Make Your Own Face Mask at Home with Pumpkin Pie Mix




Fall has arrived! And with that comes some of our favorite things: leaves changing colors, pumpkin-spiced beverages, cooler weather, and so much more!

If your skin's feeling a little rough after a summer of sun exposure, you'll want to give it some moisture with a homemade mask. Making this pumpkin enzyme face mask, created by the co-founder of the California beauty shop The Body Deli, is super easy: all you need is some pumpkin pie puree and a few other common ingredients, and you'll be left with a glowing -- and yummy smelling -- face!


Ingredients:

  • 1 can pumpkin pie puree (organic if possible) [Try Whole Foods or Trader Joes]
  • 2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. pumpkin seed oil
  • 1 pinch cinnamon
  • 1 pinch nutmeg


Directions:

  • Place half the can of pumpkin puree in a bowl and mix in the lemon juice, pumpkin seed oil and spices.
  • Apply the mask to the face and allow your skin to soak up the goodness for at least 10-15 minutes.
  • Best if used while soaking in a warm tub, steam helps to further penetrate and open pores. Wash off with warm water.

The recipe makes two treatments, and will last up to five days in the refrigerator.
