Cucumber Milk Eye Mask - Becca Piastrelli

Hey there,

creative gal!

You’ve landed on a post I wrote a few years ago -
back when I was known as The Dabblist and was exploring all sorts of ways I could create beautiful things with my hands. It was a powerful time for me — awakening my creativity after suppressing it for so long — but this space has since evolved to reflect the woman I’m becoming.

Cucumber Milk Eye Mask

This simple yet effective mask is meant to hydrate and tighten skin while also diminishing puffiness.

I love the creamy consistency created by combining the cucumber and powdered milk and hello! there are only those two ingredients in this recipe. That just goes to show that nature knows best with her healing ingredients. I like to tell people, "If you can't eat it, then you shouldn't put it on your skin."

This delightful recipe encourages ritual in its application too - encouraging you to slow down from your busy day-to-day pace and take a moment to pamper your peepers.

Cucumber Milk Eye Mask

  • 2 tsp cucumber (peeled, seeded, and chopped small)
  • 1 tsp powdered milk

Using a mortar and pestle (or a fork in a shallow dish), mush the ingredients together until they form a thick paste. Put in the fridge for 30 minutes to chill and harden. If it gets too hard, you can add a few drops of water to thin it out.

To apply, close your eyes and lie down.

Apply the mixture to your entire eye area, including your lids.

Take some deep, cleansing breaths and lay there for 5-10 minutes.

Wash off with cool water.
