Pumpkin Face

Home, Food & Body, The Dressing Room
Created by facialist Chanel Jenae of Santa Monica.
Jenae says pumpkin is loaded with natural exfoliating acids and antioxidants.
She uses pumpkin pulp in her facial peels at her salon “to brighten,
calm breakouts, and soften the appearance of fine lines and sun damage.”

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup fresh pumpkin pulp
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoon almond milk (for dry or combo skin)
  • 1 teaspoon honey (for dry skin)
  • 2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar or cranberry juice (if you have oily skin)

Preparation:

Purée the fresh pumpkin pulp into a thick paste. Add the egg (this acts as a binder). If your skin is dry, stir in a splash of omega-rich almond milk and the honey. For oilier complexions, instead stir in apple cider vinegar or cranberry juice. Mix well. Apply the mask, leaving it on for 15-20 minutes, depending on your skin sensitivity. Rinse with cool water and moisturise as usual.
Be left feeling fresh and rejuvenated!
