October Means Time For Audrina Patridge's Pumpkin Facial Mask

We love when celebrities give us their favorite beauty tips. And today, we are looking at The Hills' Audrina Patridge.

We're in the month of October, and that means it's time for Audrina Patridge's Pumpkin Facial Mask.

Pumpkin has become very popular these days at expensive spas and salons. There are pumpkin facial masks, pumpkin body wraps, and so on. This time we are applying pumpkin to the skin, because it's rich in anti-oxidants ---full of vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin C, potassium, alpha-carotene, zinc, beta carotene, and lutein.

And pumpkin acts like Alpha-Hydroxy acids. In other words, skin texture is improved, roughness diminishes, acne stays away, and skin is moisturized and smooth.

Audrina Patridge was sweet enough to give her fans 2 Pumpkin Skin Care recipes from her website. last October. And the recipes are still popular once again this fall. This is why the gorgeous actress believes in pumpkin for healthy skin:

Here is a recipe for a pumpkin mask and a pumpkin spice scrub for you guys to try that I found at care2.com ."
