Full Answer

  1. Collect the ingredients

    To make a cucumber mask, you need one cucumber, ¼ cup of plain yogurt, 2 tablespoons of honey and 1 cup of oats. Slice the cucumber.

  2. Blend the cucumber and yogurt

    Add the cucumber slices and ¼ cup of yogurt to a blender. Blend until the mixture achieves the consistency of a paste. Then place the paste in a bowl.

  3. Add the honey and the oats to the mixture

    Stir in the 2 teaspoons of honey and the 1 cup of oats. For a thinner facial mask, use a smaller amount of oats. Once stirred, the paste should be quite thick.

  4. Blend again

    Put the mixture back in the blender to chop the oats and achieve a more even texture.

  5. Freeze the mask

    Place the mixture in the freezer, and leave it there for 10 to 15 minutes. This helps to solidify the paste.

  6. Apply to the face

    Spread the mixture over the surface of the face. Leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes. Then wash it off with warm water and reveal newly fresh and beautiful skin.
