Pumpkin Face mask

So its fall and what better way to celebrate than with a pumpkin face mask! Now I Have A TON of DIY "recipes" if you will and I thought I would share them with you. I am new to this whole blogging thing and have never been one for writing ......or spelling for that matter so bare with me as I do this haha :)

Pumpkin Face mask Recipe
1/2 cup pumpkin ( make sure its not pumpkin pie filling you don't want the added sugars)
1 teaspoon honey
1 small egg
For oily skin add 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
for dry to combination skin add 1 teaspoon almond milk

The reason why I love the mask so much is because it is moisturizing and as we all know fall and winter can be a very drying time of year!!

add your ingredients all in a bowl and mix, mix, mix....... until........

you get this!

It should be a nice smooth consistency. The way i like to apply this is with a foundation brush or a cosmetic sponge. Let this set on your face for about 15 to 20 minutes then rinse with warm water and moisturize as normal! I hope you all enjoy this and let me know if you want more DIY videos I have a ton!!
The Benefits of the mask
1. pumpkin is rich in antioxidants and natural exfoliating acids
2. the egg will help to brighten and tighten the skin
3.honey has natural anti microbial properties
4. honey also helps fight against damage cause by UV rays
5. honey also helps retain water in the skin aiding the pumpkin in the moisturizing
6. too many more too list!!! i seriously could go on for days why this is so beneficial!
Have a beautiful day <3
