I am in love with this DIY Pumpkin Face Mask. Shelley knows I love all natural face masks and she found this and sent it to me. Of course, I adapted it a bit. The natural ingredients are great for your skin. This natural face mask is so much better than store bought products because it is all natural. All you need is 5 ingredients that you most likely have in your pantry to make it. It doesn't have a long shelf life though, so it is best to make a small quantity.
To prepare simply combine the Pumpkin, Nutmeg and Cinnamon in a bowl. Add Honey and Olive Oil Blend together and then apply to your face (add more honey if you need consistency to be stickier). Allow it to sit on your face for 15 minutes and then rinse with warm water and a washcloth. Or if you are like me just hop in the shower and let it go down the drain. That is, it! If you are hosting a spa night this fall at your house for Girls Night In this is a nice make and take. Everyone can make it up and then take it home to use. If you have excess be sure to store in the refrigerator.
