- Make your base: Whisk together about 1/4 cup of pumpkin (canned is ok to use) and one egg.
- Customize: If desired, add a splash of milk, which does a beauty good, after all.
- For dry skin: Add a bit of honey, which not only acts as a humectant, but the natural sweetener provides antiseptic properties, too.
- For oily skin: For an astringent effect, mix in a splash of apple cider or cranberry juice.
- Apply: Slather the mixture on your face. Relax, read, do chores, or whatever you'd like for the next 15 to 20 minutes and rinse off.
