honey.
Apply the mask, leaving it on for 15-20 minutes. Rinse with cool water.
~Enjoy your brighter skin~

Thanks for sharing! One of my resolutions this year is to get down a better skin regimen and I prefer natural ingrediants when possible!
I think I would have a hard time not Taking Swipes with my Finger and tasting it while it was on my face… 🙂 On the FRESH pumpkin does that have to be backed in the oven first to soften or do you puree it Raw..?? Oh on the Breaking out!!! Who ever said it was just during your Teenage Years… I break out MORE now than I ever did when I was a Teenager… 🙂
