Pumpkin Patch Peels

Pumpkins are good for more than pies; they are filled with antioxidants, vitamins A and C. In addition, pumpkins contain enzymes that, when applied to skin, loosen the bonds that keep dead tissue cells clinging to the surface of our skin. Pumpkin peels not only banishes dull outer cells but also delivers a burst of anti-aging and hydrating botanicals, leaving skin smooth and radiant.

Home Recipe:

Pumpkin Face Mask & Peel

Ingredients: 1 miniature pumpkin, 4 pineapple chunks, 1 tablespoon finely powdered oats, 1 tablespoon finely powdered almonds, 1 teaspoon milk, 1 teaspoon honey.

Use a very sharp knife to cut the pumpkin, and be extremely careful as the peel is very hard and you could easily cut yourself if you are not cautious! Next, use the sharp knife to core the miniature pumpkin by cutting around the stem. Remove the stem and slice the pumpkin on a cutting board, loosely following the lines on the pumpkin peel. Cut about 6-8 pieces. Place pumpkin pieces (including seeds and strings) in a microwave safe dish with about 1/4 cup of water.

Microwave for about 2 minutes, or until the flesh is soft. Remove from microwave and cool for a few minutes. Cut pumpkin peel from around flesh and discard peel. Place pumpkin flesh, seeds and strings into a small food processor with pineapple and process for about a minute until smooth. Add oats, almonds, milk and honey in that order, processing a bit after each. The texture of Pumpkin Face Mask & Peel should be rich and smooth, and just slightly grainy from the almonds. To use, apply a layer to clean and toned face and neck skin. Sit back and rest for 15 minutes. Rinse well with warm water and follow with moisturizer
