Get brighter, smoother skin with this DIY pumpkin enzyme face mask. This mask is full of enzymes, AHA’s, and antioxidants that will make your skin glow!
October is only a few days away. I guess that is why I have been obsessed with all things pumpkin lately.
I recently shared my favorite DIY pumpkin spice body scrub and I am super excited to share this DIY pumpkin enzyme face mask with you today.
I was inspired to make this DIY pumpkin enzyme face mask by a pumpkin enzyme mask I used to buy from Sephora.

I used to love the pumpkin enzyme mask from Peter Thomas Roth. But once I started ditching my chemical filled beauty products, it had to go.
Although, it does contain some natural ingredients it also contains a long list of some not so good ingredients.
Plus, it costs around $60 which I can’t believe I used to be okay with spending on a face mask.
Since I’ve been making many of my own skin care DIY’s, I’ve learned you don’t need to spend a lot to create a high quality product that works great!

The enzymes and AHA’s (alpha hydroxy acids) in this mask help to smooth and brighten the skin. This mask all contains vitamin A and C which helps to soften the skin and fight wrinkles.

To make this pumpkin face mask you’ll need a small jar that is about 2 ounces and also the ingredients below.
Pureed pumpkin from a fresh pumpkin is best if you can get it. Otherwise, pure, 100% organic, pumpkin in a can will do.
Pumpkin is what makes this mask so beneficial to the skin. It contains the enzymes, AHA’s, and antioxidants that help to brighten, smooth, and soften the skin.
Manuka honey is a type of honey native to New Zealand. It is very high in antibacterial properties which sets it apart from traditional honey.
The antimicrobial and antibacterial properties in Manuka honey can help fight acne.
Manuka honey also contains anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce redness and inflammation associated with acne.
Fresh Lemon Juice
Lemon can reduce dark spots and acne scars. It is also a natural astringent and can help reduce inflammation and fight acne.
Lemon juice is extremely acidic and can irritate your skin. That is why I use very little in this face mask recipe.
If you have extremely sensitive skin you might want to leave out the lemon.
