Cucumber Treatments for Sensitive Skin

 These facials and masks are perfect for sensitive skin. Chill the mixture in your fridge before use to make it especially soothing.   The fresh extracts from cucumbers have been shown to have both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and they are rich in Vitamin C, which is excellent for the skin.
