Last month I shared a recipe for a Banana Mask, this week it's the turn of the cucumber. We all know that a slice of cucumber placed over the eye is supposed to help reduce puffiness - this mask will do that for your whole face. It's cooling, refreshing and helps to even skin tone. It's particularly well suited to mature skin, but can be used for all skin types.
Cucumber and Egg Mask
To make this you will need:
- 1 medium cucumber
- 3 tablespoons of cornflour
- 1 egg yolk
Chop and puree the cucumber. It looks like quite a lot of cucumber when it's chopped, but the cucumber will reduce in bulk as it's pureed. Add the egg yolk and stir to combine. Add the cornflour a bit at a time, stirring as you go, until you get a good spreadable consistency.
Apply to the face and neck. Leave for 10-15 minutes then rinse off with warm water.
Any unused mask will keep in the fridge for 2 days.
