Face mask with cucumber and yoghurt

Cucumber and yoghurt mask:
This has always been used to refine and tone the skin. Many cosmetics claim it as a vital ingredient.
1/4th cucumber
2 tbsp of yoghurt
Finely mash and sift the cucumber and mix it with 2 tablespoonfuls of yoghurt. By making a paste you can apply it on the face for 20-25 minutes. If you want something stronger you can try this.
Juice of 1/4th cucumber
1 egg white
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp vodka
Mash and liquidize the cucumber, strain the mixture to give you the juice. Beat the egg white and slowly add the lemon and cucumber juices to it. Mix well and use it on your face. If your face is greasy, add the vodka. Apply this mixture on your face for 20-30 minutes and relax with cucumber eye pads on the eyes. Wash off with cold water and gently pat dry.

    f you are allergic to yogurt, dairy products or alpha and beta hydroxy acids, avoid using yogurt face masks. After application, you may notice a slight tingly feeling. However, if you experience burning or pain of any kind, wash off the mask and consult with your physician before reapplying. These symptoms may indicate an allergy or sensitivity to yogurt's active ingredients or live cultures.

    If your skin feels tight after washing off your yogurt mask, apply a noncomedogenic moisturizer to hydrate and protect skin cells.

    If you have skin allergies to yogurt/ AHA/ BHA, please do not use this recipe. If you put the yogurt on your face and experience a burning sensation over the cheeks, please wash off immediately!
