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.
