Naturally beautiful with cucumber

Cucumber not only has a calming and healing effect, in combination with lemon juice it has a stimulating and astringent effect. That is why cucumber is often used in beauty products, especially for oily skin.


Cucumber water against sunburn

Due to its refreshing effect, cucumber is very suitable for soothing burned skin. The cucumber water soothes, heals and prevents itching. However, it can only be kept in the refrigerator for a few days.

  • Peel and puree half a cucumber.
  • Use a thin muslin or linen cloth to squeeze out the juice.
  • Vigorously whisk two teaspoons of glycerol and one tablespoon of elderberry into the cucumber water.
  • Pour the mixture into a clean, dry bottle and store it in the refrigerator.
  • Apply the mixture liberally to the burned skin.



Cucumber cleansing

  • Mix 40ml soya oil with three tablespoons of oat flour into a thick paste.
  • Add one tablespoon of ground almonds and stir well.
  • Place the cleaning agent in a clean, dry container. This product has a shelf life of six months.
  • Before use, mix one teaspoon of the cleaning product with one teaspoon of cucumber juice, which you obtain by sifting a cucumber through a linen cloth.
