Natural DIY Pumpkin Mask Recipe

Pumpkins are a wonderful ingredient for DIY skin care.  They are high in vitamin C to protect your skin from free radicals, which means that it can help prevent wrinkles and fine lines.

It is also high in magnesium, manganese, iron, copper, and potassium for healthy skin.  The zinc in pumpkins helps maintain collagen production and promotes cell turnover for healthier looking skin.

The B vitamins in pumpkin help improve circulation in your skin, and niacin can help treat acne.  The folate in pumpkin also improves circulation, which aids in skin cell renewal for healthier looking skin.

Carotenoids, which give pumpkin its bright orange color, can help protect your skin from UV damage and improve the texture of your skin.


¼ cup organic pumpkin puree
1 egg
2 teaspoons raw honey for dry for normal skin
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar for oily skin

This pumpkin face mask recipe is easy to make.  Simply mix the pumpkin puree and the egg until well blended.  If you have dry or normal  skin, add the honey.  For oily skin, add apple cider vinegar.
Wash your face, then spread the mask all over your face, avoiding the eye area.  Let sit for 15-20 minutes before rinsing.  Follow with a daily moisturizer.
