Today, I am going to show a fun yet useful DIY beauty recipe. I am sure a lot of ladies here use rose water or cucumber eye pads either to relax, keep away dark circles or to just refresh eyes. I usually use cotton pads dipped in rose water as that’s the easiest way and also since either I feel too lazy or it isn’t feasible to peel and grind cucumber juice daily to use it over the cotton pads, but I have found a way to deal with this. If you don’t want to invest a lot of time and yet make your own natural cucumber soaked eye pads, I have a recipe for you ladies.
- 1 medium sized cucumber.
- Rectangular or oval thick layered cosmetic cotton pads.
- Plain water/rose water.
- Zip lock pouch.
How To Prepare:
Okay, so now let’s get started:
Peel and dice the cucumber.
Blend it in a mixer till it turns into a fine paste.
Next, add plain water or rose water (I have added plain water). Also, make sure you don’t make it too runny or watery. I have used 2 teaspoons of water for one medium-sized cucumber.
Now, take your cotton pads and pour this cucumber juice over it. (I have put 2 teaspoons of juice over 1 cotton pad. Also, I haven’t strained the juice but if you want you can).
Now, if you feel the cotton pad has soaked more juice and is dripping off, gently press it to remove excess juice. Do not press it too hard and do not squeeze.
Now, place these cucumber-soaked cotton pads in a zip lock pouch and zip it. Make sure you don’t leave air in the zip lock pouch.
Next, place this pouch in a freezer.
Now, these cucumber-soaked cotton pads can be used for 3-4 days once made. All you need to do is, before you use these pads, just take them out and thaw them for 10 minutes or so and when they turn soft and watery, just place them over your eyes for 10-15 minutes or you can also leave them overnight if you wish to.
Wasn’t that easy and fun, do try it out and let me know if you like this idea.
