Papaya Pumpkin Masque


I found a fun recipe for a homemade pumpkin facial mask (and it was easy to make because it only has 3 ingredients) Pumpkin is really good for the skin. It has enzymes that will eat away dead skin cells. It works like a facial scrub without any abrasion or scrubbing. It also has lots of Vitamin A and C, and it will give your skin a healthy glow :) Click HERE for the recipe. The website recommends you test some of the mask on your hand if you have sensitive skin and I think it's a good idea. I don't have sensitive skin and I thought the mask felt really good, a little tingly. But it might feel more intense if you have sensitive skin :) And this recipe made plenty of mask for more than one person so it would be a fun thing to do for a girl's night (or go ahead and slap some on your hubby or boyfriend!) It should stay good in the fridge for about a week, too.

I'm totally going to try it. My skin has been acting up the past week. So sick...buuuut maybe the fact that I haven't been washing it before bed has something to do with it. Hmmmmm...
