Cucumber Mask for Sensitive Skin
Cucumbers contain nutrients like vitamin C and caffeic acid, which help soothe the skin and can reduce swelling.
Aloe Vera Gel
Although the juice and gel of aloe vera can be consumed, aloe vera is not usually considered a food. But the gel of this desert plant is a super-beneficial substance, especially for sun-exposed skin. You don't have to buy bottles of aloe from the store, though. The plant itself is hydrating, healing, and very easy to use. Simply buy a small aloe vera plant, keep it in a sunny window, and water it when it gets dry. After you cleanse your skin in the evening, break off a small piece of the plant, open it up to find the gel, and pat it onto your skin.
Remember that no matter how nourishing and revitalizing these homemade skin care products are for your skin, nothing can completely undo the damage of too much sun, so always wear sunscreen when you’re going outside.
