Green Spa Treatments: Fresh From Your Kitchen

Tired of spending boku $$$ on fancy eye de-puffer creams that don't seem to measure up?

This recipe is one of my favorites, also one of the cheapest and easiest; you can whip this delight up in no time. Okay, I admit sometimes I wish I kept this stuff on hand in the fridge at all times... but really it's best when freshly made.

Works fabulously in conjunction with the organic rose and grape serum to treat fine lines and revitalize delicate, sensitive skin around the eye area.

Cool Cucumber Under Eye Mask
1/2 of a peeled cucumber
1t aloe vera gel
1 capsule of vitamin E

Place cucumber and aloe in blender. Poke vitamin E capsule with pin and squeeze liquid into the blender. Mix it up, transfer to container with tight cover, apply under eyes (also works as a facial mask if skin is puffy) Lie down and take a load off for 10 minutes. Gently remove with soft cloth.

Your cucumber eye concoction will keep in the fridge for a few days, but always best when made fresh!

What it Does
Cucumber is a mild astringent that helps to relieve puffiness. Aloe moisturizes and combats puffy, swollen skin. Vitamin E is a rich antioxidant.
