Pumpkin Face Mask | Halloween 2016

Happy Halloween!🎃

I thought a cute little halloween post would be the best upload for this week, especially since today is halloween officially! I LOVE halloween and if it wasn't for all my school work I would have uploaded so many makeup looks, outfit ideas, etc... So after having millions of brainstorms about halloween makeup ideas and not actually having the time to sit down and carry them out, I have had to think of something unique to write about. My two younger brothers were sitting carving their pumpkins when I had a great idea to make a pumpkin facemask! I have never heard of this before and I have always been one to use 100% natural ingredients to create my own DIY face masks so this was the perfect opportunity to blog about it. 

M E T H O D :


1. The great thing about this mask is that nothing goes to waste, expect the seeds (unless you cook/fry them). My little brother actually carved this pumpkin so there was no need to waste a whole pumpkin to get a little bit of the inside for a facemask. Win - Win. 


2. Then get a handful of pumpkin and make sure that all the seeds are removed from the actual pumpkin. Put it into a small bowl and leave in the fridge for half an hour to allow it to become colder.


3. Collect ingredients. These can be alternated to whatever you have available. For example, almond yoghurt and milk can be swapped for real dairy milk/yoghurt. You will also need a blender of some kind. Here is what I used:

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 handful of pumpkin
  • A generous spoonful of honey
  • A dash of almond original milk
  • A large spoonful of alpro soy plain yoghurt 


4. Add all of the ingredients to your blender and blend until all bits have been removed and mixed together.


5. Finally pour into a small container. My recipe made enough for about 5 thin face masks. Keep refrigerated for re-use. 


BENEFITS:

  • Contains vitamins A, C, K and E as well as minerals including potassium, magnesium and iron.
  • Helps to fade sun spots and age spots.
  • Is a natural antioxidant. 
  • Contains enzymes which fight dry skin cells.
  • Honey actually helps to unclog pores and bring dirt out. Great for blemishes and spots!
So why don't you end your halloween with a pumpkin face mask to benefit your skin and it's definitely one for the occasion. Let me know in the comments if you tried this recipe!

Lots of love, Emily Xo

Have a great halloween night!
