Pumpkin Face Mask

It's pumpkin season and I'm sure after Halloween many of us will have lots of excess 'kins lying around. What to do with them? Well if you haven't carved them all up how about making a natural, moisturizing face mask? The ingredients in pumpkin will benefit all skin types, even sun damaged or sensitive skin. I found this simple recipe online for a soothing, healing, sweet smellin' mask that will leave your skin soft and glowing. And don't worry, you won't turn orange.


Pumpkin Pie Face Mask

Ingredients
2 teaspoons cooked or canned pumpkin, pureed
one-half teaspoon honey (humectant, regenerative) one-quarter teaspoon milk (or soymilk)

Optional Ingredients
For Dry Skin one-quarter teaspoon heavy whipping cream (moisturizing; alpha hydroxy acid)
-or-
one-half teaspoon brown sugar (exfoliates, moisturizes, alpha hydroxyl acid)

For Oily Skin
one-quarter teaspoon apple cider (tonic action promotes skin circulation; alpha hydroxyl acid; regulates pH).
-or-
one-quarter teaspoon cranberry juice (high in antioxidants critically important to the utilization of essential fatty acids to maintain balanced, nourished skin.

Directions
Combine the ingredients for your facemask. Mix gently and apply to your face avoiding the eye area. Rest and relax for 10-15 minutes while your pumpkin pie facemask gently exfoliates, nourishes and conditions your face. Rinse with warm water and apply the appropriate moisturizer for your skin type.
