Homemade Pumpkin Face Mask
Pairing pumpkin with the healing properties of raw honey and wondrous turmeric makes this pumpkin face mask a total power house for your face.
Pumpkin is good for so many things, on and off the table! This seasonal fruit is naturally loaded with vitamin A to smooth, vitamin C and antioxidants, all of which can help clear and brighten your skin. The enzymes found in pumpkin will help soften your face by removing dry and dead skin skin cells.
I left this mask on for about 15 minutes and did not experience any discomfort. If you have sensitive skin, or even if not, and start to feel uncomfortable with the mask, remove right away with cool water and pat dry. Some people are really sensitive to the enzymes in pumpkin when its applied to their skin so work slowly with this mask. Trying a small amount of the mask on your wrist ahead of time is a great way to gauge how sensitive or not your skin might be.
NOTE: Something to keep in mind with turmeric is that it can temporarily leave your skin tinted yellow, even just a little bit and when mixed with other ingredients. I’ve always had the best luck removing all of the yellow coloring when using a wash cloth. It takes an extra rinse or possibly two, but it will come off. The same might not be said for the yellow coming out of the wash cloth though, so do make sure to choose one that you don’t care as much about anymore.
Hope you love this easy pumpkin face mask recipe!
