Cucumber face masks

Cucumber face masks

Despite such an affordable abundance of all kinds of facial skin care products, all-natural masks have not become less popular. Of course, they take more time to prepare, and the temptation to save an extra minute is very great, but still the effect they produce is impressive.

Both in store and in natural masks, the well-known and tasty vegetable, cucumber, often appears. Its versatile healing properties have been known since ancient times, and that is why cucumber masks are so widespread. The fact that it helps all skin types and is not afraid of any female age also testifies in favor of a green vegetable. And now it’s time to get acquainted with the recipes.

For those who, having “caught” the first wrinkles on the face, want to rejuvenate, a very simple, but quite effective mask will do. However, it can hardly be called a full-fledged mask. So, in order to smooth out small wrinkles, it is necessary to freeze a fresh cucumber, and then cut it into rings and attach it to problem areas, which are most often the zones in the corners of the lips.

For those whose facial skin is prone to dryness and flaking, the following mask is recommended: take grated cucumber and cottage cheese in equal amounts, mix thoroughly and apply on the face, leave for 15 minutes. This mask is absolutely harmless, and it can be used several times a week.

Those who wish to whiten their skin can be advised to do the following: peel a fresh cucumber, and attach its peel to the face with the inner (cut off from the pulp) side for a quarter of an hour. An excellent whitening effect can also be achieved by preparing a cucumber-lemon mask. To do this, you need to mix the juices of the main ingredients in equal parts. Then a cotton swab or a piece of bandage should be dipped in the resulting solution and put on the face for 15 minutes.

To get rid of blackheads, you can use the following mask: grate a fresh cucumber without peeling it from the skin. Pour the resulting slurry with 400-500 ml of boiling water and let it brew, then put it on your face.

You can also narrow the pores with the help of one cucumber mask. It is not difficult to prepare it: one egg white is whipped, mixed with a tablespoon of cucumber juice. This mixture should be applied to the face, and after a while removed with a cotton swab or napkin, then the face is not washed for several hours.

An excellent nourishing mask can be prepared by mixing a spoonful of honey with a small grated cucumber. The resulting slurry is distributed over the face with a not too thin layer and left for 20 minutes.

Cucumber-creamy mask perfectly tones the skin. It is prepared by mixing cucumber juice and cream in equal proportions, applied to the skin of the face and removed after a quarter of an hour.

Most cucumber masks are very easy to prepare and do not require any exotic ingredients or precise milligram measurements. You can just cook your favorite salad, and leave a few cucumber slices or peel for yourself – and the mask is ready. Cucumber itself has a number of useful properties and has a positive effect on the skin, and the addition of other components only enhances the effect of the cucumber.

Cucumber masks are used to solve various problems – from peeling the skin to whitening it, and perhaps it is for this versatility that this green vegetable has gained recognition among women who have tried its healing properties.
