Facial Mask Recipes: Pamper With Pumpkin
It’s fall and that means it’s time for one of my revitalizing fall facial mask recipes! I love fall, even though I live in South Florida and very many leaves don’t fall like up north, you can still detect a hint of crispness in the air! Our weather is mostly hot, yet in a few weeks it will start getting a little bit cooler. I can’t wait when the humidity goes down a bit…I also can’t wait to feast on some of my favorite fall foods, like squash and pumpkin. Have you ever thought about using these fall foods in your beauty routine? Last year, I posted on using pumpkin as a facial mask and I’ve decided to rerun the post in honor of the start of fall. Since last year, I’ve discovered you can cheat a bit and use canned pumpkin…my skin was just as lovely! Enjoy the post and video.
Facial Mask Recipes: A Pumpkin Facial
I am a big fan of DIY (do-it-yourself) beauty and thought, what a perfect time to find a DIY pumpkin recipe. Pumpkins are now ripe for the picking and many families will be choosing their special one from the pumpkin patch. After you carve your pumpkin into a jack-o-lantern, don’t throw out the pulp! Use it on your face! Pumpkins are one of the most healthy vegetables (it’s in the squash family) and are full of caroteniods, such as beta carotene and lutein. Carotenoids are powerful anti-oxidants which neutralize skin damage. Pumpkin pampers, soothes, moisturizes, and gives the skin a natural glow.
It couldn’t be easier to do one of your own pumpkin facial mask recipes. Sometimes, the simpler the better. Just use the leftover pumpkin flesh, mash it or put it in a food processor and spread all over your face. Wait 15 minutes, then rinse. Your face will have that Halloween glow!
