Cool As A Cucumber – By Fashion Model Jill De Jong

July 24, 2013 by Jill de Jong

Are you a bit sunburned after a fun weekend? I did! After a day out and about, paddleboarding my skin was asking for some love. Did you know that cucumber is a gift of nature for sunburned skin? Besides the cooling effect, it hydrates, soothes and cleanses your skin as well.  It might as well be one of the easiest and cheapest remedy’s; I made my own cucumber mask. It feels so good, I highly recommend it. Thinly slice an organic cucumber and place it on your face and other sunburned areas. (it’s best to lay down otherwise they keep falling of.) Close your eyes and  put some slices on your eyelids, it reduces puffiness as well. Leave it on for 5-10 minutes. Hope your feeling as refreshed as I do :)

Enjoy the heat, and stay cool!
