Pumpkin Pie Face Mask Recipe

Fall is here and pumpkin stuff is popping up everywhere! Pumpkin is full of vitamins that your skin needs including zinc, which is one of the most skin-healing minerals in nature. No matter your skin type, you can use pumpkin to keep your skin in good shape through fall and winter. Here are a few recipe options:

For sensitive skin:

1tbsp canned organic pumpkin
a dash of nutmeg

For normal skin:
1 tbsp canned organic pumpkin
a dash of nutmeg
a small dash of cinnamon
a small dash of clove

For oily skin:
add a 1/4 tsp organic unfiltered apple cider vinegar to the "normal skin" recipe

For dry skin:
add a 1/4 tsp organic pumpkin seed oil or other oil (almond, avocado, or olive) to the "normal skin" recipe

Choose the best option for your skin. Whip the listed ingredients together into a paste and smooth it onto clean skin. While very stimulating and circulation-enhancing, cinnamon can be a bit sensitizing so adjust the amounts as you see fit for your particular skin type. And of course, rinse off with tepid water if anything feels uncomfortable.

You can leave this mask on for 20 minutes or so and rinse with warm water. Follow with your usual topical regimen.

This mask leaves your skin smooth and well fed for a healthy glow without the use of chemicals or harsh exfoliators. So you can use it as often as you want!
