Pumpkin Fig Face Mask

If you’re using fresh pumpkin for cooking and baking–or even if you’re using canned pumpkin–save a bit for some DIY beauty tricks. Full of vitamins and exfoliating enzymes, pumpkin and figs are great for your face. If you have leftovers, it also works beautifully for a hand mask.

INGREDIENTS
4 tablespoon pumpkin puree
2 figs
1 teaspoon green tea
4 teaspoons cornmeal
2 teaspoons aloe vera gel
1 teaspoon jojoba oil

1. In blender, puree figs with green tea and place 2 tablespoons worth of puree in medium-sized mixing bowl. Mix in pumpkin and aloe. Stir in jojoba oil and cornmeal.

2. Apply small amount of pumpkin mask to face, avoiding the eye area. Gently massage in circular motions gently buffing skin. Leave on for 15-20 minutes. Rinse with tepid water and pat dry with soft towel.

3. Store remaining mask covered in refrigerator for up to 1 week.
