Natural beauty tip: homemade pumpkin face mask
With Halloween just around the corner, it's almost time to hit the pumpkin patch. And as most know, a pumpkin can be much more than just carved decor for the doorstep.
Toast or roast the pumpkin seeds, make pumpkin pie, and now... a pumpkin facial. Get your pumpkin faces on without damaging the face with this homemade mask by Erika Katz, author of "Bonding over Beauty, A Mother-Daughter Beauty Guide to Foster Self-Esteem."
Pumpkin Face Mask
2 tsp canned pureed pumpkin
1/2 tsp honey
1/4 tsp heavy whipping cream
Mix all ingredients and apply to face. Leave on for 10 min and rinse.
"Pumpkin is rich in vitamin A, which is very healing to the skin and is essential to maintain and repair skin tissue. It also helps reduce lines and wrinkles. Honey is a humectant. The cream moisturizes and helps flaky skin," writes Katz.
