The magic powers of pumpkin!
Try this recipe at home for an easy and effective pumpkin facial mask:
- Make your base: Whisk together about 1/4 cup of pumpkin and one whole egg. The yolk adds nourishment while the white provides a subtle tightening effect to sagging skin.
- Dry skin additive: Add a few teaspoons of honey, which not only seals in moisture, but prevents breakouts thanks to its antibacterial properties.
- Oily skin additive: For an astringent effect, mix in a splash of apple cider or cranberry juice.
- Apply: Smooth the pumpkin-y potion over your face, relax for 15 to 20 minutes, and rinse to reveal a brighter, firmer, smoother complexion.
This relaxing mask is rich in naturally occurring antioxidants, essential fatty acids, and carotenoids. Pumpkin increases the amount of nutrients in the skin and neutralizes free radicals – just in time to protect you from the harsh winter months!
