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.
