Healthy & refreshing snack: cucumber salad.

The facial cleanser that works well in a scrumptious salad! 

Cucumber slices often serve as revitalizing eyelid covers and wrinkle removers, in home and spas everywhere. Many skin-care products contain, or are derived from things found on trees, in the earth, on farms, counter tops, and fridges.

Tip when making this salad: after slicing, keep the remaining cucumber to use as facial toner afterwards.

1. Wash and thinly slice cucumber. Save two edges for face toning.

2. Sprinkle a lemon, vinaigrette or dash of caper stock all around. Add a tiny bit of black pepper, salt, fresh herbs (parsely, thyme, basil, scotch bonnet peppers), salad seasoning (poppy & sesame seeds), and splash on some sesame oil. Stir gently.

3. Place in a bowl, get a fork, and enjoy.

Afterwards, wash your face. Remove the cucumber edges you’ve stored in the fridge (after making the salad), wipe your entire face with the cool, light green interior, and leave on.

Refreshing!
