Fall is finally here, and that means spiced lattes, a new season of Scandal, and time to rejuvenate and recover from summertime festivities. Let’s usher in the season of relaxation and treat ourselves to an ultra lux, moisturizing DIY face treatment! Spoil yourself! You deserve it.
The choice ingredient in our fav Fall Masque is the flawless, “Beyonce of the Squash world”- Pumpkin! Pumpkin is not just delicious in our holiday desserts, but it’s packed with skin nourishing goodies like wrinkle-kicking vitamins A, C, E- and a heap of beta carotene, known by facialists for bestowing luminous skin. Plus this gourd is loaded with antioxidants- the key to toning red puffiness after an all night “How to get Olivia Pope’s look for less” Youtube binge (we’ve all been there, lovelies!).
This easy, 3 ingredient, all natural DIY masque, smells amazing, pampers the pores- and will have your girlfriends asking what fancy spa gave you that rich fall glow! Check your pantry for insta-supplies or grab the ingredients at your local grocer, in the produce section.
2 Tbsp organic pumpkin puree, canned- or 1 small pumpkin blended
1/2 tsp organic honey- (raw Honey, preferred)
1/2 tsp unsweetened Almond Milk
Step One: Mix ingredients together, until well blended. Masque should be the consistency of yogurt, with a creamy orange color. If using fresh pumpkin, strain out any large pieces before mixing.
Step Two: Prep your face for application. Remove all makeup, and lightly exfoliate with your favorite scrub (we like, St. Ives Gentle Apricot Scrub)
Step Three: Using makeup brush, or your clean hands, apply the masque to your face- being extra careful to avoid applying to your eyes.
Step Four: Allow masque to sit for 20 minutes, while you catch up on your beauty tidbits on NapturalNicole.com
Step Five: With a washcloth and warm water, carefully wipe the mask from your face, and rinse with warm water. No cleanser is needed, but always apply a high quality moisturizer.
