Thanksgiving Prep Week: DIY Pumpkin Face Mask

Greenista Girl Neha

Have some left over Pumpkin from Halloween? No worries, we can show you how to put that soft orange squash to good use. Great for centerpiece décor, yummy in pies, and even better on your skin! Check out this super easy (just two ingredients), pumpkin face mask. The egg helps bind the mask together while nourishing and lifting the skin!

DIY Pumpkin Face Mask

  • 1 small organic pumpkin
  • One organic egg
  • Splash of organic milk (optional)
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Cut the pumpkin in half and scoop out the seeds and goop.
  2. Place on a baking sheet and roast for 45-60 minutes until tender. Let cool completely.
  3. Scoop out the pumpkin and whisk about 1/4 cup of pumpkin with one egg. Add a splash of milk (optional) and blend together.
  4. Apply the mixture to your face and neck for 15 to 20 minutes, then rinse off.
  • For dry skin: Add a touch of honey which acts as a humectant and the natural sweetener provides antiseptic properties, too.
  • For oily skin: For a tightening effect, pour in a splash of apple cider or cranberry juice.

    Don’t knock someone getting engaged after just 6 months. My hubby proposed to me after 4 days!! Yes, 4 days and I said yes and we married 14 months later. Now we have been married for 26 happy years and have a wonderful 20 year old son. It can happen if you meet the right person. I wish her the best and hope she will finally have her happy ending.

  12. Yuonne Schunter says:

    Sure, anti-wrinkle creams really work, but only if you find the most effective and the fitting one. That is determined most importantly by the substances of the cream. The improper ingredients can damage your skin as an alternative of do wonders for it. And since pores and skin of men is especially weak to redness, oiliness, and irritation, there’s all of the more purpose so that you can keep away from anti-wrinkle creams that comprise chemicals, artificial ingredients, and preservatives. Fragrances can do some harm as well.

Face Time: Middle Eastern DIY Face Mask

Greenista Girl Shivani

Want to give your skin a much needed pick-me-up but just can’t squeeze in a spa day? Check out this cheap and easy way to make a Middle Eastern DIY Face Mask … it’ll give your skin a healthy, fresh glow with items found right in your fridge.

Middle Eastern DIY Face Mask

  • 3/4 organic cucumber
  • 2 1/2 TB plain organic yogurt
  • 1 large organic egg white
  • 1 3/4 tsp organic lemon juice

Chop 3/4 of the cuke into diced pieces (leave the skin on). Mix in a blender until it becomes a uniform puree.

Add the plain yogurt, lemon juice, and egg whites. Continue to puree until fully blended. Hint, the egg white will make it frothy.

Pour the mixture into a bowl and apply immediately to a freshly-washed face. If you prefer a chilled mask, place it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before applying.

Leave it on for 25 minutes, then using warm water, rinse it off completely.

Cucumbers contain ascorbic and caffeic acids. These acids prevent water retention which is why when cucumbers are applied topically they are often helpful for swollen eyes, burns, and dermatitis.

Crimes of Fashion: Style, Naturally

Greenista Girl Neha

Do you avoid buying non-eco fashion and beauty products because you think they aren’t as stylish? Tsk, tsk. We won’t lock you up for it but we will assign you a little reading … don’t worry, there are a ton of pictures. Style, Naturally: The Savvy Shopping Guide to Sustainable Living by eco-model Summer Rayne Oakes is an expansive paperback that covers eco-friendly health, beauty, and fashion in an ϋber-stylish way. Trust us; it’s far from the neutral burlap items you think of. Oakes wants to inspire you rather than guilt you into going green. Style, Naturally showcases hundreds of her fave eco-brands and designers like Stella McCartney, Levi’s, Loomstate, Aveda, and more. And with over 500 photos and over 300 pages of style, us Greenista Girls consider it our new bible.

Opt for buying this book used … it’s a steal at less than $4. Then after you’re finished pass it on to a friend or used book store. By buying used, you’re saving trees and reducing CO2 emissions.

Don’t forget to apply sunscreen at least 30 minutes before hitting the outdoors. This time allows the skin to soak up the cream, hopefully with body-friendly ingredients.

The Big ‘Screen: Eco Sunscreen

Greenista Girl Neha

Want your skin to get Hollywood royalty treatment? Make it a star with ThinkBaby eco sunscreen. ThinkBaby specializes in safe, eco-friendly products that provide all the advantages of chemical products, but without the damages. On our radar: ThinkBaby and ThinkSport. It has an SPF of 30 and is water resistant. Although it’s made with the babes in mind, the Greeenista Girls love to use it on their grownup bods. These two types of sunscreens provide a safe alternative to harsh carcinogens and hormone disruptors. Did you know that toxic chemicals from other sunscreens have been known to leak into the blood stream within 26 seconds of exposure? Yikes! Bonus: Thanks to the high amount of zinc in ThinkBaby sunscreens, there is no white “ghostly” effect either. We’re ready for our close-up.

Your ‘screen should be made with natural sun blockers like Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide. If you are unsure about the chemicals in your current sunscreen, search about them online at the Cosmetics Database.

Just apply a small amount to damp skin and massage in a circular motion. The best part: It won’t leave your skin oily like conventional ones and it’s free of toxic and synthetic chemical. Plus, it’ll help skin renewal by 50% in just two weeks. Yee-ha!
