Pumpkin Face Mask Recipe
Cooked pumpkin- 5 cubes
Neem leaves paste/powder – 1 Tablespoon
Curd – 1 Tablespoon
Neem is anti inflammatory and anti fungal which helps treat skin infections and mild allergies. If you have redness or irritation, this ingredient will help soothe the skin.
Neem leaves help control excess oil and thus, works to reduce breakouts. No breakouts means clear skin and no new acne scars. YAY !
Regular use does show visible results in skin brightening, fades acne scars and even tones the skin.
Curd – Now on to the reason why we are using curd/yogurt here.
The lactic acid here causes invisible exfoliation. In simple words, it helps remove dead skin cells without any harsh scrubbing.
This reveals the younger looking skin beneath and also improves dull complexion to an extent.
Curd has astringent properties that helps prevent the formation of blackheads/whiteheads and pimples.
The alpha hydroxy acids, vitamins and minerals helps nourish, hydrate and renew your skin leaving it brighter, soft and healthy.
Zinc in curd and Neem does increase the cell turn over rate. This prevents premature fines lines and wrinkles.
The Vitamin B combination in curd also helps delay the signs of ageing by promoting collagen production.
So all of these work together to give you healthy glowing younger looking skin.
I hope you would give this face pack a try.
If you have super oily skin, You could add additional ingredients like clay or gram flour to remove excess sebum. But then, you can only use this face pack three times a week.
