DIY Pumpkin Facials
We are still detoxing from all the Halloween candy we recently consumed and before we move on to pumpkin pies we thought it would be best to use pumpkins in our skin
Pumpkins are packed with zinc, antioxidants, and vitamins, pumpkins protect your skin from wrinkles and age spots as well as gently exfoliating for a more radiant complexion. Don’t have any pumpkins on hand? You can get in a can at Target.
- Make your base: Whisk together about 1/4 cup of pumpkin puree 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.
