Throughout the year, I like to prepare a fresh Pumpkin Facial Masque, by mixing the following together.
•1/8 cup cooked pumpkin pulp, cooled
•1 tbsp ground oats
•Pinch of nutmeg
Mix all ingredients together to form a paste, sometimes, I’ll add a touch of water or apple cider for a thinner consistency. Apply with fingers in a circular motion to face and neck, leave on for 5-8 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water, gently pat dry. Mix ingredients just prior to using and discard any leftovers.
Pumpkin is a rich source of exfoliating enzymes, antioxidants, beta-carotene, vitamins and minerals, naturally beneficial for skincare.
Pumpkins are more than food, they are memories, beautiful and whimsical decorating touches, good times and just about every part of them can be used to care for our mind, body and spirit.
