I enjoy homemade cucumber face mask with sour cream. It refreshes my skin and lifts my spirit because of summer smell. This is a great aromatherapy during the autumn blues. This cucumber mask is suitable for all skin types.
Cucumber has long been known as a hypoallergenic product (read article Homemade Facial Mask for Wrinkles) and if you are not allergic to sour cream, you can safely use it for sensitive skin. Also this cucumber mask is a good nutrient and tonic for aging skin.
Use low-fat sour cream for oily skin and conversely fat sour cream for dry skin. You can add a few drops of aromatic oils of peppermint or pine to this mask, but I don’t do it because I love this mask for its natural odor as well.
- 1 cucumber
- 1 Tbsp of sour cream
Clean small cucumber and remove the peel.
Grind it in a blender or rub it on small grater. Mix the resulting mush with sour cream.
Liberally spread the mask onto your face and neck excluding the eye area. Enjoy the scent of summer for 20 minutes.
Carefully remove the mask from the face by soft paper towel. Splash the face with cold water.
Well, life has become more fun and your skin looks more fresh, isn’t it?
