Thursday, Oct. 26 is National Pumpkin day. Time to dig into your kid's Jack-O-Lantern and whip up a cleansing - and nourishing pumpkin face mask.

So says South Salem resident and DIY eco-beauty guru Indie Lee .

According to Lee's blog , the pumpkin enzymes act as a gentle exfoliator that won’t strip skin with harsh irritants. It's also loaded with vitamins A and C which promotes new cell regeneration.

Plus, reads her blog, it’ll smell just as delicious as what's in the oven.

Go to for more recipes including a mouth-watering sweet potato mask.

Indie Lee’s Glowing Pumpkin Face Mask

  • 4 tbsp. Organic Honey
  • ½ tbsp. Greek Yogurt or Avocado Oil
  • 1 drop of Sandalwood Essential Oil
  • 1 drop of Carrot Seed Oil
  • Dash of Pumpkin Pie Spice (optional)


  • In a large bowl, mix all of the ingredients until well blended.
  • Cover the mask and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
