Vegan Pumpkin Face Mask?

Who say’s vegan holidays have to be all about the food? I have had this page bookmarked for at least a year now, and I still haven’t tried this pumpkin face mask. What’s wrong with me? Why haven’t I covered my face in pumpkin puree yet? I don’t know, but I plan on it the next time I open a can of pumpkin. I’ve adapted the “recipe” to include all vegan items..

Pumpkin Pie Face Mask

2 teaspoons cooked or canned pumpkin, pureed
one-half teaspoon agave nectar
one-quarter teaspoon soymilk

Optional Ingredients
For Dry Skin
one-half teaspoon brown sugar (exfoliates, moisturizes)

For Oily Skin
one-quarter teaspoon apple cider (tonic action promotes skin circulation; alpha hydroxyl acid; regulates pH).
one-quarter teaspoon cranberry juice (high in antioxidants critically important to the utilization of essential fatty acids to maintain balanced, nourished skin.)

Combine the ingredients for your facemask. Mix gently and apply to your face avoiding the eye area. Rest and relax for 10-15 minutes while your pumpkin pie facemask gently exfoliates, nourishes and conditions your face. Rinse with warm water and apply the appropriate moisturizer for your skin type.

I bet it wouldn’t be totally bad to add a pinch of pumpkin pie spice to this. It may not add any skincare benefits, but it sure would smell good.

Oh, and you could probably just lick this off your face rather than rinsing it.
