Banana pumpkin face mask

During the autumn season, pumpkins can be great ingredients for your do-it-yourself beauty recipes.

This banana and pumpkin face mask will work wonders for your skin.

Let’s take a look at the ingredients in this organic beauty recipe.

Bananas:

They contain many skin-healthy ingredients, including potassium, which moisturizes the skin, and vitamin E, which protects from UV damage.

Pumpkins:

Like bananas, pumpkins are high in vitamin E. They are also high in vitamin A and C, which boost collagen and help soften the skin.

Coconut Oil:

Coconut oil is deeply nourishing as it contains vitamin E.

Its anti-bacterial and antiseptic properties can help with acne and pimples.

3 tbsps of pumpkin puree

1/3 of a ripe banana
