Homemade Cucumber and Aloe Vera Eye Mask: Do It Yourself

Homemade Cucumber and Aloe Vera Eye Mask:  Do It Yourself

By Himaja T.

A big hello to gorgeous ladies,

My name is Himaja and I am new on IMBB. How is everybody? I have been a silent reader of this blog for a while.  Today, I am here to share with you all a super cool eye mask. I have bad under eye circles, probably due to my genetics and my eyes gets strained easily.  So, I always keep eye masks handy.  I have previously used Basicare Mini Eye Mask, but it didn’t live up to my expectations.  So, I thought why not make my own?

I got this idea when I saw my grandmother apply water packets to treat her legs after getting joint replacement done. She stayed in our home for more than ten days and that’s how I got an idea to make an eye mask.  So, here’s how you can make it:

Ingredients:

Homemade cucumber eye mask

  • Half of one cucumber.
  • Half of one potato.
  • Half of one tomato.
  • Half of a lemon.
  • Aloe vera.
  • Green tea – 1 teaspoon.
  • One vitamin E capsule.
  • Distilled water- 1 tablespoon (I prefer using distilled water whenever I make masks).
  • Two bags as shown below.

Procedure:

Step 1: Bring water to boil and add green tea leaves, leave aside.

Step2:  Grate cucumber, potato, tomato, lemon, aloe vera either separately or together whichever way you like. I like to grate them together because we are going to mix them anyway.  You could also put them all in a mixer.

Step 3:  Mix the grated mixture with green tea.

Step 4:  Add 1 vitamin E capsule.

Step 5:  Pour this mixture into small plastic covers as shown below.  All you need is to pour in 2 teaspoons or you can fill 1/4th of the cover.

Step 6:  Take a platter and carefully settle the plastic covers on it and refrigerate them for 2 hours and voila, they are ready to use.

I make around 10 of these masks at one go, 2 for my mum, 2 for my dad, and the remaining 6 for me 😀 I not only place them on my eyes, but also use them on my face, neck, hands, etc.

These eye masks soothe tired and puffy eyes, great for summers.  You can also place these bags on your face and they instantly freshen up your skin.

Here are some tips:

1.  If you are lazy like me and do not have the time to grate so many ingredients, you can just fill the covers with water and add a  dash of lemon to it.  You can make them in the morning when you are rushing to work and refrigerate them, so you can use them when you return home after a tiring day.

2.  You can store these bags for up to 4 days in the refrigerator.  Since you are using and storing them back in the fridge, wash them before every use.

4. These bags can also be used to reduce puffy eyes and to treat puffy face in the mornings.

You can also make ice cubes by blending the ingredients together, but it’s a messy thing once the ice cubes start melting. You can also use the mixture directly on the face and under the eyes to get rid of dark circles.

  1. Welcome to IMBB Himaja….I am gonna try this, my eyes have become strained due to prolonged screen time *cry*

  2. Hey! These sound like great ingredients for the delicate under eye area, but does using plastic bags stop the actual benefits from soaking into the skin?

  3. Hey girl 🙂 Can I just skip the tomatoes or would it make a significant difference? I’m allergic to tomatoes, can’t touch them when they’re cut or consume them.. so I was wondering?

    1. Abinaya, I think you can replace tomatoes. Anyway, the ingredients are in a plastic bag, they won’t seep into the skin

  4. A real fab DIY mask.. It looks all so rich too .. I mean .. very pampering 😀

    It sounds very promising and refreshing …

    Thanks for sharing and thanks to your grandmother 😉

  5. Hi Himaja,
    Not to dampen your enthusiasm, but this is a complete waste of time, effort and ingredients. For any mask to work, the ingredients have to TOUCH your skin. No mask will work if you’re putting it in a plastic pouch – you might as well put in plain water (or any kind of wet pulp, really), chill the pouches and use them. What you’re doing here is simply putting chilled plastic pouches on your skin. Instead, chilled wet teabags work much better, because the bags are porous, and allow the ingredients (and the benefits) to seep through. Keep up the enthusiasm though – good luck on IMBB.
    Regards
