Oh Pumpkin! : Homemade Pumpkin Enzyme Mask.

Fall. Everywhere you look there are different variations of the pumpkin around you. From home fragrance to lattes and baked treats. There is no better time to celebrate the Pumpkin in beauty than now!

Pumpkins are rich in Beta Carotene, Vitamins A, C and E which are strong anti-oxidants that assist in fighting free-radical damage that lead to premature aging. Vitamin A also increases cell turnover and stimulates your skin metabolism, giving you fresh, vibrant, youthful skin. Vitamin C is a natural brightener, lightener and tightener. Supporting even skin tone and increasing collagen production. Vitamin E is a humectant and moisturizer, leaving your skin's PH level balanced and comforted. As if that was not amazing enough, the Pumpkin has one of the most amazing and powerful enzymes. The pumpkin enzyme exfoliates the skin by digesting debris and dead skin cells leaving your skin bright and smooth.

So here is one of my favorite at home Pumpkin Enzyme Masks...

Oh Pumpkin! : Homemade Pumpkin Enzyme Mask.

  • 2 Tbsp. of Pureed Pumpkin (or canned)
  • 1 Tbsp. of Plain Yogurt (..of course, being Vegan I suggest Soy Yogurt)
  • 1/2 Tsp. of Oatmeal (Optional for dry skin)
Mix all of your ingredients together and apply to clean skin, avoiding the eye area. Leave on for 15 minutes then simply rinse. Follow up with your favorite moisturizer.

Voila! Glow on ladies, glow on...
