As the weather gets muggier by the day, I’m drawn to cool, crisp and fresh beauty picks. And let’s face it, what can be more refreshing and invigorating than cucumber and mint? While they’re great additions to a Caipiroska, imagine how these two super cooling ingredients will feel and smell against sun blasted skin. Besides smelling heavenly, cucumbers soothe, depuff and soften skin almost instantly while peppermint clears up oil attacks and blemishes with magical (tingling) efficiency almost like Houdini escaping his handcuffs.
So here are my top six favorite cucumber and mint inspired products that pay homage to these two summer veggies. Best enjoyed on a sweltering day, with—what else—an icy tumbler of Caipiroska.
Face wipes are meant to remove dirt and grime on-the-go, right? But what if we told you that this beauty does all that but zips zits too? Peppermint has strong antibacterial properties and these Aloe Vera and Mint infused wipes clear up blemishes faster than you can say acne! Plus, the subtle tingle really wakes up your skin.
Nothing will give you more joy on a hot summer’s day than the sight of this green concoction in a jar. Instantly soothing tortured, irritated skin, it packs a triple whammy. The Multani Mitti is infused with Vitamin C to reduce inflammation and prevent water retention while the Cucumber cools off skin on contact. Pop into the fridge for an extra-refreshing boost.
Looking for freshness on the go? Enter these genius wipes enriched with Cucumber and Mint Extract that cleanse skin, leaving it mega hydrated. What we really love though is the sharp of hint of freshness— like a tall glass of cucumber water in sweltering heat. Oh, and they are soothing, soft, and safe for super sensitive skin. Win-win.
This one’s a must if your skin looks red and angry all through summer. This pore tightening, skin cooler is a fine blend of Bio Cucumber, Corriander, Nutgalls, Berberry, Peppermint Oil and Himalyan waters. Dab on a clean face with soaked cotton pads in the morning and evening to keep your complexion calm and in perfect pH balance. Yoga for the skin we say!
More than just your average face wipe, this one is designed to cleanse your face by removing excess oil, grease and sweat. Infused with the goodness of Cucumber, it can be used to swipe away exhaustion from a brutal boot camp class or just simply to wake up your skin after a long flight. Not to forget, you can also use these to get rid of that smokey eye too, minus the irritation. What's not to love!
The new definition of cool as a cucumber! This luxurious blend of cleansers and essential oils triples up as a body wash, shower gel or bubble bath. Made from the best natural, active plant-based extracts of Green Tea and Cucumber, this paraben, soap and mineral oil-free formula will leave your skin delightfully fragrant and fresh for hours.
You’ll shelve your regular rose water spray once you’ve tried this skin quencher and refresher. Contains naturally extracted Mint and Cucumber to hydrate, tone and nourish skin to keep it feeling soft and supple all day long. What’s more, it draws out dirt and deep cleans pores too.
