🥒How to make a cucumber face mask?

You’ll need the following:

• 1 cucumber

• mixing bowl

• mixing spoon

• measuring spoons

• blender or food processor

• strainer

Keep in mind that specific recipes may call for other ingredients too, such as aloe vera, oatmeal, or honey.

🏵Here are 3 options for DIY cucumber face masks, starting with the most basic recipe:

💚 Basic cucumber face mask

This recipe may be a good option if you’re looking for a quick and easy way to refresh or rejuvenate your skin.

1. Blend or puree half an unpeeled cucumber in a blender or food processor until it’s the consistency of a watery paste.

2. Separate the juice from any solid bits by pouring the mixture through a strainer.

3. Apply the cucumber juice to your freshly washed face. Let the mask sit on your skin for 15 minutes.

4. Wash the mask off with cool or lukewarm water and pat your face dry with a soft cloth.

💚 Cucumber and aloe vera face mask

This mask may be especially beneficial if you have dry skin, due to the aloe vera that can boost hydration.

1. Blend or puree half an unpeeled cucumber in a blender or food processor until it’s the consistency of a watery paste.

2. Separate the juice from any solid bits by pouring the mixture through a strainer.

3. Add 2 tablespoons of aloe vera gel to the mixture. Blend until smooth.

4. Apply the mask to your face and massage gently. Let the mask sit on your skin for 15 minutes.

5. Rinse the mask off using cool water. Pat your face dry with a soft cloth.

💚 Cucumber, oatmeal, and honey face mask

This recipe may be a good option for acne-prone skin. Together with cucumber’s astringent properties, oatmeal can help exfoliate and remove dead skin cells, while honey can work to balance the bacteria on your skin.

1. Blend or puree half an unpeeled cucumber in a blender or food processor until it’s the consistency of a watery paste.

2. Separate the juice from any solid bits by pouring the mixture through a strainer.

3. Add 1 tablespoon of oatmeal to the mixture. Stir the oatmeal and cucumber juice until smooth.

4. Add 1 tablespoon of honey to the mixture and stir until well blended.

5. Apply the mixture over your face and neck, and massage gently with your fingertips. Let the mask sit on your skin for 15 minutes.

6. Rinse the mask off with lukewarm water. Pat your face dry with a soft cloth.

💙How to apply

🧖🏻‍♀️For best results, always thoroughly cleanse your skin before applying a mask and be sure that you’ve removed all makeup.

🧖🏻‍♀️When applying a cucumber face mask, gently massage the mask into your skin in small circular motions. This helps the ingredients to penetrate your pores. It also stimulates blood flow on the surface of your skin.

🧖🏻‍♀️Allow the mask to sit on your skin for 10 to 15 minutes, then rinse off with lukewarm or cold water. Don’t use hot water. This can irritate and dry out your skin.

🧖🏻‍♀️Don’t use a face mask more than two or three times a week. Overuse can irritate your skin or disrupt the natural balance of oils.

🥞Royal jelly contains vital nutrients for the health of the skin, including flavonoids, nucleic acid, decanoic acid, enzymes, steroidal hormones, along with vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, acetyl-choline and zinc.

Royal jelly is fantastic stuff for getting rid of wrinkles and fine lines, it is one of the few natural substances to contain collagen. It also has good amounts of lecithin, vitamins A, B-complex, C, D, and E, which are key building nutrients for skin elasticity

🥞Propolis is one of the most powerful natural antibiotics on the planet. It is great for inhibiting the overgrowth of infectious and inflammatory pathogens on the skin’s microbiome; a primary cause of skin problems.

🥞Bee pollen contains very rejuvenating nutrients like carotenoids, flavonoids and phytosterols, which promote cellular regeneration. Studies reveal that bee pollen consumption can improve skin tone and appearance. It is also rich in sulfur, a key component for the production of collagen and healthy skin.

🧡6 Benefits of Turmeric↙️

1. Has Anti-Inflammatory Properties 

Thanks to its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial benefits, turmeric can work wonders on condition-riddled skin. It can also help reduce redness from blemishes and calm skin conditions like eczema and rosacea. 

2. Fight off acne 

Turmeric is excellent for acne because it is a natural antiseptic and helps to keep bacteria from spreading. It’s especially effective when combined with apple cider vinegar which has astringent properties, meaning it plays the same role as your average toner.

3. Reduces dark circles 

“Since turmeric is a proven anti-inflammatory and lightening agent, it’s perfect for alleviating this kind of concern,” says Courtney Chiusano, founder of Courtney Chiusano Skincare in Los Angeles, California. “It also stimulates circulation, which can help reduce puffiness and under-eye darkness caused by poor circulation.” 

4. Protect against sun damage & aging 

Research presented at the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) 68th Annual Meeting shows that a moisturizing cream containing turmeric had the ability to improve the appearance of fine lines and brown spots caused by sun damage. 

It also helps prevent loss of skin elasticity due to long term UV exposure.

5. Reduce appearance of stretch marks 

Turmeric has the antioxidative power to penetrate and improve the function of the skin membrane cells, which will help prevent and treat stretch marks. Experts recommend making your own stretch mark-healing paste with one tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, one teaspoon of turmeric and a squeeze of a wedge of a lemon (about one-eighth of the fruit). Rub this mixture onto the affected areas twice a day.

6. Soothe dry skin

Turmeric can deeply hydrate and revitalize skin while alleviating symptoms of dryness. It naturally speeds up the process of removing dead skin cells to reveal healthy and soft skin, and protects the skin cells from further damage.

Key Ingredients↙️⠀⠀

💦 Deep Ocean Water from the East Sea, Korea with multi vitamin complex & Plant Fermented Water with functional ingredients ⠀⠀

💦 Rose Water from Bulgaria ⠀⠀

💦 Seaweed Extract⠀⠀

💦 Vitamin Tree Extract⠀⠀

💦 Hyaluronate Acid⠀⠀

💦 EGF 10 ppm (Maximum)⠀⠀

💦 Vitamin Complex (B3/B5/C)⠀⠀

💦 EII-6 PerfectTM⠀⠀

✅ 2% Niacinamide for whitening⠀⠀

✅ 0.4% Adenoxine for anti-wrinkle⠀⠀

My Thoughts 💭 ⠀⠀

☘️It come in a very simple dark bottle. Texture is watery and light. Natural Rose scented.⠀⠀

☘️My skin does feel more hydrated and brighter after using it for more than a week. Doesn’t cause any reaction or breakout. Soothing and doesn’t feel tacky (only when it is used on its own). Tested out with other products such as the Hada Labo Hydrating Lotion, feel a bit tacky and takes time to absorb. Better absorption after 1 min of application of Hada Labo Goku-jyun Clear Lotion.⠀⠀

☘️Best with Benton Aloe Vera range which I use together with Benton BHA Aloe Toner and Aloe Propolis Soothing Gel, absorbing almost immediately and not tacky at all. It also goes well with my It’s Skin VC Effector serum. Tried on my husband face and he has the same view as me. We feel so much comfortable using it together with Benton Aloe Vera range. ⠀⠀

☘️Yet to try on sheet mask and I think it will compliment very well with soothing sheet mask for a self care routine. I believe I will see better result with continued use of this product.⠀⠀
