  7. DIY Pumpkin Face Masque

Give yourself some pampering with a DIY Pumpkin Face Masque, listen to relaxing music, and relax with a mug of herbal tea!

Pumpkin is chock full of vitamins and antioxidants that are good for your skin. Pumpkin increases the production of collagen, which further improves the tone and elasticity of skin, and helps fight damage to your skin as well as wrinkles.
It also has fruit enzymes that help naturally exfoliate dead skin cells.
What’s not to love about pumpkin?

You can begin with a fresh pumpkin from the garden or farmer’s market if you want. If time is an issue, a can of cooked pumpkin will work just as well. Please make sure that it is NOT pumpkin pie filling. You need 100% pure pumpkin with no additives. Organic is always best to avoid pesticides and chemicals.

For this DIY face mask, you should use fresh cooked organic pumpkin for the most benefits for your skin. You can use organic canned pumpkin  if you absolutely don’t have fresh, but you’ll see more benefits from fresh. But, please do not use pumpkin pie filling which is not the same thing. Pie filling is loaded with sugar and won’t help your skin.

Dr. Helene’s DIY Pumpkin Face Masque couldn’t be simpler to make.
Just mix all of the ingredients together and apply it to your face and neck.
**NOTE: Do not use this masque if you are allergic to any of the recipe ingredients.


  • 1/4 cup cooked, organic pumpkin puree (fresh cooked or unsweetened organic canned pumpkin)
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon rolled oats


  1. Whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl until combined.
  2. Use your fingers or a makeup brush to spread the face mask in an even layer all over your face (avoiding your eyes).
  3. Wait for 5-10 minutes
  4. Rinse face with warm water and pat dry with a towel.

That’s all there is to it.
Relax and enjoy!
