Oh the joys of relaxing and unwinding from a hard day at work or school. Don’t you know you deserve to just relax and enjoy yourself and to treat your skin? Here’s a great way to take away some of that stress with a cold cucumber eye and face mask. This leaves the skin refreshed and leaving you relaxed and calm.
What you need:
4 cucumber slices
Plastic Zip lock bag
WHAT TO DO:
Slice thin slices of the cucumber (4) and place them in a zip lock bag and put them in the freezer for around 10 minutes. Then go ahead and clean your face with your morning routine face wash. After the 10 minutes is up take the baggy out of the freezer and take two of the cucumbers and place them on your eyes (eyes closed) for 10 minutes…it’s okay to lift them up every once in awhile in case it’s super cold! Then when they start to thaw out put them right under your eyes and set for 10 minutes. Now take the other two from the baggy and rub them all over your face for 3-4 minutes….really massaging it into the skin – throw away the cucumbers and leave the cucumber juice on your face for at least 30 minutes. Your face will start to tighten up and just feel amazing and refreshed. Then gently wash it off and apply your favorite moisturizer.
Do this at least 2x a week.
Cucumber is so good for your body when you consume it and when you put it on your face. Cucumber is known to really whiten your face (which can help with redness/acne scaring) and softening the skin. Cucumbers are like 96% water so it is really hydrating for your face and eyes. It also contains vitamins A, B & C! These vitamins really help the skin to reduce redness and puffy ness under the eyes.
