Note when applying cucumber mask
Not too abusive
But like all natural masks, you should only apply cucumber mask, fresh milk no more than 3 times / week. Because cucumber or fresh milk both contain acid compounds, the abuse of beauty from these materials will cause the skin to lose its natural protective oils, become weak before the outside agents, from which it is easy to irritation, redness, itching, sunburn…
One more note, I see quite a lot of women in the process of beauty taking advantage of watching movies, surfing facebook … and even oversleeping, not removing the mask, cleaning the skin. This is not good for skin health.
Similar to other parts of the body, after a long day of work, the skin needs to be provided with vitamins and minerals as well as relaxation, rest to regenerate cells, restore vitality.
Apply to face no more than 20 minutes
And you should only apply a cucumber mask daily for 15-20 minutes is sufficient, avoid making the skin “suffocate”, clogged pores, acne prone as well as hindering the process of production, development new cell. You should note the time for the best effect offline!
Clean the skin before applying
To ensure effective, safe, you need to choose fresh, green and young cucumbers. Before applying cucumber mask daily or any other type of mask, do not skip the step of cleansing and drying your skin! This step is quite important to remove dirt, bacteria build up, help open pores, skin better absorb vitamins and minerals.
Check for irritation
And although cucumber masks are inherently benign, friendly to most skin types, you should also try the irritation of the skin when exposed to this material. The test is very simple, you just need to use thinly sliced cucumber to cover the skin of your hands, so that it will take time to see what happens, if there is no reaction, then apply it on your face.
Don’t forget to apply sunscreen
In the process of daily masking cucumber beauty, the skin is now regenerating new cells should be quite “weak” before the outside harmful agents, especially very easy to catch the sun – one of the causes skin causes darkening, melasma …
Therefore, make sure you protect your skin by applying sunscreen 30 minutes before going outside, using a mask, face mask and sunglasses!
