DIY Cucumber Eye Pads Recipe

An all-natural DIY cucumber eye treatment remedy for dark circles, puffy & tired eyes. The eye pads, sealed in ziplock bags, keep well in the freezer. To use, thaw them for 10 minutes before applying to the eyes area.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cucumber

You also need

  • cotton pads
  • fruit juice extractor
  • ziplock bags

Directions:

  1. Using a fruit juice extractor, extract the juice of a cucumber.
  2. Pour the cucumber juice onto a deep plate. Soak cotton pads with cucumber juice and gently squeeze out excess liquid. Repeat until all the juices are used up.
  3. Store cucumber pads one layer (no overlapping) inside sandwich ziplock bags. Store sealed ziplock bags in the freezer.
  4. To use, thaw the eye pads for 10 minutes before applying to eyes area for 10-15 minutes.

  1. Hehe the last photo is way TOO cute! :D This is a great “recipe” wiffy. Love that you introduced a beauty post amongst your cooking recipes. You have the best, most creative ideas. Definitely want to try these sometime!

  2. store in freezer? not in fridge?

  3. is there any other way to do this without a fruit juice extractor?

  4. the recipes you have presented in a very good way thanks a lot for sharing it.

  5. Hi thanx for such a easy & cheap recipe….. i have spend so much money but no result now i i have tried ur recipe its realy working & its natural…thanx again….

  6. Hi, thanks for uploading this awesome DIY eye mask. Wanted to ask, is it a must to place them in the freezer or leaving them in the fridge is okay? Also, how long should the cotton pads (with the cucumber juice) be kept before it’s not really that effective anymore? For example, if I’ve had them in the freezer for more than 2 weeks, and plan to use them only after 2 weeks, will it be less effective?

    • Hi, I personally think that they last a long time in the freezer (months!) without losing their effectiveness. But if you are keeping in the fridge, I will recommend using within a few days.

    • That’s great! Thanks a lot for the tip!(: Can’t wait to try it out today.

  7. the juice is with or without seeds?
    can apply it any time or must in morning?

  8. you meant blend the whole cucumber ( including skin and seeds ) and filter out the juice?

    • I am using a fruit juice extractor, not blender, so the machine can filter out everything and only give me the juice. For that, I only need to cut the cucumber to large chunks. If you are using a blender, peel and discard the cucumber skin. Cut to large chunks. Place in blender and process. Then extract the juice via a cheesecloth something similar to what I used in http://www.noobcook.com/soy-bean-milk/

  9. Using a coffee filter also works very well instead of a cheesecloth
