The cucumber and peppermint in this sugar scrub recipe will help restore the skin on your face to its original glow. Cucumber has been long recognized for its soothing and anti-aging benefits for the skin thanks to its high water content, vitamin C, and other antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds. Peppermint, on the other hand, has antimicrobial properties capable of clearing up skin breakouts, while its menthol creates a cooling sensation on the skin, leaving your face feeling fresh and clean.

  1. Place the cucumber in a food processor and blend until finely chopped and somewhat liquidy.(2 minutes)
  2. Transfer into a mixing bowl, add the sugar, coconut oil, and essential oil of peppermint. Mix well.(1 minute)
  3. Transfer the scrub into an air-tight container and store in the refrigerator.

Apply this cucumber mint scrub to wet face while taking a shower or a bath. Gently rub it on the skin in a circular motion, leave for a few minutes, then rinse with warm water. You may also use it on the rest of your body. It is best to use it within a week.
