Some Sundays are just to relax and to treat yourself. Therefore, this Sunday was time again for a face mask. I had a leftover cucumber which needed to be used before it starts to rot. So, I made an easy mask and because I still had too much cucumber, I made some pads with them. I have two homemade facial treatment ideas for you to try out.
Cucumber oatmeal face mask
For this mask you need one half of a small cucumer, two tablespoons of ground oatmeal, honey and lemon juice.
Blend all those ingredients together and apply the mixture on your clean skin. Wait for 15 minutes and rinse it off with lukewarm water.
For this easy mask you just need some pieces of cucumber. You can store a whole cucumber in your fridge to cool. Then, you can slice some thin circles from the cooled cucumber and apply them all over your face and on the eye lids.
Or, what´s also possible: You can cut some slices and store them in a zipper bag and put it in the freezer. Every morning you can get two slices out of the freezer and let them thaw a bit. Put them on your eye lids for 2 minutes. It helps preventing dark circles and the skin around your eyes will look fresher.
