It’s official, fall is here. And, you know what that makes me think of? Pumpkin everything, of course! From pumpkin bread to pumpkin pie and – well, we can’t leave out the Pumpkin Latte – it’s all pumpkin, all the time and I love it. But, what about pumpkin for beauty?

Turns out pumpkin is absolutely amazing for your skin, working as a natural exfoliant and full of vitamins and minerals that your skin will love. It’s an emollient too, meaning – it moisturizing effects are exactly what you need in this chilly fall weather. So how can you incorporate it into your beauty routine? Easy – here’s two DIY Pumpkin beauty masks to get you started right away.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 small slice of pumpkin
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon of organic honey
  • A few drops of apple-cider vinegar or lemon juice

Whether your pumpkin is leftover Halloween decor or fresh from the patch, start by dicing up a small slice and blend it in a food processor until smooth. (“Stay away from canned stuff because all the nutrients will be gone,” warns Urena.) Whisk a half cup of your freshly made puree together with the egg, honey, and the vinegar or lemon juice. (She recommends using apple-cider vinegar for detoxifying skin and reducing inflammation, or lemon for brightening skin and reducing excess oil.) Apply your freshly made, fall-appropriate face mask to clean skin, spreading it all over your face, neck, and chest. Relax for 15 to 20 minutes, then rinse off.

Make your base: Whisk together about 1/4 cup of pumpkin and one whole egg. The yolk adds nourishment while the white provides a subtle tightening effect to sagging skin.

Dry skin additive: Add a few teaspoons of honey, which not only seals in moisture, but prevents breakouts thanks to its antibacterial properties.

Oily skin additive: For an astringent effect, mix in a splash of apple cider or cranberry juice.

Apply: Smooth the pumpkin-y potion over your face, relax for 15 to 20 minutes, and rinse to reveal a brighter, firmer, smoother complexion.

What do you think? Will make pumpkin part of your fall beauty routine?
