3 DIY Healing Cucumber Facial Masks

You may associate cucumbers with reducing undereye puffiness. It’s true that cucumbers have cooling properties and are especially beneficial during the warmer months! This fruit (surprisingly, it’s not a vegetable) contains vitamin E and silica, which keep skin moisturized and fresh – especially when the weather is hot.

If your skin has sun damage or has been overexposed, you need a soothing, moisturizing mask designed to heal. Here are 3 DIY healing cucumber facial masks you’ll want to try. Keep in mind that each mask is inexpensive and effective. We also love that these masks are made with natural ingredients you can usually find in your fridge or pantry.

1. Hydrating Mask

2 teaspoons aloe vera gel

Combine ingredients in a blender or food processor. Apply mask to skin, and let sit for 5-10 minutes. Your skin will feel cool and refreshed. Ahhhh….

3. Refreshing Mask

3 ounces diced cucumber, or 1 small cucumber diced
3 tablespoons tea oil
2 tablespoons yogurt

Pulse ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth. Apply mask to skin, and let sit for 15 minutes. Similar to the hydrating mask, this one uses tea tree oil instead of olive oil. Tea tree oil is an anti-bacterial that makes your face feel clean and fresh. This mask is great for healing acne, too.
