It’s fall everyone, and everything pumpkin is in season. I enjoy all things pumpkin. Pumpkin spice latte, pumpkin-flavored pancakes, pumpkin ice cream, and a really good pumpkin enzyme mask. Here is a recipe for a pumpkin enzyme mask that is sure to leave you glowing!
Here’s what you need:
¼ cup of pumpkin puree
1 tbsp of greek yogurt.
1 tbsp of raw honey
¼ tsp of cinnamon (optional)
Use half of a small pumpkin cut into cubes. Steam the pumpkin until it’s soft. Blend all ingredients together and it’s ready for use. If you have sensitive skin leave out the cinnamon. The cinnamon works great at plumping your skin because it promotes blood circulation. Once applied, leave on for 20 min. Rinse off with warm water.
Benefits of the ingredients:
Pumpkin is filled with vitamin A which is great for stimulating collagen while the pumpkin enzyme helps to exfoliate the top layer of your skin.
Greek yogurt has lactic acid which also aids with exfoliation and is super hydrating. Raw honey is antibacterial and it helps heal breakouts while leaving your skin hydrated.
After removing the mask apply your favorite moisturizer or your VilOt skin balm. Your skin will have a beautiful glow and feel hydrated and supple. Any leftover mask can be refrigerated for 1-2 weeks. Please leave a comment if you enjoyed the pumpkin enzyme mask. If you have your own recipe please feel free to share. I’d love to give it a try.
Enjoy pumpkin lovers,
