Pumpkin Benefits for Skin


Pumpkin has so many benefits.  It’s not just for Halloween or yummy pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving.  This amazing fruit is full of goodness for your skin. 


Pumpkin contains enzymes that help to dissolve dry skin cells.  It contains vitamin A, alpha and beta-carotenes, vitamins C, K, and E, and minerals, including magnesium, potassium, and iron.  As you can see, it’s full of goodness. 


Pumpkin for Acne

Pumpkin is great for acne skin.  Pumpkins contain zinc.  Zinc will help control the hormone level and oil production, as well as assist with healing of the skin.  It combats inflammation, reduces pore size, controls excess oil and prevents the appearance of pimples, blackheads and blemishes. 


Pumpkin for Mature and Sun Damaged Skin

Pumpkin is perfect for damaged skin as well.  It is full of Vitamin C and K which help fade sun spots and age spots.  It is a potent antioxidant-you know, those little skin soldiers I talk about constantly that combat age accelerating free radicals!   The molecular structure of pumpkin is small and can penetrate deeper into the skin when used topically. It works amazingly well for treating a dull complexion, aging skin and pigmentation.


Raw Honey is crazy good for your skin!  Honey is naturally antibacterial.  It works well for people experiencing acne.  Honey, like pumpkin is full of antioxidants!  It is very moisturizing and great for sensitive skin.  Honey actually opens the pores and helps clean the dirt out! 


Vitamin E is very nourishing and moisturizing to your skin.  It repairs and renews damaged skin.  It also can increase circulation!


Homemade Pumpkin Mask
Serves: Makes 1 application
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin, (Canned like THIS will work, too!)
  • 1 teaspoon raw honey (Find it HERE)
  • optional: 1 teaspoon Vitamin E (Find quality, non-GMO, natural Vitamin E soft gel capsules HERE)

**If you are acne prone or excessively oily, below is a better recipe for you**
  1. Using a food processor or blender, process all ingredients together until smooth and apply to skin.
  2. Leave on skin for 15 minutes.
  3. Rinse with cool water.


Yep, it’s orange!  Don’t worry, it won’t dye your skin! 
Make a big batch of  Homemade Pumpkin Masks at one time and freeze for future use! 


If you’re like me and you dislike waste, use the whole can or pumpkin for future masks! I used a 15 ounce can of organic pumpkin puree and 3/4 cup of raw honey. I opted to not add my Vitamin E until I thaw my cube, mainly because I wanted to keep the Vitamin E as fresh as possible. Add to an ice cube tray and freeze. Each cube is one application! Store in freezer for up to 3 months!



***BONUS-One cube was too much for my skin but not enough for another application so I added 1 tsp. of cane sugar and gave myself an exfoliation after removing my mask!*** 

 Enjoy this homemade pumpkin mask all year long-Nature holds the secrets to true beauty-I believe that more everyday.  You don’t have to spend 100’s of dollars to do something good for your skin.  It’s just not that hard!

    How often would you use this mask? One a week, maybe?

    I am wondering how often to do the mask, as well. How often? Three times per week?

    Why would cook the pumpkin? I wonder if raw would be even better…

    Hi, Kelly, I have been using all your recipes for face oils the past two years since I found your site, and most recently your sugar lemon oil scrub, which is great. I just turned 54 and my skin is pretty good, except now I’ve developed lots of milia I was told they are on my forehead. I can’t get rid of them. Do you have any recommendations to get rid of them? I have tried Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda and it does not work. I have tried many other natural remedies. Thanks so much. I love all your natural recipes. They are wonderful. Keep them coming.
