DIY Pumpkin Face Mask

Don’t throw it out, save the insides of that pumpkin! If you’re like me and love trying new face masks, then you need to try this one! Pumpkin has many amazing health benefits to get you that Halloween-glow. It contains enzymes that help to try and dissolve dry skin cells.

It contains vitamin A, alpha and beta-carotene, vitamins C, K and E, and minerals including magnesium, potassium and iron. All these health benefits of pumpkins go to waste every day in the months of October and Thanksgiving! Pumpkin is always great for acne-prone skin because pumpkins contain zinc. Zinc is extremely important in this case because it will help with the hormone level and oil production, as well as helping your skin repair itself. If you’re like me, a money saver and doesn’t like things to go to waste, here’s a way you can utilize your pumpkin innards in exchange of a healthy face!

Recipe for Homemade Pumpkin Mask:


1 tablespoon of cooked pumpkin (canned works too)

1 teaspoon of raw honey


  1. Mix and mash all ingredients together and apply to skin

  2. Leave on skin for 15-minutes

  3. Rinse with cool water and cleanser
