DIY: Homemade Mask with Pumpkin

Hey Friends !!!
Today I'm going to talk about Pumpkin (a fruit which helped Cinderella, in a unique way ) ;). 
What does Pumpkin reminds you of ?
To me as soon as I hear pumpkin. It reminds me of one vegetable which I don't like much, but my mom( love you maa) being a superb cook, somehow manages that i finish the portion of the pumpkin vegetable (without showing much tantrums) which is being served to me. LOL :P

Pumpkins are well related with the famous western holiday " The Halloween. Pumpkins are commonly carved into decorative lanterns called jack-o'-lanterns for the Halloween. 

Now coming back to the point, make skin so soft in the fall too with one of the Mother Nature's most beneficial product, the Pumpkin.
Pumpkin makes an excellent face mask ingredient for all skin types, especially dry skin or sensitive skin.
Its high in Vitamin A (skin healing)
Vitamin C (anti-oxidant)      
and Zinc 
Pumpkin soothes, moisturizes and act as a carrier, assisting the other mask ingredients to absorb deeper into the skin and intensifying the results. 
Give your skin healing mask for a healthy glow!!!

2 tsp cooked/boiled(cooled)/ canned pumpkin (pureed)
1/2 tsp honey
1/2 tsp milk/soya milk
1/4 tsp heavy whipped cream (optional- for dry skin)
1/2 tsp brown sugar (optional- exfoliates) 
1/4 cranberry or apple juice (for oily skin)

- Combine the ingredients for your facemask. Mix gently and apply to your face avoiding
   eye area.
-  Rest and relax for 10-15 mins while your pumpkin gently exfoilates, nourishes and
    conditions for your face. 
-  Rinse with warm water.
- Apply the moisturizer/ sunscreen.

Enjoy the smooth skin and stay fabulous ;)
