14. Cucumber, Honey and Yogurt facial mask
If you have really dry skin or have been out in the sun and outdoors for a while, you will have been exposed to moisture sapping UV rays and all those other awful free radicals like smog, smoke and exhaust fumes. Your skin is going to feel like it was dragged through the desert on a blistering hot day. If you want a mask that will hydrate and literally bring the life and luster back to your skin then a cucumber, honey and yogurt mask will do the trick.
What you will need
- 1 tablespoon of plain yogurt
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- 1 teaspoon of pureed cucumber (it’s like a slice or two that you just quickly toss into your blender – if you don’t have one, just mush it up with a fork.
- A small bowl
Peel the cucumber pieces and slice into small pieces. Put these in the blender or just mush them up with a fork. Then stir in the tablespoon of honey followed by the tablespoon of yogurt. Now I know this sounds super delicious. It is not for eating but for smoothing onto your skin.
Once you have your mixture all blended. Gently apply to your neck and face and avoid your eyes, please. Allow the mask to dry completely (it usually dries in about 10 to 15 minutes). Once dry. Gently wash off with slightly warm water. Gently dry your face with a soft towel. Stand back and look at the difference in your skin. It’s glowing and has been completely hydrated and moisture restored to it. This is a really easy mask to make at least once or twice a week. It will keep your skin moist and supple and look good.
