DIY Face Mask
Pumpkins are rich in Vitamins A and C and contain various enzymes that help nourish and brighten the skin making them perfect to use in facials. Below is an easy recipe to create your own pumpkin face mask at home.
*Mix one can of pureed pumpkin in a bowl
*Stir in a cup of plain yogurt, 4-5 tablespoons of honey and a 1/4 teaspoon olive oil
*Wash face and while face is still moist apply the mask using your fingers in an upward motion
*Let sit for no more than 10 minutes and remove with warm water and washcloth
*There will be leftover mask so seal it in a closed Tupperware container or have a girls’ spa night!

Blemish Treatment
Pumpkin contains the acne fighting vitamins E and T (aka Torulitine) and can aid in reducing pore size and preventing the appearance of pimples, blackheads and blemishes. Cut open a fresh pumpkin and slice it you would a cantaloupe. Rub the fleshy side against your face after cleansing twice a day for healthier looking skin.

Moisturizer
Natural enzymes found in pumpkins are great for hydrating, soothing and softening dry, cracked hands and feet. Keep the fleshy/stringy pumpkin parts you pull out when carving and work a small amount into your hands (as if you’re washing your hands) and rinse with warm water. Your hands will instantly be smooth and soft.
*TIP: Mix 2 tablespoons of pumpkin puree in a small bowl with 2 tablespoons of Vaseline and apply to extra dry heels and cover with socks overnight for an ultimate moisturizing treatment.
