My amazingly talented cousin Claire, who’s behind all my videos, is the master-mind behind The Kitchy Kitchen. It’s filled with wonderful recipes, beautiful photography, and now a collaboration with yours truly. I’m so excited to be a part of her monthly beauty series and this month I did a DIY Pumpkin Coconut Almond Face Mask. To see the article as well as tons of great recipes and everything food, check it out HERE and read below!
This face mask is chocked full vitamins, will help clear your skin, and keeps you moisturized at the same time. Pumpkin is an amazing skin care ingredient, containing vitamins A, C, antioxidants, alpha-hydroxy acids, anti-inflammatory benefits, among much more. The enzymes and amino acids in milk help smooth skin, and moisturize, while the honey rejuvenates and keeps acne at bay. The cinnamon brings blood and nutrients to the surface, making it excellent for diminishing fine lines, while almonds act as an exfoliant and are soothing for chapped skin. This is a face mask you’ll want to use year ’round and tastes uh-mazing.
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup whole milk
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons almonds (grind in food processor until powdery)
* Note: You can eliminate any one of these ingredients if you have an allergy.
Mix all ingredients together to form a paste and apply to skin using fingers. Leave on for 30 minutes and then wash off. (You can also change the coarseness of the almonds to make this more of a scrub.)
