Cooling Cucumber Mask
1 large cucumber
2 TBSP coconut oil
1/4 cup aloe vera gel
8 drops of essential oil (optional)
Blend all ingredients together until all ingredients form a smooth cream. I use my Bullet to do my blending. A stick blender will also work. Transfer to ice cube tray and freeze. There are no preservatives in this, so if you don’t freeze it, you must use it NOW. NOTE: If you freeze it, as soon as it is solid, transfer the cubes to a freezer-type zip lock bag. This will keep them sanitary.
But there’s no stopping you from saving out a bit and trying it today. Just apply it around your eyes, NOT ON your eyes. It will reduce puffiness and feel very refreshing.
Leave on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse off. And when you need more, thaw some from your freezer stash.
