What You Need:
- 1 cucumber
- Half a cup of yogurt
- 1 spoon of milk powder
What To Do:First of all, you want to peel your cucumber and then cut it up into tiny little cubes. While you’re at it, you might as well get rid of the seeds too. When done, you want to put your pieces into a food processor or a blender. Add the yogurt. Add the milk powder. Then go ahead and blend away. You want to have a smooth and rather thick substance when done- nothing too thin or runny.

Washing your face and patting dry is definitely recommended before anything else. Then simply use your fingers to spread your homemade past evenly over your face and neck. Of course, you want to steer clear of the eye area. Let it sit for a good 10-15 minutes before you rinse. Cold water is the best. But if you simply must use warm, you should at least finish off with a splash of cold. Remember that cold water closes your pores and tightens your skin. Finally, pat dry. ALWAYS PAT DRY.
TIP: But if you don’t feel like mixing and matching, you can even use a cucumber all on its own. All you have to do is store it in the fridge over night. Peel it the next day. Chop, blend, then apply. Simple, yet soothing and effective.
