Pumpkin Cleanser & Mask

Happy October!!

For those that have dry skin, Fall and Winter months can be very tough on the skin.  Here is a recipe that will cleanse the skin without drying you out and moisturizer.

Since it's October,, I thought it would be nice to use Pumpkin recipes.

Pumpkin Cleanser
  • 1 Pumpkin Wedge
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Cup Water
  • Peel and shred pumpkin wedge
  • Bring 1 cup of water, pumpkin and salt to a boil
  • Reduce heat and let simmer until pumpkin is soft
  • Drain
  • Puree mix in blender until creamy
  • Allow to Cool
Keep Refrigerated

Pumpkin Mask

  • Pumpkin Wedge
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • Chop pumpkin into 10 cubes
  • Boil pumpkin cubes for 10 minutes
  • Drain and mash cubes and then allow to cool
  • Add two tablespoons of mashed pumpkin and tablespoon of Olive Oil and Mix
  • Apply to face an neck and let sit for 20 minutes.  Rinse with warm water and apply moisturizer.
Refrigerate Leftovers!
