Welcome back to Make Something Sunday, where we post a new craft every week from our favorite DIY bloggers. Let's get started!
This week we are switching things up! Instead of making a craft, we have a recipe for fun, seasonal skin care. Our recipe is from Stephanie of Hello Glow. Hello Glow is a blog destination for natural wellness, nutrition, and skincare. Today we will be making Stephanie's DIY Pumpkin Pie Face Mask! October has us carving pumpkins and consuming all things pumpkin, so why not put a little on our faces too? Pumpkin has great benefits for the skin. It's packed with vitamins and minerals that help moisturize dry skin, repair sun-damage, and it helps to maintain a healthy level of oil production. Pumpkin also contains natural enzymes that break down dead skin cells, encouraging new cell growth and leaving you with a softer, brighter complexion.
You most likely have everything in your pantry for this easy recipe. You will need pumpkin puree, almond meal, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Mix the ingredients and apply to your clean, dry face. Leave on for 15-20 minutes and rinse. Voila! Fresh, glowing skin. A word of caution, cinnamon is not for sensitive skin. Always do a test patch before applying the mask all over. If you have sensitive skin, you can omit the cinnamon.
We would love to see your take on this recipe! Tag us on social media with the handles below and #makesomethingsunday and we’ll send you a code for $5 off at the shop (one per person)!
