How To Make Your Own Cucumber Face Mask: The 7 Best Recipes

Cucumbers have long been a staple of every healthy salad for the simple reasons that they’re delicious and good for you. But you don’t have to eat cucumbers all day to get the wrinkle-fighting, skin-smoothing benefits that they have to offer. Just placing raw cucumber on your skin, or mixing it with other ingredients to create a cucumber face mask, can yield some excellent results.

Why Are Cucumbers So Beneficial For Your Skin?

Cucumber is great when applied to your skin for the same reasons that it’s so good for your body when you eat it.

  • It’s packed full of antioxidants.
  • It’s loaded with anti-inflammatories.
  • It contains beneficial nutrients such as vitamins A, B1, C, biotin, and potassium.

Cucumber also:

  • Lightens.
  • Brightens.
  • Hydrates.
  • Tones.

And that’s really only the tip of the iceberg, so to speak. Cucumber really is a wonderful addition to your skincare routine. Here are the seven best cucumber face mask recipes just for you.

1) Cold Cucumber Compress

The nice thing about cucumber is that it doesn’t require any processing or preparation to be a useful tool in the fight against wrinkles. Just cut off a few slices and you’re good to go.

That’s right, a cold cucumber compress is an effective way to fight small wrinkles when they first appear. And don’t worry, a compress is just a fancy name for something you put on your skin to decrease inflammation. In this case, it’s a cucumber slice!

Cold Cucumber Compress Instructions

  1. Cut 2 thin ¼ to ½ inch slices off of the end of a cucumber.
  2. Place the slices in the refrigerator for fifteen minutes, or in the freezer for five.
  3. Sit or lie down so that the part of your body where you will apply the compress is parallel with the floor.
  4. Place the cold cucumbers on your skin and relax.
  5. Keep the cucumbers on your skin for fifteen minutes.

2) Cucumber Juice Face Mask

Even the juice (or water) from a fresh cucumber can be used to combat sagging skin and the signs of aging. Here’s how to harness the power of cucumber juice to keep your face, neck, and décolleté looking their best.

Cucumber Juice Face Mask Instructions

  1. Peel a large cucumber, and then cut it into small slices.
  2. Place the slices in a blender or food processor.
  3. Purée the cucumber until you’ve created a watery paste.
  4. Pour the puréed cucumber through a strainer to separate the water from any solid material.
  5. Squeeze the remaining solid material with your hands to recover the rest of the juice.
  6. Wash your face and neck with warm water and an oil-free cleanser to remove makeup. This preps the skin for the mask by opening your pores.
  7. Apply the cucumber juice to your skin and let sit for fifteen minutes.
  8. When the fifteen minutes are up, wash your face with cool water and pat your skin dry with a soft, clean towel.

Your skin will feel tighter and healthier with just one treatment.

Here’s how to use a cucumber mash face mask for powerful healing.

Cucumber Mash Face Mask Instructions

  1. Cut off ¼ of a cucumber and place it in a blender.
  2. Blend the cucumber until it’s slightly chunky. If you don’t have a blender, you can mash the cucumber with a fork.

  4. Apply the cucumber mash directly to the skin on your face, neck.
  5. Let the mask sit for fifteen minutes.
