Directions

1. Whisk together the egg and pumpkin puree.

2. If you have oily skin, add just a few splashes of cranberry juice or cider as an astringent. If your skin is dry, add a few teaspoons of honey. The antibacterial properties of honey will help prevent breakouts. Honey will also help keep your skin moist.

3. Apply the mixture to your face and let sit 15-20. Rinse.

If you don’t happen to have a fresh pumpkin around, you can conveniently purchase canned pumpkin puree from the store.
