DIY Recipe: Pumpkin Face Mask
Pumpkin is rich in zinc, which helps purify oily, blemished complexions. Pumpkin enzymes also work to gently exfoliate the skin without any abrasive particles.
What You'll Need:
2 tablespoons raw pumpkin, (finely grated), 1 egg white, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, 1 teaspoon tomato juice, (or 1/2 teaspoon tomato puree).
Method and Application:
Combine all ingredients in a bowl, stir well or blend using a stick blender. Apply the mask in a thick layer all over the cleansed face, avoiding the eye area. Leave on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse off with lukewarm water.
