Summer time is hot and can take a toll on your skin. Here is a homemade cucumber cooling mask to help you cool down and moisturize your skin.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 Cucumber (peeled and sliced)
1 Teaspoon Organic Honey
Cut up Cucumber and puree in a food processor
Mix in Honey
You can add a bit more honey if you’d like.
Noreen Young Says: Cucumbers contain cooling nutrients like Vitamin C and caffeine acid which help soothe the skin, tones down puffiness and can even reduce swelling. Honey softens your skin and locks in moisture.
You’ll want to lay on a towel when you apply this. It can be a bit runny and you’ll want to protect your surfaces. Rub all over your face and let sit for 10-15 minutes. It’s ok if it’s clumpy. You can slice a couple pieces of cucumber and set aside to place over your eyes.
I have to tell you, while this is a bit messy, my skin felt A-MAZ-ING afterward! I will definitely be doing this again.
I had some leftover, so I put them in some silicone Ice cube trays to save for later!
Thanks to my friend Noreen Young for this fantastic at home recipe.
