DIY Pumpkin Spa Facial Recipe
For this homemade pumpkin spa facial, you’ll need two cups of pureed pumpkin (either cooked fresh or canned), four tablespoonful of honey and the same amount of unflavored yogurt, 1/3 cup of ground almonds and 1/4 teaspoon of olive oil.
Mix the ingredients well and your facial is ready! Pull back your hair and apply it to your fresh face, waiting for 5-10 minutes. After rinsing it off, apply some moisturizer. It’s best to use this facial in the evening or on a free day, when you later won’t have to use makeup on your face.
Since your pumpkin spa facial will be quite much for a single time usage, you can keep it and use it again within a week.
The good thing about homemade facials is that you can easily adjust them according to your skin type. Thus, if you have oily skin, replace honey with apple cider or cranberry juice. After trying the homemade pumpkin spa facial once, you are sure to repeat it again as you see the stunning results on your face!
