Pumpkin exfoliating mask, how to prepare it
To have a natural and home remedy, pumpkin is always an ingredient that is worth trying. Not only is it perfect in this winter period for a healthy diet rich in beneficial nutrients but it can also become a true beauty ally !
Making a perfect pumpkin-based moisturizing and exfoliating mask is quick and easy. The necessary ingredients are: 3 tablespoons of pumpkin puree , 1 spoon of yogurt and 1 spoon of brown sugar. Pour the puree, obtained by whipping the raw pumpkin into chunks , together with the yogurt and sugar.
Mix well until the three ingredients are mixed and then apply on your face , washed and well removed, with a spatula or a special brush. Massage with your fingertips as an exfoliating scrub for about 2 minutes and then leave on for another 15. Once the necessary time has elapsed, just rinse carefully to have a smoother, healthier and silky skin!
What to apply after the pumpkin treatment
Just like the corn starch face mask, even the pumpkin one, once rinsed, implies the application of some specific products . For those who tend to have oily or combination skin, the application of a special serum will be necessary. While those with drier or more mature skin will have to apply a moisturizer or a moisturizing oil for delicate skin!
