No matter the season, pumpkin is always a good idea. In addition to being the perfect ingredient for delicious pies and lattes, pumpkin is also great to add to face masks. It’s loaded with antioxidants and vitamins which means it effectively helps fight age spots and wrinkles all while naturally exfoliating the skin, giving you that healthy glow.

Make This DIY Pumpkin Face Mask With 3 Simple Ingredients

Whether you have pumpkin leftovers or are looking for natural skin exfoliating face masks, this recipe is just the thing. Here are the ingredients you’ll need.

  • 2 tsp of pureed pumpkin (if you don’t have leftovers, you can get the canned kind)
  • ½ tsp honey (it’s recommended to use organic honey)
  • 1 tsp organic Greek yogurt (use 2% for dry skin and fat-free for oily skin)

If you want to take your face mask to an extra level, feel free to add a teaspoon of ground turmeric to the mix. However, be careful because turmeric can easily leave stains on clothes and towels.

How to Apply the Mask

Prepare all the ingredients and mix them in a bowl. Make sure the bowl is comfortable enough to use so you can easily scoop the mask when applying it. Put on gloves (if you have any) and apply the mask to damp skin. If you’re using your bare hands be sure to wash them right after applying the mask to ensure they don’t get stained from the turmeric.

Leave it on your face for about ten minutes and then rinse well with a washcloth or muslin. You can use this pumpkin face mask once a week, but you need to prepare a new batch for each use because it doesn’t hold well if you don’t use it on the same day. If you have irritable skin, feel free to add lavender or mint essential oil to soothe it.
