Looking for a way to beat the summer heat and feel refreshed? Take a page out of Gucci and her daughter Petal's book for cooling under eye masks that are surprisingly effective yet easy to make. Using just a few ingredients that are rich in antioxidants and skin-soothing—like aloe vera, fresh cucumber, and Vitamin E—the result is a quick way to cool down, depuff, and relax! Follow along for their DIY remedy and try it yourself for a mini spa moment.
DIY Cooling Cucumber Eye Masks
Slightly adapted from Home Baked Bliss. Depending on how many eye masks are desired, the ingredient count can be revised.
18 organic round cotton pads (Gucci uses unbleached to compost)
- 1/2 organic cucumber (sliced)
Cut the cotton pad rounds in half to fit the under eye area.
Slice up half of a cucumber (leaving on the skin).
Blend the cucumber slices, aloe vera gel, and vitamin E oil.
Soak the cotton pads in the mixture and squeeze out excess.
Place the "masks" in freezer for 10-20 minutes.
Let them thaw before use and apply underneath the eye's lower lashline.
Relax for 10-15 minutes with the eye masks on and enjoy the cooling effect!
