The ancient cucumber has been popular with women as a face mask and is very rich in moisture, antioxidants, and a perfect pH balance with your skin. Cucumber miraculously reduces the eyelid and is known as an effective facial skin-soothing and anti-aging active. Make your own face with a cucumber through these ways.
1. Reduce dark circles, swelling, bruising.
Cut two cucumber slices and place them on your eyes within 20 minutes of each evening. The active ingredient in cucumber will reduce swelling, bruising, and fatigue in your eyes. Makeup experts around the world still use this trick, especially for artists and models who have to work too late.
2. Moisturizing facial skin
The term “melon rose water” is no stranger to women even if it is only extracted from cucumbers. It doesn’t cost money to cut ½ a cucumber and blend it with 3 tablespoons of witch hazel (a solution extracted from the plant, grown a lot in North America to treat acne effectively, or recommended by a dermatologist) and 2 tablespoons of distilled water. Apply a piece of makeup cotton to the skin of your face. You can use it for a few weeks if you keep it clean in the fridge.
3. Skin regeneration mask
To improve and rejuvenate the skin, mix the cucumber juice with a few drops of lemon juice and bran powder and apply to the face. This improves and brightens the skin.
4. Remove acne and nourish hair
Mix the cucumber juice with apple vinegar, aloe juice, and tomato juice. You’ve got a great product that cleanses pores. Just mix well and lightly dot on the skin (note to avoid putting the cord in your eyes) or apply to the hair and gently massage and wash, rinse after a few minutes.
5. Acne Mask
Blend the turmeric powder, lemon juice, and freshly ground cucumber with the peel. You have an effective therapeutic mask product that is applied daily for 15 minutes, then rinse.
6. Facial Skin Regeneration Mask
The blend of ground cucumber, lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of honey to cover your face in the evening gives you luxurious and firm skin. Allow to stand for about 20 minutes, then rinse with warm water.
7. Skin Moisturizing Mask
Mix 1 teaspoon oatmeal with thinly chopped cucumber and 1 tablespoon honey. Allow standing at room temperature for about half an hour to thicken the mixture. The cover face within 20 minutes, then rinse.
Or if you don’t have oatmeal, you can follow the recipe: Take ½ cup chopped cucumber, ½ cup chopped avocado, 1 egg white, and 2 teaspoons powdered milk. Grind the mixture, then apply to your face and relax for 30 minutes. Rinse with water.
For mixed skins, you can use half a cucumber and 1 tablespoon of yogurt, mix and cover for about 20 minutes and then rinse.
8. Reduce dry hair
Drinking cucumber juice is good for dry or broken hair. You can also wash your hair with cucumber juice to get super smooth, shiny, and moisturized hair.
For those who like swimming, hair damaged by pool cleaning chemicals can use a mixture of 1 egg, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and half of the peeled and ground cucumber. Wipe all over hair and let soak for 10 minutes, then rinse.
