Open your fridge and you'll be surprised how many ingredients you have to make skincare masks.
Simple Cucumber Cooling Mask
Puree half an unpeeled cucumber in a blender until it's watery. Separate the juice in a strainer. Apply the cucumber juice to your freshly washed face. Let the mask sit on your skin for 15 minutes then follow up with your favorite oil for optimum moisture.
A honey face mask is as simple and effective! Snag some raw or Manuka honey, and you've got yourself a spa-grade mask in a snap. "Using honey by itself really is an effective skin clearing, nourishing, and revitalizing treatment.
That's because honey, especially of the Manuka variety, has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that calm the skin and can keep breakouts at bay. With all the benefits honey has to offer, no surprise you can just invest in a jar of the straight-up goop and slather on. Here's how to do it right:
Apply an even layer of raw or Manuka honey on damp skin.
Leave on for 20 minutes, then rinse off with warm water. "It rinses off much more easily than you might expect! "It's hardly sticky at all when you add water."
After rinsing, follow with an oil to seal in the moisture.
