Cooling Cucumber Mask

DIY Frozen Cucumber Eye Mask

Hi everyone!  I’m sure you’ve heard of some of the benefits cucumbers provide for the skin-we’ve all see the spa photos of a woman laying on a massage bed with cucumbers on her eyes, right?  Well, I started digging for information to try to understand exactly why cucumbers are REALLY good for the skin.  I found out some amazing information and was inspired to come up with a recipe for an eye mask that will de-puff, hydrate and fade dark circles!!  Once again, NATURE TO THE RESCUE!

This is a simple mask that just requires a few ingredients and a blender!  I took it one step further and transferred my mask into ice cube trays so I can use this mask without worrying about it going bad, plus the cold works well to combat puffy eyes!!  Just rub a cube over your under eye bags for 5-10 minutes then wash your face with cold water!

Head over to one of my favorite blogs, The Paleo Mama and check out the full DIY Cooling Cucumber Mask post!!

      Nicole-I use these 2 ways. I either thaw a cube in advance and apply as a mask or I use it by rubbing the cube under my eye. It’s great to reduce puffiness in the morning!

    Hi Jenni! Love your enthusiasm & knowledge. In cucumber eye mask, how much Carrot Oil do you suggest in that recipe?

      Laura-Thank you!!! I would add maybe 10 drops to the whole recipe. Carrot Seed Oil is so strong so you don’t need much!

        Jenni, I put 8 drops of carrot oil on the recipe bc all the amounts on the cucumber mask were identical to cucumber eye mask & you had put 8 drops. But 10 is fine too! You had both of them on one post when I wrote down the recipes. I was assuming the cucumber mask was for the entire face & the eye mask was just for the eyes. Now I’m confused…?? Bc they ARE the same recipe! =)
