It’s cheap and easy… This DIY face mask may actually be inside your fridge right now…
Face masks have long been dubbed as miracle workers for radiant and young-looking skin. In fact, spas use these all the time. Unfortunately, face masks may be costly especially when you use them often.
When you look at the ingredients in face masks available in the market, you might think that you actually have most of them lying inside your fridge. Celebrity and Australian model Miranda Kerr is obsessed with this DIY face mask and the main ingredient is easy to find – cucumber.
Cucumbers have long been dubbed as the ultimate dark circle remover. Well, this miracle fruit can boost skin radiance and hydration. Aside from reducing dark circles around the eyes, it can curb eye puffiness, fade freckles, improve complexion, soothe a sunburn and tighten up pores.
You’re in luck, below is an easy tutorial on how to make your own DIY face mask out of cucumber slices.
Main Ingredient: Cucumber
What You’ll Need To Make This DIY Face Mask:
- Mandolin slicer
- Chopping board
- Clean bowl
Step 1: Put The Cucumber In The Refrigerator
Put one piece of cucumber in the refrigerator to cool it down. This DIY face mask needs to be cool to achieve its maximum soothing effect.
Step 2: Cut Off One End Of The Cucumber
Once the cucumber is cool, cut one end of it.
Step 3: Slice The Cucumber Through A Mandolin Slicer
Grab a mandolin and thinly slice the cucumber. You can create perfect and thin slices by maintaining a steady motion. If you don’t have a mandolin, you can use a knife and a chopping board. Make sure you slice the cucumber thinly and evenly, making the slices thin enough to be flexible.
If you’re using a long cucumber, you may only need to slice half of it. Be sure to slice the pieces you’ll only need.
Step 4: Put The Cucumber Slices On The Face
Before putting the cucumber slices, be sure to wash your face. If you want to take a shower instead, pop the cucumber slices inside the refrigerator to keep it cool. Put the cucumber slices on your face one by one.
Start from top to bottom and wipe out any fluid that may run down your neck.
Cover your entire face with the cucumber slices.
Step 5: Keep The DIY Face Mask On For 30 Minutes
Keep the cucumber face mask on for about 3o minutes. You can read a book or just lie down while you’re waiting. You can also put cucumber slices on your eyes to reduce dark circles and eye puffiness.
Step 6: Remove Cucumber Slices
After half an hour, remove the cucumber slices.
Put on your toner and lotion to achieve the DIY face mask’s maximum moisturizing effect.
You’ll feel your skin is smooth and moisturized.
