Cucumber Mask DIY - 3 Easy Ways





I know it looks like I'm about to show you a recipe for salsa, but guess again.  Haha.  Instead, I've got three ways to make a lovely and refreshing cucumber mask.  Perfect way to beat the heat and stay beautiful :)

STUFF TO KNOW


+ For each recipe, I used a 1/3 cucumber pureed in my magic bullet, plus the other ingredients... so basically I used a whole cucumber to make all three recipes.

+ Your recipe might be a bit "prettier", plus easier to turn into a paste if you peel your cucumbers first.

+ To make a less watery mixture, cut out and discard the seeds.

+ Even if your mask mixture is not watery, it will be drippy.  It might have a hard time staying on your face if you are sitting upright.  For best results, make it a full siesta and apply it lying down!  (I had the best skin-sticking results when oats were added- see photo above!)

 + Alternately, you can choose to make your mask watery on purpose, then brush the water-like substance all over your face.




CUCUMBER LEMON AND HONEY MASK

+ 1/3 Cucumber, pureed
+ 1/2 Lemon, juiced
+ 1 Tbs honey

CUCUMBER BLUEBERRY AND OATS MASK

+ 1/3 Cucumber, pureed
+ Handful of blueberries
+ 2 Tbs oats

CUCUMBER COCONUT AND EGG MASK

+ 1/3 Cucumber, pureed
+ 1/2 Tsp coconut oil
+ 1 Egg white



Will keep in the fridge for a little less than a week!

  1. Mm, those look good enough to eat, haha...did your face feel better after you applied them? I love putting cucumber slices on my eyes so a cucumber mask seems like a no-brainer. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hey Gigi! My face felt really good afterward... though it was most effective at de-puffing the eye area. After I applied some moisturizer (I use coconut oil), my skin felt and looked great!
