Who writes Beautiful Basics?

 My name is Kassie and I’m a chronically ill 28-year-old from a small town in Oregon. I have a passion for all things beauty and green living. I write about natural and organic beauty products as well as DIY beauty recipes and other odds and ends. I'm also an animal lover and believe beauty should be cruelty free. I'm a proud cat mommy and vegetarian.

I’m not an expert or a professional but I have learned a lot about beauty and skin care by experimenting and teaching myself. I like to keep my posts as positive as possible. I love testing out products but I only write about the ones I love. Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoy!

I also have a blog that chronicles my life living with chronic illness.

Pumpkin Mask for Dry Skin

If your skin is looking a little dry and dull today's beauty recipe will be perfect for you. Like I mentioned on Monday, pumpkin is a perfect complexion enhancer because of it's ability to nourish and exfoliate. We all want a gorgeous, glowing look and pumpkin will help us get what we want. It's got tons of vitamins like A and C, zinc, and alpha-hydroxy acids.

What you need:
½ cup of pumpkin puree
¼ cup of oil (you can use jojoba, olive, or softened coconut oil)
2 tbs honey
2 tbs heavy cream (optional)

Mix all of the ingredients together until blended and spread the mixture over your clean face. Leave it on for about 20 minutes before removing with warm water and a soft wash cloth.

Your skin will look refreshed, brightened, and renewed!
