This face mask looks amazing, I mean love anything containing pumpkin (the same goes for almonds and coconuts so..) so when I saw this at “The Kitchy Kitchen” it pretty much made my day (thank you Diana for sending me her blog). Let’s hope it’s as amazing as I think it is

Ingredients

1/4 cup pumpkin puree

1/4 cup whole milk

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon cinnamon

2 tablespoons coconut oil

2 tablespoons almonds (grind in food processor until powdery)

Mix all ingredients together to form a paste and apply to skin using fingers.  Leave on for 30 minutes and then wash off.  (You can also change the coarseness of the almonds to make this more of a scrub.)

Avocado & Oil Hair mask

On my evening tryingtoavoidtheworkthatishouldbedoing internet time I found this hair beauty tip.. sounds great!!

“I have a hair mask trick! It’s not an exact science, but here’s my method: I take one super ripe avocado; halve, peel and de-seed it and put it in a bowl. I mash it with my hands but you could probably use a tool of some sort. Then add about ¼ cup of olive oil (really just enough to thin the avocado paste out a bit — it should be like a paste, not soup). Then I mix in 2 eggs. Once thoroughly mixed I apply generously all over my hair — I focus on the roots because that’s where I need it most, but some people might feel like the tips is where they want to concentrate the mixture. Next wrap your hair in plastic wrap and let sit! I usually do about 20 minutes, then get in the shower and stand and let the heat give the mask a final kick. Then I take the plastic wrap off and rinse! I shampoo after because I just had food in my hair, but I’ve heard some people don’t. It’s a personal choice. That once every 6 weeks is how my hair has gone from brown to red to brown to blonde to black and doesn’t look totally fried!”
