SOOTHING EYE GEL
Here is an easy to make and fast working, soothing eye gel. Its great for sensitive skin and reduces puffiness with ease. Its also completely natural so great for the delicate eye area and no irritations. Cucumber and aloe vera have healing properties so its a nice relaxing treat for tired eyes.
WHAT U NEED:
HALF A SMALL CUCUMBER
3 OZ ALOE VERA
A BLENDER / JUICER
CHEESECLOTH / MUSLIN / TEA STRAINER
AIRTIGHT CONTAINER / JAR
SLICE THE CUCUMBER AND BLEND UNTIL JUICE IS VISIBLE
OVER A MEDIUM SIZE BOWL, PLACE CLOTH TAUT OR STRAINER AND EMPTY THE CONTENTS ONTO
STRAIN THE REMAINING JUICE FROM THE CLOTH/STRAINER INTO THE BOWL
MIX IN THE ALOE VERA WELL AND REFRIGERATE
LEAVE OVERNIGHT TO COOL AND APPLY TO THE DELICATE EYE AREA AVOIDING THE LIDS
KEEP STORED IN THE FRIDGE FOR USE WHENEVER DESIRED
This is a great pick-me-up after a long night or a hard morning after. If you suffer from puffy eyes then this is ideal for you. There are some seriously expensive eye gels out there but this is definitely one to try before raking out a fortune! You may decide to stick with it and it’ll save you the cash 😉
SOOTHING FACE MASK
This is a great mask for anyone at any time since it is calming and cooling so feels great, especially if you have a breakout or flare-up. I even recommend this for Rosacea since its all natural ingredients. The cucumber is soothing, works as a toner and helps reduce pores. The honey is a great moisturiser without being oily and has antibacterial properties to reduce spots so a great all-rounder. The lemon (optional) exfoliates, combats breakouts and lightens marks and freckles. It has natural vitamin C so improves skin tone and texture.
*Remember to wear sunscreen if applying lemon to the skin as it is photosensitive
JUICE OF 1/2 A LEMON (OPTIONAL)
1-2 TSPS PURE HONEY
PEEL THE CUCUMBER AND SLICE
BLEND IN A BLENDER OR JUICER
TRANSFER THE PUREE INTO A CONTAINER
ADD 5-8 DROPS OF LEMON / 2-3 DROPS FOR SENSITIVE SKIN ( OPTIONAL )
ADD THE LIQUID HONEY / MELT UNTIL LIQUID AND MIX WELL
APPLY TO A CLEAN FACE USING A COTTON PAD
GENTLY MASSAGE INTO THE SKIN
CAN BE USED ON THE BODY ALSO
LEAVE ON FOR 15 MINS AND WASH OFF WITH WARM WATER
STORE THE REST IN AN ICE TRAY IN THE FREEZER FOR FUTURE USE
IF YOU CHOOSE TO USE THE MIXTURE FROM FROZEN YOU CAN JUST RUN WATER ON THE ICE CUBE AND RUB IT DIRECTLY ONTO THE SKIN; THIS WILL AID IN REDUCING PORES AND TIGHTENING THE SKIN FOR A WIDE AWAKE AND CLEAR COMPLEXION. IF U CAN HANDLE IT!!
Hope you Enjoy!
