We’ve whipped up a few DIY pumpkin beauty products that have a healthy dose of nutrients that’ll keep you glowing through fall. With vitamin A, C, and E, antioxidants, zinc, potassium, and fruit enzymes, pumpkin is a natural skin superhero. This easy-to-make pumpkin mask, pumpkin body scrub, and papaya and pumpkin enzyme mask will give you a luminous glow—you’ll never waste your extra jack-o’-lantern filling again.


Pumpkin Mask Recipe

For nourishing and detoxifying tired skin


Pumpkin Face Mask Benefits for Skin

Pumpkin contains vitamin A, C, and E, and antioxidants, which help fight sun damage and wrinkles. It also has fruit enzymes that help naturally exfoliate dead skin cells. Finally, it contains zinc and potassium to combat redness. Honey locks in moisture to keep your skin plump and glowing. Apple cider vinegar detoxes skin, reduces inflammation, and helps fight acne.



1 small slice of pumpkin (roughly ½ cup)

1 raw egg

½ teaspoon honey

½ teaspoon apple cider vinegar


How to Make a Pumpkin Mask

1. Puree the pumpkin in a food processor until smooth.

2. Add in egg, honey, and apple cider vinegar and blend.

3. Apply to your clean face.

4. Let it soak in for 15 to 20 minutes.

5. Rinse and apply your usual skin care products.

Pumpkin Body Scrub

For gentle all-over exfoliation


Pumpkin Body Scrub Benefits for Skin

Honey moisturizes skin while the pumpkin’s fruit enzymes and brown sugar gently dissolves dead skin cells.



½ cup pureed pumpkin

½ cup organic brown sugar

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon honey

2 drops vanilla extract


How to Make a Pumpkin Scrub

1. Puree the pumpkin in a food processor.

2. Add in remaining ingredients and mix together.

3. In the shower or tub, apply the scrub on dry skin. Gently rub to exfoliate dead skin cells.

4. Rinse off the remaining scrub in the shower. Your skin will instantly feel smoother.


Papaya and Pumpkin Enzyme Mask or Peel

For gentle facial exfoliation and fading acne scars


Note: This mask also doubles as a peel that will gently exfoliate your skin. Be sure to do a test patch before you place the mask/peel on your face and only do this once a month. You may notice some pink skin after removing the peel due to an increased circulation. Don’t be alarmed. This is natural and should go away within 20 minutes.


Papaya and Pumpkin Enzyme Mask Benefits for Skin

Both papaya and pumpkin contain powerful fruit enzymes that naturally remove dead skin cells and get rid of blemishes, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars to reveal smooth, glowing skin.



12 ounce pureed pumpkin

1 papaya

1 egg


How to Make a Papaya and Pumpkin Enzyme Mask

1. Puree the pumpkin and the papaya (with seeds removed) in a food processor.

2. Mix the egg into the mask.

3. Apply the mask to a clean face. Leave on for 8 to 10 minutes.

4. Wipe off gently with a cloth and cool water. The water will neutralize the peel.

Your skin deserves to pampered. Whether you reap the detoxifying benefits of our pumpkin mask recipe, dissolve dead skin cells with our pumpkin body scrub, or fade acne scars with our papaya and pumpkin enzyme mask, your skin will be glowing…and not in a creepy way. Have some fun this Halloween with these fabulous DIYs!

    HOw long is the pumpkin scrub good for after it is all mixed together?

  4. A Dimig says:

    I looked up this recipe because, while cleaning a pumpkin, I noticed how luxurious the pumpkin gut juice was. Thick and serum-y, so, like any diy beauty fanatic would, I slathered it on my face and let it sit while I finished prepping the pumpkin for dinner. When I washed it off with a clean cloth and water I noticed that dead skin was sloughing off and a ton of little blackheads had come to the surface. I immediately put the rest of the innards into the fridge and googled ‘pumpkin face mask’ and voila!

  10. Barb says:

    Can the mask be made ahead of time and kept in frig or freezer?

    • carly says:

      Dear Barb, thank you for your question. Unfortunately, you should not use our masks once they reach the expiration date. Also, we don’t recommend storing them in the frig or freezer as the UFO™ will heathen them up or cool them down depending on the treatment. Hope this answers your questions. 🙂

  11. […] 22  Have a “Pumpkin Spa Night.” Place some drinking water, “spa water” (wth cucumber or lemon) or herbal tea in a non-breakable cup or container to hydrate during your bath. Draw a bath (Bath and Body Works has lots of seasonal fragranced products if you life fragrant bubbles). Add some Epsom Salts for healing and calming magnesium and set a few water-safe crystal buddies (quartz, carnelian, citrine) along the edge of your bath. Six drops each of red and yellow food coloring turns the bathwater pumpkin orange!  Light a Pumpkin Chai cancle ($1, Dollar Tree). Listen to music, ambient sounds or a guided meditation while you relax in your candle-lit bath for about 20 minutes. Or try one of these homemade pumpkin mask or scrub recipes. […]
