At Home Spa Treatment: Pumpkin Mask

Looking for a way to chill out this weekend? Why not treat yourself to an at home spa treatment using the most celebrated squash of the season, the pumpkin? A little facial may be just the thing to keep you from feeling like this jack-o-lantern!

Not only do pumpkins make tasty pies, their flesh contains many vitamins and minerals that are beneficial for your skin. It is high in vitamin A, which promotes skin healing, and vitamin C, which is an antioxidant. The flesh is also high in the mineral zinc, which supports collagen the support structure of the skin.

Here is a simple recipe for a pumpkin pie mask that I found on Annie's Care 2.

What you need:
2 teaspoons cooked or canned pumpkin, pureed
1/2 teaspoon honey
1/4 teaspoon milk or soy milk

What you do:

  1. Combine all the ingredients together in a small bowl.
  2. Apply mask to clean, face avoiding the eye area.
  3. Rest and relax for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Rinse with warm water and apply the appropriate moisturizer for your skin type.

Check out Annie's Care 2 for additional variations for different skin types. If you feel like giving yourself a facial, but just don't feel like making your own, my gal Bella has some pumpkin products for you to try.
