DIY Pumpkin Face Mask
It’s my favorite time of year! It’s time for the temperature to (slowly) drop and my pumpkin spice dreams to come true. Details below the video!
Pumpkin (the real stuff; not the artificial flavoring) has amazing health benefits, too. Pumpkin is full of vitamin A, C and Zinc. You can, of course, consume pumpkin in order to benefit from these powerful nutrients. However, I want to show you a fun way to use pumpkin puree to create a DIY face mask with skin benefiting ingredients.
Here’s how your skin could benefit from a pumpkin face mask:
· Vitamin A: Vitamin A is a nutrient that supports the skin (as well as other organs). Beta carotene is the specific type of vitamin A carotenoid that’s found in pumpkin. This nutrient can help soothe and soften the skin.
· Vitamin C: Vitamin C is a must have of any skin regimen. Not only is it a powerful antioxidant, but it can also help to brighten your skin. (Spoiler Alert: My skin appeared brighter after applying this mask).
· Zinc: Zinc has slowly become one of my favorite skincare ingredients. As someone that’s prone to breakouts, zinc has become a must-have component in my skincare routine. Pumpkin is packed with zinc and when applied to the skin it can help soothe, tone and fight clogged pores.
I could geek out about all of the lovely, skin benefiting nutrients in pumpkin for a long time. What I shared above is just the tip of the iceberg. I’m sure by now you can clearly see why I think pumpkin is the perfect DIY face mask ingredient for this time of year.
This recipe also features Three Ship’s Soothe Rosehip Vitamin C Clay Mask. I’ve partnered with Three Ships in the past and I love this mask. You can create the mask by using bentonite clay or omit it altogether. However, I love how the clay helps soften the skin and treats the pores.
Now, for the recipe!
