Cucumber Lemon Water is refreshing, cool, and loaded with health benefits! Don’t save this drink for summer, drink it all year long!
I don’t get to the spa very often, but facials are one of my most favorite things. I used to do my own facials when I was in my early twenties. You know, back when I had zero expendable income. I had an elaborate routine. I would start simply by washing my face. Then I would apply an egg mask. I’d use the yolks if my face was dry and the whites if my face was oily.
Once the egg mask was washed off, I would heat a small saucepan with water and chamomile tea. When the water was simmering, I would place a towel over my head, and place my face over the tea and allow the steam to open up all my pores.
The last step was to apply face lotion and rest with cucumbers over my eyes. Like I said, it was elaborate. It was simple and it was cheap too. I’m not 100% sure how it affected my skin, but it made me feel pretty good about myself, so that was something.
Cucumbers resting on eyes has always been synonymous with the spa. That mostly has to do with the hydrating quality that cucumbers have. They are cool and soothing and can add moisture to our thirsty skin
