๐Ÿ˜Ž Keep Cool!

Oh itโ€™s so HOT and steamy outside! Isnโ€™t it?

Summer heat is coming in hot!

When out of town I made myself a cocktail and facial slushee in my hotel room. Yes even on the road I love to whip up treats for my husbands and my skin. We both canโ€™t seem to cool down and our eyes are puffy from all the salty snacks and yummy food.

You know puffy eyes are caused by water retention. A cold, allergies,food,drinking alcohol and jet โœˆ๏ธ lag all can give you unwanted puffy eyes!

A few Cucumber recipes to cool you off!

So ๐Ÿฅ’ cucumbers to the rescue!

I โค๏ธ love to use cucumbers for puffy eyes, beverages, as a snack and in delicious salads I so enjoy.

It is such a cool and delicious treat to use on your eye lids abs under puffy eyes and to eat.

What you will need is:

1 fresh cucumber

Ice cubes (crushed)

1 washcloth

Crush ice cubes and add the scooped out cucumber ๐Ÿฅ’ pulp.

A cucumber ๐Ÿฅ’ and ice slushee is the answer!

Place into a washcloth and lay down on a bed or a recliner. Close your eyes and just chill in more ways than one.We relaxed and did it for 15 minutes.

Another way to cool down is a bottle of Perrier or Italian sparkling ๐Ÿ’ฆ water like San Pellegrino.

Add some ๐Ÿฅ’ cucumber slices and some fresh squeezed lemon ๐Ÿ‹ juice. Place a few lemon slices into the glass.

If youโ€™re not traveling and at a hotel. You can do this at home. Make a pitcher of water add lemon ๐Ÿ‹ and cucumbers. It is so refreshing and cooling. Ice is optional.

Some doctors say that drinking iced ๐Ÿ’ฆ water with lots of ice cubes actually doesnโ€™t cool you off. They suggest room temperature or slightly chilled water with no ice is best! Interesting huh?

Keep cool ๐Ÿ˜Ž!
