    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.

      after juicing there will be no more seeds left, as they will be filtred out. Can apply any time of the day.

    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/

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