This months DIY truly got messy and left me green faced (image proof below), all in the name of using food on your face to cleanse and freshen. With cooling cucumber and thick avocado in this mask, including cleansing honey and yogurt, you’ll likely have all ingredients in your refrigerator and you will feel cooler just lathering this onto your warm face.
Summer heat means sweating and layers of greasy sunscreen and when you have natural oil slick skin it can just feel like an oil rig needs to be set up right on your forehead. Especially living in densely populated cities where getting home can mean you get into a stifling tube or bus and then walk down a busy street with countless cars whizzing past.
Or at least thats how it can feel when you find yourself cooling down in a cold shower only to be hot enough for another cold shower by the time you’ve changed. Or just laying down to go to sleep can have you wishing someone had handed you a popsicle to hug while drifting off to sleep.
Never being a true girly girl I have never in fact had a facial and with uber sensitive skin I’m not inclined to be tempted either so face masks are almost a staple. Usually lathering one on from Lush and their natural ingredients, there is almost no cheaper form to feel better or treat your skin nicer than a face mask.
So I found this great little recipe that you lather on and allow to cool and refresh you for 15 minutes all in the name of nicer skin. Not too difficult when the ingredients are usual summer staples and it can be whipped up in 2 minutes flat.

2 tablespoons cucumber
