According to June Jacobs, cucumber extract contains ascot acid and civic acid which have an astringent effect on the skin, preventing water retention, helping to soothe the skin and reduce inflammation. It’s a perfect home remedy for a sunburn.
Try out this DIY mask after the sun kissed your for too long.
June Jacobs Reviving Cucumber Almond Masque (For all skin types)
- 1/2 Cucumber
- 1 tablespoon Almond Butter
Simply: combine in a blender and then apply to face and neck. Leave on for 5-10 minutes and rinse off with warm water. Apply chilled cucumber slices to the eyes while the mask is on the face to help with puffing under the eye area.
Of course June Jacobs makes a line of popular cucumber products: cleanser, toner, body balm, and shower gel. Their publicist used to send me a few things here and there. I haven’t tried a product of theirs I haven’t loved.Tweet this!
