Is your skin dull and tired-looking? We hear you; dull skin is basically dead skin cells and unless you do something to actively remove the ones that don’t fall off naturally, you’re going to end up with dull skin.
There are a bunch of reasons why your skin is looking lifeless including hormone levels fluctuating, sun damage, stress, lack of sleep and the list goes on.
Luckily, going back to youthful, glowing, and healthy skin doesn't mean you have to spend a lot of money in pricey treatments. Most of the time, we tend to forget that the solution could be right in front of us, at home. You should always consider a natural, drug-free option first. So, for this fantastic, powerful and effective homemade face mask, all you'll be needing is: cucumber and yogurt -both of which you probably already have in your kitchen.
Why it works? Cucumber is cooling for the skin. It replenishes and rejuvenates dull skin with its antioxidants. It also improves complexion and reduces swelling.
It just so happens that cucumber is not only great on salads, smoothies or infused water; it has high water content which means it refreshes and re-hydrates your skin and makes it plump and youthful.
It also has vitamin C and other antioxidants that fight free radicals and prevent premature aging signs, like wrinkles, fine lines and dark spots.
Believe it or not, cucumber is also a mild astringent that helps shrink enlarged pores. That way it instantly improves your complexion, but also it prevents future formation of acne and blackheads.
Combined with yogurt, this mask is one of the most cooling, soothing and refreshing face masks. It combines all the benefits of cucumber for skin with exfoliating and rejuvenating properties of yogurt.
Now you know it, next time your skin is looking dull and tired -treat yourself to a homemade cucumber face mask.
Grate the cucumber and add the yogurt to it. Beat well.
Apply it to your face and neck.
Leave it on for 5 minutes until it dries and washes it off with cold water.
