Beauty recipes for skin with cucumber
One of the secrets to maintaining the youthful appearance of the skin is to keep the connective tissue (or connective tissue) strong. Cucumber is rich in silica (or silicon), an essential mineral to keep connective tissue resistant. In addition, silicon inhibits the aging process in tissues.
As if that were not enough, the cucumber is largely water so it is excellent for moisturizing the skin naturally.
When using cucumber in natural skin creams, it is important to use organic cucumbers since a lot of the skin nutrients are in the cucumber shell and we do not want to use cucumbers that have the shell full of pesticides.
Beauty recipes with cucumber
I believe that the most popular use of cucumber in beauty routines is to reduce dark circles and puffiness around the eyes.
But the truth is that the cucumber also serves to soothe sunburned skin, moisturize the skin, astringent and toning and to lighten the skin.
Rejuvenating cucumber masks
To make a rejuvenating cucumber mask we only need to put four slices of cucumber in a blender (with everything and peel so we will need organic cucumber) and two tablespoons of unflavored natural yogurt.
Put the mask on clean and dry skin and leave for 10 minutes. Natural beauty. Then rinse with fresh water. This mask is especially good for relieving swelling of the face caused by bad night or salt consumption. In addition, by the whitening properties of the cucumber and yogurt, also serves to give a uniform tone to the skin and to eliminate the tan.
Another prescription for a face mask to rejuvenate the skin
Grate a piece of organic cucumber with whole and peel. Add a little bit of jojoba oil and a little bit of white clay to form a paste.
It is placed throughout the face in circular movements and allowed to act for about 8 minutes. Wash with warm water and dry carefully.
Natural cucumber scrub
We can make an exfoliating cream with half a cup of oats and a half cup of cucumber juice. In this video I teach how to extract the juice from the cucumber.
The two ingredients are mixed until a paste is formed. It is applied over the body and face, rubbing with circular movements to exfoliate the skin. Allow to act for 5 minutes and wash with water.
Refreshing cucumber cream for the whole body
2 peeled, seeded cucumbers
1/2 cup warm chamomile tea
4 tablespoons of glycerin
Pour the cucumber into pieces in the blender. It is drained using a canvas so that we only have the cucumber juice. Chamomile tea and glycerin are added. It stirs well. This cream should be kept refrigerated as it has no preservatives. It can be used to refresh the skin on a hot day.
Tip: Cucumber, besides being refreshing and a good astringent for the skin, can be a very effective make-up remover.
Cucumber is also widely used in skin whitening recipes.
