What You Need to Know About Pumpkin Face Masks
While pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin pie might be considered indulgences, pumpkin actually packs tons of healthy benefits.
Pumpkin is a natural source of potassium, antioxidants, beta-carotene, vitamin A, and more. Some of these benefits, like the antioxidants, can be enjoyed when applied to the skin via a mask.
You’ll need fresh pumpkin to create your mask. Canned pumpkin often contains added sugar and other ingredients.
Your pumpkin doesn’t need to be freshly picked, though you should make sure that your pumpkin is still semi-solid on the sides of the inner shell. If the inside is too soft, it’s likely a sign that the pumpkin is going bad.

Soothing and Exfoliating Pumpkin Mask
Exfoliating your skin is a great way to get rid of dead, dry skin, and brighten your face. But many store-bought exfoliates are harsh and can leave your skin overly dry and irritated.
DIY masks with natural ingredients offer gentler exfoliation. This soothing and exfoliating pumpkin mask features bentonite clay and cinnamon, as well as pumpkin, to brighten and exfoliate skin.
Simple Pumpkin Face Mask
If you want to enjoy the natural benefits of pumpkin without a ton of work, this mask is for you.
You’ll need a small slice of pumpkin, one egg, and a teaspoon of honey.
Cut the pumpkin away from its skin, and cut it into small pieces. Then, run the pieces through a food processor until they are pureed. Whisk in the egg and honey, and then spread the mask onto your face.
For a boost of acne-fighting power, add in a few drops of apple cider vinegar or lemon juice.
