The summer heat is upon us so today I thought I would share a recipe to cool us down while working wonders on our skin (ie tired and puffy eyes). Today's Therapy Thursday is a Cooling Cucumber Mask by The Paleo Mama.
Ingredients 1 large cucumber 2 TBSP Unrefined Coconut Oil 1/4 cup Aloe Vera Gel 8 drops of Carrot Seed Essential Oil (optional)
Method Blend all ingredients together until all ingredients form a smooth cream. Transfer to ice cube tray and freeze. You might hold a bit back and pop it in the fridge so you can use your mask now!
Apply all around the eyes. Leave on for 10-15 minutes. It feels HEAVENLY! So refreshing-you can just feel the puffiness disappearing! If you are using the Carrot Seed oil be very careful-if it gets in your eyes it will burn. If the oil gets in your eyes, rinse out your eye with cool water immediately.
