My favorite holiday dessert is pumpkin pie. Pumpkin is very nourishing to the skin.
It contains powerful antioxidants as well as alpha hydroxy acids, so it sloughs off
dead skin while protecting the underlying layer and helping it retain moisture.
This is a great mask for the fall and winter months, when your skin may need
some good exfoliation and protection from the cold weather. Plus, it makes a
fun Halloween or Thanksgiving gift. Package it in a small jar with a simple bow
and a small note of thanks. It’s perishable, so store it in the refrigerator and tell
the person who receives it to do the same.
1

/4 cup canned pumpkin puree

2 tablespoons vanilla yogurt
or sour cream
1 tablespoon honey

Stir all of the ingredients together until you have a
smooth paste. Spoon the mask into a clean container
with a tight-fitting lid and store it in the refrigerator,
where it will keep for about 2 weeks.
To use, after cleansing, spread 1 tablespoon of the
mask over your face and neck, avoiding the delicate
areas around your eyes and mouth. Leave it on for
15 minutes, then rinse well with warm water and pat
your skin dry.
Yield: 3 1/2 ounces
