Do It Yourself Pumpkin Facial!

Ok. I KNOW you have pumpkins in your house this time of the year! If you’re like me, you like to use what you can while you have it. You can certainly bake the seeds for a yummy treat but what do you do with all that stringy goop that gets scooped out of the pumpkin while you’re carving it? Easy!!! You make a pumpkin facial! Pumpkin is actually pretty amazing for your skin. All of it’s natural goodness can help rebuild collagen! Whoohoo!

Carving pumpkin=fun

Smoothing wrinkles at the same time=priceless!

Here’s what you’re going to need:

  • Pumpkin guts
  • Milk
  • Honey
  • Food Processor (preferred) or Blender

Cut the top off of your pumpkin the same way you do when you’re going to carve it. Pull out all of the pumpkin “guts” and scrape the sides of the inside of your pumpkin….this concludes the “how to prep a pumpkin to be carved for Halloween” DIY! Ha! Kidding!

Now, remove the seeds as well as any large pieces of pumpkin. Once your guts have been sorted, take the remaining pumpkin (usually the stringy stuff) and add it to a food processor. Since I’m not lucky enough to own one yet, I used my blender.

Now, I had quite a bit of pumpkin so I added about 2/3 cup of milk and 2 tablespoons of honey. You can alter your measurements depending on the amount of pumpkin you have. None of these measurements have to be exact! You just want to make sure you get a little of everything in there!

Once you have your milk and honey added, hit puree! This is what your mixture should look like once it’s done…

Take a bit of the puree and apply the mask in small circles to get the circulation going.

All that’s left to do is relax! Wait about 10-15 minutes before you rinse it off with cool water!

If you have any left over, store it in the refrigerator for up to a week. Make sure you mark it ‘DO NOT EAT’ so it’s not mistaken for food! 🙂

Nothing like getting a facial after carving the pumpkin with the kids, huh? I hope you enjoy this post! I know your skin will! Thanks for reading! Please remember to like, share, tweet, and Pin this post.
