This is the last pumpkin mask I will post this year. It has been pretty busy this holiday and we are in between our family gatherings. None the less I am here with another Facial Friday post. I love tightening masks and will continue to make them as long as I am inspired. I had different ideas for this mask but I had to work with what I had at home. This other special ingredient I wanted to try will have to wait for another post 😉 Todays mask is super simple and if you have been following along you will have all of the ingredients. Along with the pumpkin, I added sugar and spice again. The different ingredient I am incorporating is egg. I know this may be gross to some and I have been hesitant on trying it myself but I have read when researching for skin tightening face masks that egg is the best ingredient to use. So here we go! Skin Tightening Face Mask/Pumpkin mask!
Tightening Pumpkin Mask
2 Tablespoons Pumpkin Puree
1 Tablespoon Raw Cane Sugar
1 Teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
Add all of the ingredient to a blender. Blend for 1 minute.
I did not like the consistency of the mask, it was way to runny.
I decided to add 1 Tablespoon of redmond clay and whisk it in really well. Sort of like making cake batter, I whisked until there were no lumps with my mini whisk. This made a lot of mask.
When applying the mask brush on the thickest coating you can achieve. Then conjure up your best resting bitch face. The egg is going to tighten and you want to have the facial expression that will give you the least expression and wrinkles. I let this mask dry completely until it was nice and tight on my face. To remove use a warm wash cloth and make sure that cloth goes into your next load of laundry. Wouldn’t want you finding a surprise item later.
With the pumpkin and spice you will feel a slight tingle so if your skin is sensitive make sure to patch test anything you use before trying. You could also add less spice than what I did. When the mask drys and hardens it will feel super tight. Make sure the mask is not around the eye area or your lips. These parts of your skin are the thinnest and I wouldn’t want to cause more harm than good by stretching that delicate skin.
Overall, because we are letting this get so dry it is going to take some work to get off. Use a wet, warm towel. As warm as you can handle, to remove the mask. When I removed the mask I noticed my pores on my nose and around my nose seemed much cleaner. I have noticed that sometimes, even after some clay mask, the sebum occupying my pores space are still visibly occupied. The egg seem to do a great job at tightening around those little buggers and wiping away when I removed the mask. This would be great for those who do not like ripping one of those pore strips from their skin. Give it a try and let me know your thoughts.
