5 DIY Pumpkin Masks To Make your Skin Look Fresh and New!
1. Go For The Basic
Add 1 tablespoon of cooked pumpkin, but canned pumpkin will work fine too, 1 teaspoon of raw honey, because it’s full of antioxidants and antibacterial properties, plus it’s a great moisturizer and can open your pores and help clean dirt out, and 1 teaspoon of Vitamin E to repair and renew your damaged skin. Now mix all those ingredients together in a bowl and then apply to your skin. Then make sure to leave it on for 15 minutes and then rinse off with cool water and a gentle cleanser. Notice the difference?
2. For Excessively Oily Skin
If your skin is naturally way too oily and you suffer from acne, then you should consider trying this magical recipe. You’ll need to add and mix 1 tablespoon of cooked pumpkin, and 1 teaspoon of raw apple cider vinegar, which will prevent blistering, and promotes healing while keeping your skin’s pH balance in check. After it’s all nice and mixed, apply it to your face and let it stay there for 15 minutes before you rinse.
3. Pumpkin Spice Latte Face Mask
You’ll need ½ cup brown sugar, 3 tablespoons of honey, 1 tablespoon of pumpkin puree, 1 tablespoon of ground coffee and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Now start by mixing the dry ingredients into a bowl. Then add the pumpkin and honey and stir until the dry and wet ingredients become nice and thick. Now apply with a spatula and leave it on your face for 20 minutes. Once the mask dries, splash water on your face and exfoliate by moving your fingers in small circular motions. Then wipe off any remaining residue with a warm damp cloth.
4. Pumpkin Mask Your Dry Skin
Use ½ cup of fresh pumpkin pulp because that’s where the exfoliating acids are most concentrated, you’ll add need 2 eggs to act as a binding agent, then stir in 2 teaspoons of almond milk, which is loaded with omega, and 1 teaspoon of honey. Mix it up and apply the mask. Then leave it on for 20 minutes before you rinse with cool water, and say goodbye to fine lines, sun damaged, and dry skin.
