This cooling cucumber eye gel is my little secret weapon when I wake up with a bit of puffiness under my eyes. With only two ingredients, this eye gel is incredibly easy to make and is all-natural and chemical-free, making it great for folks with sensitive skin. The cucumbers in this recipe have antioxidants that help reduce inflammation, and the aloe vera fights fine lines, retains the elasticity of skin, and acts as a great moisturizer.


  • 3 oz aloe vera
  • Juice from half a cucumber

Slice up half a cucumber and run the slices through your juicer, or alternatively, blend up the cucumber and strain the juice out through cheesecloth. Mix the cucumber juice and aloe vera very well, then store in the refrigerator, using the chilled gel to combat puffy eyes.
