How To: Pumpkin Facial Mask

I've got pumpkin on my mind.They are high in vitamins A and C and zinc, this gourd-like squash helps heal and protect the skin from free radicals, all while gently dissolving dead skin cells. The addition of egg helps bind the mask together, nourishing and lifting the skin.

You will see instant results with this mask! After the mixture is removed from the skin your skin is so soft it will be hard not to touch it. The smell is faint but so yummy. I noticed it dries up any imperfections I have over time with continued use and has made my skin appear more radiant! Love this mask :)

1 cup of pumpkin fresh or can
1 egg
+ a dash of milk or soy milk for extra moisture!

If desired, add a splash of milk, to give your skin some moister.
For dry skin, Add a bit of honey, which not only acts as a humectant, but the natural sweetener provides antiseptic properties, too. For oily skin, mix in a splash of apple cider or cranberry juice.

Apply the mixture on your face. Leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes and rinse off with warm water. I pat it after with a cold face cloth.

HOW TO: Almond Face Mask

Almonds and almond oil have been used for beauty purposes for ages. Being rich in nutrients, especially Vitamins A and E, almond oil improves complexion and soothes skin irritation and inflammation.  An almond face mask is a great way to repair damaged skin.  The natural ingredients that go into a homemade almond face mask rejuvenate the facial skin, making it healthy and glowing. An almond mask can especially prove handy if you have dry skin, and are having a tough time keeping your skin youthful and moisturized.

I tend to use this in the winter when my skin gets a bit tough and I want it to be itself again :) Enjoy!

1 tbsp honey
1 egg yolk
½ tsp almond oil
1 tbsp yogurt

Mix all ingredients and blend well! 

Apply the mask on your face and leave it on for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water and gently wipe the residue with a damp cloth to reveal a much softer and suppler skin.
