At Home Spa – Cucumber
|I love the cooling sensation of cucumber. I find it particularly soothing in the heat of summer. We are very familiar with putting slices of cucumbers on our eyes but we can use the on the rest of our skin too!
I find the best way is to juice the cucumber and wither treat the juice as a toner or add it to clay to form a mud mask. Cucumbers contain silica, ascorbic acid, sulfur, vitamins and plenty of water.
Cucumbers are also reputed to reduce puffiness, reduce dark circles around the eyes and reduce the visibility of freckles! Wow! Isn’t that amazing? Hmm, I am thinking about mixing up a mud mask with cucumber juice and crushed mint leaves for a cooling sensation. What does a cucumber inspire you to whip up?
