Method

* Making the mask is easy. First blend a half unpeeled cucumber until it becomes a watery paste.
* Next, pour this paste through a strainer, so as to make it more consistent, by getting rid of any solid bits, including seeds.
* Now all you have to do is apply the paste to your face, after you have washed it. Let the mask sit for 15 minutes.
* Once done, wash the face again with regular water and pat it dry.
* You can also add two tablespoons of aloe vera gel to the cucumber mixture before you apply it on the face.
