A few days ago, I was in the baking aisle of our local supermarket looking for ground almond. An older gentleman was picking up products from the same section, so I asked him if he knew where I could find ground almond. He told me he didn’t think the store carried them, but suggested I just buy almonds and grind them myself. He then asked if I was making something special. I told him, “A beauty treatment.” He thought that was interesting. Okay, he thought it was weird (really weird). But it seems like I’ve been spending more time in the produce and baking aisles of supermarkets on the hunt for the perfect beauty treatment more than I do at department stores and pharmacies.
I figured it was pumpkin season, so I looked up different recipes to see what was out there and easy to make. I found a fall beauty recipe (hence, the search for ground almond) that seemed to be duplicated on several sites (She Knows and Michelle Phan). It seemed simple enough to make, and after trying it once, I’m hooked. My face is soft like a baby’s bum!
Here are step-by-step instructions for making your own Pumpkin Face Mask.
