Healthy Skin DIY: Pumpkin Pie Face Mask

Posted by

It's an inevitable outcome of whipping up pumpkin muffins or soup: There's always some unused puree. Now there's a new way you can put those leftovers to work—for your skin.

Pumpkin's antioxidants, such as vitamins A, C, and E, can remedy free radical damage to the skin while softening it, says Marianne Zullas, skincare expert and owner of MZ Skincare in Brookline, Massachusetts. To reap these benefits, try her at-home face mask recipe:

Pumpkin Pie Face Mask

2 teaspoons pureed pumpkin (cooked or canned)
1/2 teaspoon honey
1/4 teaspoon milk

Directions:

1. Mix together all of the ingredients into a paste. (Click here for instructions on how to make fresh pumpkin puree.)
2.  Apply this paste onto freshly cleaned skin. Let it dry for 15 to 20 minutes, then rinse off.
