This mask is great for removing dead skin, as the flaxseeds provide a gentle physical exfoliation while the pumpkin enzyme and lactose in the yogurt offer a chemical exfoliant. Moreover, honey adds hydration… and a bit of sweetness (we dare you not to eat the leftovers!).
Pumpkin Pie Mask
- 1/4 cup full-fat Greek yogurt
- 1 tablespoon raw honey
- 1/4 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin mix)
- 1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds or flax meal
In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt and honey. Once the honey if fully incorporated, add in the pumpkin puree and stir in the flaxseed mixture. Apply with your fingers and leave on until you feel it drying. This recipe makes a couple uses, so feel free to store the remaining in the fridge for up to one week.
