I know, I know… pumpkin spice is everywhere, do we really need another pumpkin spice anything? Yes, yes we do! However, this time we’ll move away from the edible versions of pumpkin spice and instead we are going to play around with how it benefits the skin in this pumpkin spice face mask!

Maybe you have leftover pumpkins after Halloween, maybe you have left over pumpkin puree after making a pumpkin spice smoothie, or perhaps you just whipped up a nice big patch of homemade pumpkin puree and you are thinking…. what else can I use all this pumpkin puree for?!

This pumpkin spice face mask is just what the season ordered! This face mask is nice and simple, just three ingredients which (if you are pumpkin obsessed) you should already have in the kitchen!

How does pumpkin spice benefit our skin?

Pumpkin – Full of vitamins and nutrients, namely Vitamins A,C, and E. Pumpkin is also a full of enzymes which means it acts like a natural enzyme face peel! Bye bye dead skin! On top of all that, it helps brighten skin and helps collagen production!

Honey – Is a wonderful moisturizer yet at the same time it’s a gentle cleanser. It’s sort of a 2in1 deal! Honey is also anti-bacterial so it will help you fight acne. It can brighten skin and even out skin tone.

Cinnamon – Stimulates blood flow, great for acne and eczema, and has anti-aging benefits.
(Note: Cinnamon will “burn the hell off you” as I joked with my friend, when I first tried this face mask. I decreased the amount in the recipe since that first round but those with sensitive skin should leave out the cinnamon… which means your pumpkin spice face mask will then just become a pumpkin face mask. Don’t worry, it will still be a great mask!)
