Pumpkin Facials

It is almost officially Fall! That meas that pumpkin flavored everything is here, including facials.    Some times mommys need a spa day.  But it is not always easy to get there.   This is a great at home facial with pumpkin as the main ingredient.  It is easy and you can whip it up with just a few ingredients.   Pumpkins are loaded with Vitamin A and enzymes that will nourish and brighten your complexion. 

For making your own pumpkin facial, you can use either fresh or canned pumpkin.

1. Grind up 12 almonds in a food processor or coffee grinder until texture is more fine than rough, but not powdery.

2. Add 1/4 cup honey and 1/8 tsp. olive oil and blend well.

3. Mix in 8 oz. of canned pumpkin puree, stirring enough to combine all ingredients.

After cleansing face and neck, smooth the facial over the skin, working away from the eyes. Leave on for 5 minutes and then rinse in the shower or with a warm water splash.
