DIY Fall Face Masks

By Hannah Blaze

With the leaves changing colors and the temperature dropping very quickly, it is safe to say that fall is officially in full swing.  As great as fall is, I always notice that this is the time of year when my skin begins to get a bit problematic. I know this is a problem for a lot of girls, so I figured why not share some of my favorite fall themed facials? Facials are so much fun to do, especially when you do them with friends, and these recipes are great to get you all in the fall spirit!

Recipe #1:

  • 1/2 Cup Pumpkin Puree
  • 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Organic Honey
  • Dash of Cinnamon

Pumpkin is an amazing ingredient that is going to make your skin glow! Pumpkin is packed with AHA’s (alpha hydroxy acids) which will help brighten and smooth your skin, and it will even help control your oil production. It’s also packed with tons of vitamins, including Vitamin E & T, which are both great for treating and preventing acne!

Recipe #2:

  • 1 Tbsp Organic Honey
  • 1 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 Tsp Nutmeg

Cinnamon is another great ingredient that will do so much for your skin. First off, it’s an amazing exfoliant that will help smooth out any dry patches you may get from this weather. Another great benefit from cinnamon is that it has amazing anti-bacterial and fungal properties which will enhance your overall complexion! This will also aid in the treatment and prevention of acne.

Recipe #3:

  • ½ Green Apple (Peeled, Sliced, and Blended)
  • ¼ Cup Pumpkin Puree
  • 1 Tbsp Organic Honey
  • Dash of Cinnamon

Honey is one of my favorite things to put on my face when my skin is giving me a hard time. It is extremely moisturizing that, once again, is great for this time of year. Like cinnamon, honey also has antibacterial properties, which makes it perfect for fighting acne. It is also full of antioxidants that help prevent early signs of aging!
