Cucumber is one of the most beneficial vegetables for your body. It’s a great antioxidant, cleanser and exfoliant. That’s why I love all at-home recipes that include cucumbers – it just works! Here is one of my favorite apple-cucumber facial masks. Here’s what you’ll need:
* 1/2 cucumber, peeled
* 1 egg white
* 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
* 1/2 teaspoon lime juice
* 1/2 teaspoon apple mint leaves
* 1 drop lime essential oil
Combine all 5 ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. Add the essential oil last and mix well. Refrigerate the mixture for 10 minutes.
Apply a layer to your clean face and neck area and leave it on for 20 minutes. Rinse well with warm water. The apple cucumber facial mask is best when used immediately as the ingredients are perishable. The leftovers can be refrigerated in the coldest section of the refrigerator for up to 1-2 days but should be discarded after that.
