Fall is here and that means all things pumpkin, even for your skin. Pumpkin is packed with antioxidants, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and many minerals that can benefit every skin type. The vitamins A and C found in pumpkin are thought to slow the aging process. Vitamin C also helps to firm, smooth and fades brown spots.
As it begins to get cooler the air gets drier and so does your skin. Pumpkin moisturizes your skin helping to return that healthy glow.
There are professional pumpkin skincare products available for purchase but why not make your own? Try this DIY pumpkin mask.
2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
½ teaspoon honey
½ teaspoon milk
Combine ingredients and spread on clean face. After 20 minutes gently wash off the mask with a warm wash cloth and apply your favorite moisturizer.
Our tip: remember pumpkin is perishable and won’t last long. Store your pumpkin mask in a tight container in the refrigerator.
