Why Cucumbers?

I seriously never knew why people put cucumbers over there eyes while they got a facial or something. I've always thought it was a tad strange. Okay, even though I know now why its done, I still think its a tad strange. Sorry. Anywhos for those of you, like me, that have never figured this stuff out; people put cucumbers over there eyes to reduce puffiness. Cucumbers apparently sooth skin and arecalming and relaxing. I don't know about you but I never really thought about cucumbers as relaxing. I personally hate the taste of them...sigh*

But then of course there is those of you that might love and adore cucumbers. If so you might like to know that they have more uses then satisfying you taste buds. You can use them to soothe your tired puffy eyes or you can make a cucumber toner!

Okay, so you wanna know how to make the cucumber toner? You'll need:

Cucumbers1/2 Cucumber with peel, and it needs to be chopped

3 tablespoons witch hazel

2 tablespoons distilled water

It's really easy to make. You'll just have to dump all the ingredients into a blender or a food processor and blend them until they area until they are all smooth. The mixture will probably have some solids so in order to remove them just pour the mixture thru a fine-mesh sieve. If you want the toner to last longer, which you probably do, make sure to keep it i the refrigerator. Wondering how to apply it? Well, just put a little bit of the toner on your face using a nice clean cotton ball!

There you go. Now the puffiness shall disappear....hopefully :)
