DIY halloween face mask

1 Nov

1573579417_d4e8679044October is pumpkin season, and what better way to use them up then to treat yourself (and your family) to a halloween pumpkin mask!

This could make for a perfect new fall family tradition.

Not only are pumpkins great for carving, they are also great for our skin, containing high levels vitamins A, C and E.

Your skin gets soothed by the vitamin A, while it gets repaired by the vitamin E, and gets the added benefit of vitamin C which produces collagen and provides your skin elasticity.

Sounds too good to be true? Try it at home, and have fun with your orange-hued faces!

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup pumpkin flesh
  • 1 egg
  • 1-2 tbsp honey

Directions:

1. Whisk: Place pumpkin, egg and honey into a food processor, and blend until mixed.

2. Apply: Avoiding the eyes, nostrils and lips, apply the mask to a clean face. Let it stay on for 15-20 minutes.

3. Remove: Rinse with warm water, and pat dry. Enjoy the beneficial effects of pumpkin!
