Balmy Beauty Tips – Tightening Cucumber Mask

Good morning Monday. Hope you all had a good weekend. If you had a particularly busy (and subsequently hungover) weekend and feel as if your skin needs some R&R, this mask is a great remedy. It works best for combination to oily skin however that doesn’t mean that people with dry skin can’t give it a go (just don’t use it too often). The cucumber smoothes and de-puffs the skin whilst the egg white tightens. This mask can help rejuvenate your skin if you’ve been hungover or running on empty – when we’re tired or rundown our skin can look puffy, dull and downright knackered. This will help brighten, tighten and soften your skin.

What you need:

  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh mint

How to:

  1. Puree all the ingredients in a food processor and refrigerate for 10 minutes.
  2. Apply mixture to your face and neck, leave for 15 minutes.
  3. Rinse with warm water first then splash with cold water.
  4. Apply toner and moisturise.

And there you have it, incredibly easy to get beautiful, bright and soft skin! Plus, if you save two extra slices, pop them on your eyes and relax as the mask works its magic – your eyes will also look de-puffed, bright and beautiful!

Happy Masking!
