Green Goo in the name of beauty!

My precious daughter had this book about fun things to do with your mom. In this book are some really neat ideas and some crazy ideas as well!

Yesterday she had a crazy idea. She wanted to try facials again by making "a cooling cucumber mask." So we made a special trip to the store to get our supplies!

You need half of a cucumber and 2 Tbsp of plain yogurt.
Chop up the cucumber and blend with the yogurt in a blender.
Next let it thicken up a little in the refrigerator. We let our's thicken up while we burned through an episode of "Fuller House".
Then using a make up brush paint the mask on to your face and let it dry for 10 minutes.
This is what I was picturing...
This was the reality....
Callie kept saying, "Mom it looks like you have broccoli on your face." Newsflash kid, so do you...

After you leave the mask on for 10 minutes wipe off with a warm wash cloth and let your face air dry.

So the verdict...It smells nice, much better than the one we tried last year, see the post here. 
It was positively freezing outside, so a "cooling" mask probably was not the way to go on a snowy day. I can see trying this again, after a hot day in the sun. After we were all cleaned of the green goo, my skin felt much softer and looked less puffy. So I guess it worked!
