I'm always looking for natural ways to cleanse and brighten my complexion. I have Atopic Dermatitis, which causes my skin to have small dry spots from certain products. All natural is usually the way to go.
Pumpkin is full of vitamins and anti-oxidants, some of them include;
- Alpha & Beta Carotene
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin E
I personally love adding peppermint to my face masks. It gives me a great "cooling" sensation, and makes my skin feel extra clean. Use very sparingly, and adjust the measurements as needed. Essential oils are very concentrated, and the potency can cause irritation if not used in correct moderation.
Pumpkin Face Scrub Recipe
3/4 cup pureed pumpkin
3-4 drops of essential oil (I used peppermint)
1/3 cup Ground Almond Flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
Mix all of the ingredients, place into a sealable bowl. Keep it in the fridge, I typically use it within 5 days.
I placed everything into a hello kitty container I got from Target in the dollar bins. It was super easy to do, and I feel good knowing the ingredients in my skin care.
