It’s the Great Pumpkin “Mask” Charlie Brown

27 Oct

Because it’s nearly Halloween and it’s also time for #SpaWeekGossip s first Spa Masquerade Ball. . . . I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite pumpkin masks with you.  Pumpkin is a popular beauty ingredient as it’s enzymes are effective exfoliators, it contains luster giving anti-oxidants and it smells divine (if not made too sickly sweet!).

Pumpkin Pie Pretty Face Mask

1/2 cup canned or mashed fresh (preferable) pumpkin

1 tsp. cinnamon (only if you’re skin is NOT sensitive)

1/2 tsp honey

1/4 tsp  soy milk

Blend and apply to face – relax for 15 mins.  Using a washcloth run under warm water and wrung til damp, gently pat away mask.

Pumpkin Italiano Hair Heaven

1/2 cup canned pumpkin

1/4 cup full fat yogurt

1 tsp Olive Oil

Blend all ingredients.  Apply from root to tip of hair.  Wrap head in a warm towel.   (Throw towel in dryer immediately before wrapping hair). Relax 30 mins.  Wash thoroughly.

No time to concoct a mask?  Luckily there’s loads of ready made pumpkin pampering pleasures to enjoy.  A few of our favorites:
