Life has been busy lately. Some things I can share, some I can’t – yet. I’ve also been going through some health issues that have been negatively affecting my skin. I have so many good natural skin remedies for troubled skin but since it’s fall I decided to spice things up – get it – with a pumpkin spice FACE mask. Oh, and fun fact – I still haven’t had a pumpkin spiced latte yet. You can tell me in the comments if I am seriously missing out.
DIY Pumpkin Spice Face Mask
Otherwise, one thing I can share is that my husband have been in the process of buying a house. And what a process that is! Plus, here in the D.C. area once you find a house you even sort of like you have to put a bid on it immediately, or it will be gone in a few days. Thankfully, we’re nearing the end of that process and I’ll be back with an update on that.
But we’re here to talk about skincare, not houses. So let me tell you about my new favorite fall themed mask.
Pumpkin Spice Face Mask Ingredients:
- 1 TBS pumpkin puree
- 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
- Sprinkle of cinnamon (avoid if you have sensitive skin)
- 1 teaspoon raw honey
Before we get to making it, let’s talk about those ingredients, shall we?
PUMPKIN – Pumpkin is full of Vitamin C (to fight wrinkles), Vitamin A (boosts collagen production), zinc, and enzymes. Essentially it works the same as those awesome alpha-hydroxy treatments you spent a lot of money on at Sephora. Don’t worry, I’m guilty too. But this is a heck of a lot cheaper!
HONEY – Honey cleansers skin, is full of antibacterial properties to fight acne, and helps brighten and soften your skin
TURMERIC – This is one powerful spice. You’re going to want to read this post on a DIY Turmeric Mask to learn about all its benefits.
CINNAMON – Kills bacteria that causes acne. Woohoo.
- In a small bowl mix together all the ingredients. You might want to heat up the honey for a few seconds in the microwave or on the stove if it is a little hard.
- Apply to your face with your fingers or a small brush.
- Leave on for 10-15 minutes.
- Wash off with cool water.
- Follow up with a good natural moisturizer.
