Carrot Seed Oil and Cucumber Skin Rejuvenating Treatment

If your skin could use intense rejuvenation, then this is the ultimate skin-boosting face mask and under eye treatment. Tired, baggy eyes and dull, aging skin can always be improved by a skin rejuvenating treatment. While a day at the spa is a great way to treat your skin, it is not always an affordable option. Not to worry, homemade face masks with antioxidant-rich, anti-aging ingredients such as carrot seed oil, grapeseed oil, and refreshing, collagen-boosting cucumber have a lot to offer your complexion.

Carrot seed essential oil is the magic ingredient in this homemade face mask recipe for dry and mature skin. It supports skin healing, detoxifies, normalizes dry or oily skin, and helps with the formation of new, healthy skin cells. It is used in may skin care products to help fight wrinkles and keep the skin smooth. A source of vitamin A that the skin can absorb, it helps to revitalize after exposure to the sun.

Grapeseed oil is the base of this earthy skin rejuvenating treatment. It is packed with antioxidants, including procyanidolic oligomers, to help protect skin cells from damage and from environmental toxins. It is also one of the best natural solutions for dry skin. The fatty acids found in grapeseed oil, including linoleic acid and oleic acid, help to keep the skin soft and smooth. Regular use can help create a younger-looking complexion.

Fresh cucumber rounds out this skin treatment with vitamin C and silica to promote the formation of new collagen, the protein that is found in all connective tissue. Cooling cucumber is also great for reducing redness and inflammation.

To make this homemade anti-aging treatment for your skin you will need:

  • 2 tablespoons of grapeseed oil
  • 1 inch of fresh cucumber (plus two thin, cold slices for the eyes)
  • 3 drops of carrot seed essential oil

Combine the grapeseed oil and cucumber in the blender and whip together. Pour the mixture into a glass or ceramic bowl and add the carrot oil. To really open pores and maximize detoxification and the benefits of this natural skin rejuvenating treatment, start with a dry brush exfoliation. Using an exfoliating brush for your face, gently massage the skin in a circular motion.

Next cleanse with warm water, using the heat of the water to open pores. Pat dry and quickly apply the face mask. Lie down and place the cucumber slices over your eyes. Rest for twenty minutes.

I love to do a full-body rejuvenating treatment when I use this face mask by relaxing in an epsom salt bath while letting the ingredients do their work for my skin. You can even add five drops of the carrot seed oil to your bath for a full body detoxifying boost. Rinse your face (and body) when you are finished and breathe the deepest, most satisfying sigh of your life. Drink a big glass of water or a cup of mint tea and yes, truly, you are gorgeous!
