It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!
It's a cold day here in Northern Texas, which has me feelin' really fall-ish. Here's another receipe to help your skin during the seasonal transition:
Pumpkin & Papaya Facial Mask
2/3 c fresh papaya, mashed
15 oz can of pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling, even though it sounds yummy!)
1 egg, beaten
Cut papaya in half and scoop out the seeds. Scoop out the fruit and mash it well. Beat the egg until it is frothy. Add egg to papaya. Add pumpkin and whip. (This can be done by hand, in a blender or in a food processor.) Apply mask to face. Leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse with tepid water.
Got any other home beauty remedies using the great pumpkin? Let me know.
