Restorative Mask

Since the enzymes in pumpkin and papaya will already be working hard to break down skin’s top layer of dead cells, massaging this mask into the skin is not necessary. If you’d like a deeper exfoliating effect, gently and slowly massage mask into skin for 30 seconds before allowing to set.
