Metro: Homemade Pumpkin Face Mask

Metro newsForget soups – with Halloween and half term fun approaching, Metro suggests making a face mask from leftover pumpkin pulp. 

The feature explains:

“As it turns out, pumpkin pulp could be the trick to reviving your skin in the harsh autumn weather.”

Metro asked Dr Ross Perry, founder of Cosmedics Skin Clinics and Cosmedics Beauty, to give his professional advice on how the pumpkin could be beneficial to your skin. He explained:

“There are numerous pumpkin-based beauty products on the shelves all promising to work wonders and the key ingredients derived from pumpkins are the seeds as they contain fatty acids, vitamin E, zinc, Omega 3 and antioxidants which will help fight sun damage and wrinkles whilst retaining moisture.

“The high amounts of zinc and vitamin E can will improve skin tone and help wounds heal more rapidly. Other benefits include helping to fight acne and help with skin renewal.”

The pumpkin face mask recipe involves combining 1/4 cup pumpkin puree with an egg, two teaspoons of honey and one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar (ACV). The mask should be left on for 20 minutes and then rinsing off.

Dr Perry was asked to explain how this could benefit skin this autumn. He said:

“The honey added will help to lock in the moisture and the apple cider vinegar assists in detoxing the skin and reducing any inflammation.”
