Homemade Face Mask
Pumpkin Eye Pie Treatment
- 1 cup of pumpkin, cubed
- 2 slices of pumpkin (about 2"X1" so they will fit comfortably over the eye area)
- 2 green tea bags
- 1 cup coconut milk
Simmer all ingredients together over low heat until soft. The pumpkin slices will soften rather quickly so remove them first, so they don't fall apart!
Continue to simmer remaining ingredients until completely mushy. Squeeze out tea bags into mixture and discard. Mash everything until smooth and creamy.
Let cool slightly before applying to all areas of the face and neck, avoiding the immediate eye area (reserve remaining mixture).
- For the eye treatment, place pumpkin slices over the eyes and relax for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse well with warm water.
- For homemade face mask treatment, apply creamy mixture in circular motions to skin. Let set for up to 30 minutes. Rinse well with warm water.
This recipe makes enough to also use as a scrub. (see below)
