Pumpkins are not only a festive symbol of fall, they are also high in vitamin C, which helps build and heal skin tissue. Honey makes a great base for any mask.

• 1/4 cup of pumpkin puree
• 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
• 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil
1 tablespoon of honey

Mix ingredients together. Pull your hair off your face with a washable headband and secure with an elastic band. Slather mixture on face and let sit for 10 minutes. Rinse with warm water. This mask may be messy, but once you see the way it makes your face glow, you'll find it's worth it!
