We seem to have a plethroa of pumpkins still floating around our house, and I have been debating what to do with them all.  As fate has it, I stumbled across this recipe for a pumpkin face mask and cannot wait to try this! If you are facing the same dilemma and want to give your skin a natural glow- here is a quick and healthy fix!

Beauty expert Indie Lee concocted two face mask recipes that combine fall’s most-loved ingredient (which is high in zinc and vitamins A and C), oil, and whole milk for a moisturizing brew.

Hydrating Pumpkin and Jojoba Oil Face Mask

1 sm. pumpkin
1 tbsp. jojoba oil

1. Remove rind. Cut pumpkin into ten cubes. Boil cubes in water for 10 minutes.

2. Drain and mash, then cool completely.

3. Combine 2 tbsp. mashed pumpkin with 1 tbsp. oil. Mix well.

4. Apply to face for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water.


Soothing Pumpkin and Milk Mask

1 sm. pumpkin
1 c. whole milk
½ c. mineral water

1. Peel and halve the pumpkin.

2. Over low heat, cook one half in milk for 30 minutes. Allow to cool, then mash evenly.

3. Cover face and decolletage with mask and relax for 20 minutes.

4. Rinse with leftover warm milk for a soft glow. Rinse a second time with mineral water.

Thanks so much for passing this along Daily Candy!!
