Ingredients Needed to Make a Pumpkin Yogurt Face Mask:
- ½ cup pure pumpkin puree
- ¼ plain Greek yogurt
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
How to Make a Pumpkin Yogurt Face Mask:
- Combine all 3 ingredients in a bowl until well blended.
- Smooth a generous amount over face and let it sit for 15-20 minutes- I usually leave mine until its completely dried. Make sure to avoid getting any in your eye since the cinnamon can burn.
- Place the remaining mixture in an airtight container and leave in the refrigerator. This recipe makes enough for 3-4 masks and will last several weeks refrigerated.
- Use once or twice a week and see how beautiful your skin looks.
Note: Skin may be pink or even slightly red after mask, this is due to the cinnamon. Some people react more than others but it usually fades in just a few minutes.

This mask completely burned my skin. It says to keep on for 15-20 minutes, but I couldn't take how much it was burning so I washed it off after only 5 minutes. My skin was so red it looked like I had been out at the beach all day with no sun screen. Heat was emanating off of my face for the next couple of hours. I should have tried it on my hand first before using, so that's my fault. I did read that cinnamon is good for acne and because it's a spice it can be an irritant on skin so use with caution.
