  • 1/2 cup fresh pumpkin pulp (canned is fine)
  • 2 TB olive oil
  • 2 tsp almond milk (for dry or combo skin)
  • or1 tsp honey (for dry skin)
  • or2 tsp apple cider vinegar or cranberry juice (for oily skin)

Purée the fresh pumpkin pulp into a thick paste. (You can use unsweetened canned pumpkin.) Add the olive oil.

If your skin is dry, stir in a splash of omega-rich almond milk and the honey. For oilier complexions, instead stir in apple cider vinegar or cranberry juice.

Mix well. Apply the mask, leaving it on for 15 to 20 minutes, depending on your skin sensitivity. Rinse with cool water and moisturize as usual.
