DIY PUMPKIN FACE MASK
2 Tbsp pumpkin puree (simply boil up 100gms of Pumpkin cut into cubes and mash once soft)
1/2 tsp organic hone
½ tsp xtra virgin olive oil or even better try a magical golden oil
1/2 tsp milk (soy, almond or dairy)
1: Start with clean skin. Remove all makeup and wash your face with your regular cleanser. Try using the mildest soap on earth.
2: Combine pumpkin puree, honey, olive oil and milk in a small bowl and mix well.
3: Apply the mask using your fingers or a medium-sized makeup brush; avoid getting the mixture too close to the eyes. You can also apply to the neck and décolletage, but you’ll probably need to double the ingredients.
4: Allow the mask to set for about 20 minutes.
5: Gently wash off the mask with a warm, damp washcloth and follow with a moisturiser like a magical golden oil.
