Cucumber Oily Skin Facial Mask

Wednesday, July 1, 2009

Summertime is great...but the weather is not helpful for my oily skin. Try this beauty recipe to combat oily skin. It will definitely leave you refreshed and energized! I would have to put this down as my second favourite recipe, my first being the Strawberry Hand and Foot Exfoliant The cucumbers are vital to this recipe, not only because of their cleansing attributes but also because of the wonderful refreshing smell they give to make this beauty recipe one that helps also with stress and relaxation. Cucumbers are popular when it comes to beauty, whether it's the age-old technique of putting them on your eyes to reduce puffyness or utilized as a staple in luxury spas where they place them along with lemons, to drinking water for their clients, to add a refreshing zestful taste. It's amazing how little things can make such a big difference!

Cucumber Oily Skin Facial Mask
1/2 cucumber
1 egg white
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1 teaspoon mint

Puree all ingredients. Once again, I like using a blender just to make my life easier. After the ingredients have been blended, place them into the fridge so that mixture can be chilled. Apply the mixture to your face and leave it on for 15 minutes. Relax. Remove the facial mask with warm water and then end off with cool water. This is especially refreshing during the summer time after a hot and humid day.
