- The purpose is to open all your pores and remove any dirt particles, make up and oil from your skin.
- Once you have cleaned your face, pat it dry, and then apply a handful of this paste on to your face with the help of your fingers.

- Leave the mask for 30-40 minutes to dry off and then rinse it off with warm water and cotton cloth.
- Once you apply the mask, in the beginning there will be a soothing sensation and after 5 minutes, there will be slight tingling and irking sensation because of the enzymes in play which will clean your pores and tighten your skin.
- After removing the pumpkin mask, apply your usual toner, and then your usual moisturiser on the face.
