DIY Jack-o-lantern Face & Hair Masks
Fall is such a beautiful time, but your skin can suffer from the cold weather and get dry and sensitive. Pumpkins are filled with antioxidants, zinc, and vitamins that are especially nourishing to dry and tired skin.
So if you have any pumpkin leftover from Jack-o-lanterns carving, why not use it to nourish your skin and hair?

2 tablespoons of honey
Combine the ingredients in a small bowl and mix well. Apply the mask through your entire hair (all the way from the roots to your tips.) Put on a shower cap and leave on for about 30 minutes. Rinse off well and towel dry.
