Cucumber Beauty Diary

My daily regime regime is in the knowing that beauty starts from the inside and reflects outside, I therefore start with a daily doze of my flat tummy water and many call it detox water.

- 6 cups filtered water 

- 1 Tbsp grated ginger 

- 1 cucumber, sliced (low calories, high fiber, maintains body alkaline)

- 1 lemon, sliced (high fiber, helps suppress food cravings, helps body eliminate waste products, aids weight loss)

- 1/3 cup mint leaves

Infuse these overnight and drink all day.

Benefits of detox / flat tummy water: Balance hormones. Increase energy and circulation. Improve digestion. Strengthen immune system. Lowers cancer risk. Improves concentration and sleep quality. Clearer skin. Regular bowel movements. Cleanses the liver. Detoxify organs. Reduces Stress.  Increase sex drive (you didn't see that one coming!)

Cucumber Beauty Regime:

Cucumber and mint sugar scrub  >> 1 cup sugar. 1/4 cup sunflower oil. 5 drops of peppermint and cucumber essential oils. 1/4 crushed cucumber.

Use this to scrub your face to rid of dead skin cells once a week.

Cooling Cucumber Toner:

This toner is very mild and works well for all skin types because we all know that cucumber is great for soothing and softening skin because it has the same pH as healthy skin. This toner  will best be your choice for calming and tightening your skin when you wake up feeling puffy.

1/2 cucumber with its peels. Please chop it
3 tablespoons witch hazel
2 tablespoons distilled water

Put the ingredients in a blender / food processor until smooth. Pour the mixture through a sieve to smooth it out.

Store the toner into a clean bottle with tight-fitting lid and store in the refrigerator for a longer shelf life. This usually lasts for several weeks.

Apply the toner to your face using only clean cotton ball.
