Pumpkins aren’t just for carving jack-o-lanterns or making pie. Turns out they’re full of natural enzymes that are great for gently dissolving dry skin cells. That’s why we’re ending spooky season with a DIY treat—an exfoliating pumpkin face mask to soften and refresh skin.
What you’ll need:
One can of Pumpkin Puree
2 TSBP of Grapeseed Oil— to soften
Grapeseed Oil is full of vitamin E which helps hydrate dry areas. It is lightweight and non-greasy too, so it maintains moisture without clogging pores.
2 TSBP of Organic Honey— to moisturize
2 TSBP of Brown Sugar— to exfoliate
Softer than regular sugars, Brown Sugar gives this mask extra exfoliating power and helps lift and remove dirt and impurities.
3-5 drops of Rosehip Oil— to brighten
Rosehip oil is a natural source of vitamins A and C that help brighten the look of skin and maintain its moisture barrier.
- Measuring spoons
- A bowl
- A face brush
What to do:
Pour your pumpkin puree into a bowl. Add in 2 TSBP of brown sugar, 2 TSBP of honey, 2 TSBP of grapeseed oil, and 3 or so drops of rosehip oil. Mix well so that your oils and honey are absorbed into the pumpkin. If you have a face brush or even a spoon you can use that to scoop the pumpkin and place it onto your face. Take caution when around eyes! Now, kick up your legs and tilt back—maybe take a selfie or two and tag us on Instagram @skyorganic.us so we can see those orange faces! After 10-15 minutes remove the mask, gently rubbing the puree and exfoliating your skin as you wash it off with warm water. How does your skin feel? Soft, right?
