This cucumber face mask exfoliates your skin, brightens it and improves radiance. It works on all skin types and will leave your skin feeling smoother, softer and more refreshed after the first use.

What you'll need to make your cucumber face mask

Half a cucumber (thoroughly washed)

A quarter cup of full-fat milk

One tablespoon of honey

One tablespoon of brown sugar

A blender

Making and using the mask

Blend the cucumber into a fine puree and set aside. In another bowl mix the honey, brown sugar and milk together into a thin paste. Stir into the cucumber puree and mix well to combine all the ingredients.

Apply the mask onto a freshly washed face and neck. Rub gently in small circles and leave on for about 20 minutes. Then rinse off with warm water and pat skin dry.

How this cucumber face mask works

The brown sugar and lactic acid in the milk, exfoliate your skin leaving it looking brighter while the fat in the milk, moisturises and softens your skin. The honey cleanses and softens your skin further while the cucumber acts as an astringent to cleanse and refine pores as well as refresh your skin.
