beauty recipe: Pumpkin Cream Pie Facial

fall flavors, especially pumpkin, are my favorite this time of year. and they're not just good for your taste buds, but also quite fabulous for your skin! Cecilia Wong, founder of Cecilia Wong Skincare in nyc has shared her divine recipe with me {and now you!} for an at-home facial treatment featuring the season's best flavors, designed to exfoliate, boost collagen production and hydrate skin. the recipe is simple...

2 teaspoons of fresh pumpkin
1 teaspoon papaya
1/2 teaspoon raw honey
1/4 teaspoon organic milk
2 teaspoons organic plain greek yogurt
dash of cinnamon {optional}

mix all the ingredients together, until it forms a paste; apply to skin and let sit for 10-15 minutes {the perfect amount of time to sip a cup of spice chai}; massage gently on skin for a minute before rinsing with cool water.

hope you'll try this soon ~ i've already tried it myself and my skin was left looking all a-glow, feeling fresh and definitely pampered. here's to a gorgeous autumn season!
