Cucumber Freshener

What you need: 

1 cucumber
witch hazel
fresh squeezed lemon juice for oily skin

What you do: 

Put cucumber in blender and puree. Put through a sieve or strainer. You should just have pure cucumber juice.
Add the same amount of witch hazel (I THINK witch hazel is ok!).
Add just a little bit of lemon juice for extra cleansing power.
This is an astringent to remove extra oil and dirt after you wash your face, or if you just got finished with some physical activity.

This is a great recipe :)

Witch hazel is actually pretty good; it reduces irritation and inflammation on the surface of the skin so it's also good for sunburn, insect bites, poison ivy, and sore muscles.
