Magic and natural cucumber mask

(For any other language use the translator---->)

Here you are a little recipe I love, perfect to keep us beautiful even during the months of work/school.
Yeah, It's a cucumber mask! Cucumber has the magic properities of lighten dark circles, decongest and deflate eyelids, smooth wrinkles and even depurates oily skin (super suitable for this no-stop-work months)!

You need (ingredients for 2-3 masks)
2 cucumbers
honey (that hydrates the skin)
natural yoghurt (full of lattic acid that helps to fight the skin aging)

Tools:
A table spoon
A tea spoon
A knife
A parer
A mixer

1. First you have to cut the cucumbers at the ends and peel them with the parer.
2.Then cut the cucumbers in bits (Doesn't matter if they aren't perfect!)
3.When you're done you have to whip the bits with the mixer (If you haven't got one, you can cut the cucumbers in tiny tiny bits and then mash them with a fork.)
4.Finally you have to add 2-3 tea spoons of honey and 2 table spoons of yoghurt and mix all the ingredients together.
And you're done!
I put on this super mask all over my face (even on the eyelids) for about 15 minutes, (during which I have a coffee break or read a book) than I rinse off with cold water.
Following this recipe you'll get a quite fluid mask, so if you want a less fluid stiffness you can put the mask in a colander and squeeze it with a spoon. So you'll get the cucumber mask in one side and in the other a 'cucumber water' perfect for eye packs after a stressful day!
I preserve the mask in the fridge for 5 days (max. a week), while I put the cucumber water in the freezer, so it will preserve for more days!

Do you have a special, super mask, too?
Please, share! 

Bacio.
