Pumpkin Puree Face Mask DIY

I'm always looking for natural ways to cleanse and brighten my complexion. I have Atopic Dermatitis, which causes my skin to have small dry spots from certain products. All natural is usually the way to go.

Pumpkin is full of vitamins and anti-oxidants, some of them include;
  • Alpha & Beta Carotene
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin E
  • Potassium
  • Magnesium
One of the reasons I use this mask/scrub during the chilly weather, is because the enzymes in pumpkin help dissolve dry skin cells. Also, the Alpha-Hydroxy acids help to brighten and smooth out the skin.

I personally love adding peppermint to my face masks. It gives me a great "cooling" sensation, and makes my skin feel extra clean. Use very sparingly, and adjust the measurements as needed. Essential oils are very concentrated, and the potency can cause irritation if not used in correct moderation.

Pumpkin Face Scrub Recipe


3-4 drops of essential oil (I used peppermint)
1/3 cup Ground Almond Flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar

Mix all of the ingredients, place into a sealable bowl. Keep it in the fridge, I typically use it within 5 days.

I placed everything into a hello kitty container I got from Target in the dollar bins. It was super easy to do, and I feel good knowing the ingredients in my skin care.

What's your favorite at home beauty DIY?

**Editor's Note** This face scrub is very "wet". Its best to be patted on, and scrubbed with a face cloth since the little bits of pumpkin can easily fall off. The facial scrubber helps to rub the pumpkin in while exfoliating :-)
