Cucumber facemasks for all skin types

Cucumber has the same PH level with skin and keeps the right balance. It is moisturizing, astringent, fights wrinkles, calms irritations and reduces red spots. You can easily find it during spring and spring and summer, so why not enjoy all its benefits by making a mask suited for your skin type?

 

Vitamins for any skin type

A mask made of blended fresh parsley, a tablespoon of grated cucumber and a little yogurt is like a cocktail of vitamins for your skin. Mix the ingredients well, and after you get the right texture apply it on your face and neck. Let it rest on your face for 15 minutes and then rinse with warm water.

Banana and honey for dry skin

Cucumber mask is not only appropriate for oily skin, although cucumber is an ingredient often used in these products. If you combine half of cucumber with half a banana, a tablespoon of honey and lemon juice in a blender, you will get a very moisturizing mask, good for the dry skin. Warm the honey before integrating it in the mixture and apply it on the face and neck, avoiding the sensitive eye area. Just relax for 30 minutes and then rinse and apply a moisturizer.

Yoghurt for oily skin

A mixture of cucumber, half of a small yogurt and a tablespoon of milk powder will give you the ideal composition for oily skin. Cucumber is astringent and refreshing, and yogurt is soothing and easy exfoliates skin, calms and purifies. Just keep it on the face 15 minutes avoiding the eye area.
