Pumpkin Pie Mask/Scrub Recipe

Spread the love

Thanks to  All That Is Frugal for passing along this  informative post on the benefits of pumpkin, and the recipe for a pumpkin Mask/ Scrub.   If you would like to be a featured guest post on Look What I Made, watch for our weekly post each Tuesday called A Thrifty online craft fair, link up and you may be selected for our weekly feature post.

This mask/scrub is so great for so many reasons. Pumpkin has natural enzymes that eat away dead skin resulting in a brighter complexion that more easily absorbs moisture. The sugar and milk in this mixture also hydrate and exfoliate. There is also the added benefit of vitamin c in the pumpkin as well as it being an antioxidant to help fight free radicals. Here is what you’ll need…

2 1/2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
1/2 tsp white or brown sugar ( i prefer brown sugar because it feels a little more grainy and doesn’t dissolve as quick)
1/2 tsp milk

*If you are wanting this as more of a scrub and less of a mask then you will need to decrease your pumpkin and milk and increase your sugar to a texture that is to your liking for application.

Mix together and apply mask to face. Let sit for 15 minutes. I paper towel off some of the excess and then rinse with cool to warm water. Enjoy!

You may only want to do this twice a month or at most once a week to start to see how your skin reacts. If you are allergic to any of the following ingredients please DO NOT do this mask just in case it cases a reaction or skin irritation.
