Hello there!

Whats up guys today I have for you an easy DIY pumpkin face mask because duh its pumpkin season. This mask  helps to brighten your skin, fade acne scars and also helps with anti aging.



Pumpkin - loaded with Vitamin C which help brighten your skin, fade acne scars, protect from damage and helps with anti aging. (PS. eating pumpkin actually also helps boost skin elasticity and improve skin tone! )

Pumpkin is also packed with antioxidants like Carotenoids that help protect your skin from free radicals. Even more, pumpkin has tons of minerals like Potassium, copper, magnesium, manganese, and iron, even more! Jam packed with B vitamins like niacin, riboflavin, B6 and folate, which all help skin cell turn over and and renewal.

Honey - besides being OH so delicious, honey has Vitamin C which help nourish and brighten the skin, Vitamin B1 & B2 to protect skin from damage, B3 & B6 to help with inflammation, hydrates and nourishes the skin.

Egg Whites - this stuff doesn’t just make an amazing omelette guys, egg whites help tighten your skin  which helps with anti aging, there’s also astringent in the egg whites which help draw oils from your pores helping with shrinking large pores and  blackheads. Also the protein in the egg whites helps replenish and nourish our skin !

Cinnamon - I’ll start by saying I put cinnamon in pretty much on everything I can, but did you know cinnamon has some amazing skin benefits! It helps dry out and treat acne, reduce inflammation, exfoliates and helps promote circulation in the skin ! If you have dry skin I recommend using very little or excluding this ingredient.



  • 2 tablespoon fresh pumpkin (do not use the canned stuff because it’s loaded with preservatives that are no bueno for your skin! )

  • 1 tablespoon of organic honey

  • 2 tablespoon Egg whites

  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon or 2 dashes


  1. Microwave pumpkin for about a minute to soften it. Do not boil it or you’ll lose all the nutrients in the water

  2. Mash up the pumpkin

  3. Separate the egg white from the yolk

  4. Take a tablespoon of the pumpkin

  5. Add egg whites, honey and cinnamon and mix thoroughly ( you can also put this mixture in the blender for a thinner consistency)

  6. Apply a nice generous and even layer to your face (make sure you apply the mask on a clean face !)

  7. Leave it on for about 20 minutes

  8. Wipe off the excess mask with damp towel

  9. Rinse with warm water ( do not use face wash or you’ll just wash off all the goodness)

  10. VOILA! Done. Brighter, smoother and healthier looking skin!


There you go!

I hope you enjoyed this mask recipe, let me know what you’re biggest skin problem is in the comments so I can try to concoct a new DIY face mask for it !

How to Get Rid of Blackheads at Home | DIY Charcoal Mask

beautyyanyi zhen3 Comments

So here I will be showing you how I got rid of most of my blackheads (note they really never go away! Unfortunately… =/ )

Step 1: Remove all of our makeup and make sure we are starting w a clean face so that the products really sink in to our pores. I like using the Neutrogena Makeup Cleansing Wipes because they take off everything, but it does leave a slight greasy residue afterward so I like to just rinse my face or wipe it with a wet paper towel so that again we have a clean face that the products can stick to. 

Step 2: I am going to use these Biore Deep Pore Cleansing Nose Strips to remove the surface layer of bacteria of the blackheads and this is also going to open up my pores so that when I do my charcoal mask it's really sucking out all of the rest of the impurities that are deep down in the pores. 

Step 3: Were are going to make our own charcoal mask!! Woah ! who knew we could right?  and the first thing were going to need is activated charcoal.

So activated charcoal is pretty much charcoal that is heated creating a very porous substance which when mix it with water it has really high adsorbency which helps remove toxins and impurities. Activated charcoal is actually used to treat poisoning and it's the charcoal used for air and water purifiers. Who knew right ?

The second ingredient we need is bentonite clay. Which is made of aged volcanic clay and it's also amazing in drawing out toxins and impurities from the body and skin
Bentonite clay actually produces tiny electrical charges when it's mixed with water ... No don't worry you're not going to get electrocuted. Haha
It just mean it's pretty much turn I to a magnet that's going to help draw out the blackheads. Capiche ? :)

Ingredients Used:


Now to the mixing:

-       Using a non-metal bowl and spoon (metal causes a reaction with the Bentonite Clay that makes it less effective and also because the label says to use non metal LOL )

o    Mix 2 capsules of the Activated Charcoal , gently squeeze the gel capsules and pull open. Be VERY gentle! If you’re too rough it might explode on you and create a mess everywhere !

o    +  ½ teaspoon of Bentonite Clay

o    + 1 ½ teaspoon of water

o    Mix with non metal spoon or your fingers

o    Apply to just your nose or your entire face

And that's it! Do this mask at least twice a week and you will see results in about 2-3 weeks! Blackheads are super stubborn (like my mother ... love you mom! lol) so consistency is the key! 

Good luck ! =D
