SOUTH SALEM, N.Y. -- Got extra pumpkins lying around the house from the kid's Jack-O-Lantern or a can of pumpkin puree? In the spirit of Halloween, South Salem resident and DIY eco-beauty guru Indie Lee says you can take those leftovers and create a cleansing -- and nourishing -- pumpkin face mask recipe.

According to Lee's blog , the pumpkin enzymes act as a gentle exfoliator that won’t strip skin with harsh irritants. It's also loaded with vitamins A and C which promotes new cell regeneration. Plus, says her blog, it’ll smell just as delicious as what's in the oven. Go to www.indielee.com for more recipes including a mouth-watering sweet potato mask.
