Happy Thanksgiving! Hopefully your day is full of delicious food and relaxing with family and friends. Now onto some important business. What do with all that left over pumpkin? Make a face mask and plant yourself in front of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. It will have everyone asking what your secrets are for gorgeous glowing skin!
• ¼ cup pumpkin(not the already mixed pumpkin pie filling, just plain pumpkin!)
• 1 teaspoon cinnamon
• 1 teaspoon raw honey
• 1 tablespoon buttermilk or whatever percentage milk you have lying around (for dry skin) or 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar or cranberry juice (for oily skin)
•1 egg(optional for pore tightening)
Combine the ingredients, mix well, and apply for 10-20 minutes. Rinse off with water and moisturize as usual.
*Pumpkin has enzymes that eat away at dead skin cells leaving skin soft and smooth. Cinnamon has antiseptic qualities as well as awakens and revitalizes the skin. Honey is a natural antiseptic(as is apple cider vinegar), but is also naturally hydrating. Use buttermilk for extra softening benefits. Egg is optional for skin firming and pore tightening.
