Pumpkin isn’t just good for you to eat. It’s great for your skin, too! Packed with enzymes, vitamins and anti-aging properties, calabaza can rejuvenate your skin and restore its glow. Oasis, a NYC day spa, offers a sugar scrub and pumpkin wrap seasonal special: 90-minutes for $150 (oasisdayspanyc.com).
But if a home-cooked mask is more your thing, than experiment with this DIY recipe.
2 teaspoons of mashed pumpkin (canned or fresh)
1/2 teaspoon of honey
1/4 teaspoon of milk or soymilk
If you have dry skin, add 1/4 teaspoon of heavy whipping cream or 1/2 teaspoon of brown sugar. If you have oily skin, add either 1/4 teaspoon of apple cider or 1/4 teaspoon of cranberry juice.
Mix all ingredients together. Apply to face for 10-15 minutes. Rinse with warm water over the kitchen sink, so you don’t clog your bathroom sink. Pat dry and apply your favorite moisturizer.
