Pumpkin is no longer just an ingredient you use to make pies at Thanksgiving or carve during Halloween. Pumpkin has an abundance of skincare benefits. It is rich in vitamin A, which soothes and softens skin, and vitamin C, an antioxidant that helps repair damage caused by free radicals. This ingredient also contains natural enzymes to help dissolve dry skin cells for a brighter and clearer complexion.
Incorporate this powerful ingredient into your skincare routine with this easy at-home pumpkin face mask recipe from Indie Lee.
4 tbsp. organic pumpkin puree
4 tbsp. organic honey
½ tbsp. Greek yogurt or avocado oil
1 drop of sandalwood essential oil
1 drop of carrot seed oil
Dash of pumpkin pie spice (optional)
In a large bowl, mix all of the ingredients until well blended.
Cover the mask, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Apply to face and let sit for 5-10 minutes. Then rinse face with warm water and pat dry with a clean towel.
