Weekend Project: Make Your Own Cooling Cucumber And Mint Eye Treatment

Large Editorial Image


June 9, 2017

The picture that comes to mind when I think of relaxation and spa time is lying back with two cucumber slices resting on my eyes. Besides being a yummy, refreshing snack, cucumbers are bursting with health and beauty benefits. They aid in digestion and have tons of B vitamins that are known to ease stress and anxiety. There’s more! Cucumbers also rejuvenate the skin and reduce puffiness and under-eye circles.

Sound like just the thing you need after a long work week? Say no more! Here’s how to whip up a super easy and relaxing DIY cucumber eye mask.

You’ll need just two ingredients: 5 sprigs of mint and half of a cucumber.

Next, puree the cucumber and mint together in a blender. Gently pat the mixture underneath and around your eye area. You can leave this on as long as you want, but make sure it stays on for at least 15 minutes to let the puree work some magic before rinsing with warm water.

This simple treatment works wonders because the cucumber decreases eye irritation and the mint softens the skin and increases blood circulation. Just follow up with your favorite moisturizer or eye cream and you’ve just treated yourself to the ultimate spa-like indulgence.
