Puree cucumber in a blender, leaving a little pulp. Strain mixture into a glass bowl until you have at least 2 oz. of puree. Add aloe + mix gently. After cleansing face, apply to under eye area with a cotton ball. Refrigerate + use within a few days.

Strain watermelon juice to get rid of seeds + fruit pieces. Combine ingredients in small bowl + stir well. Pour into clean container with tight-fitting lid. Pour a small amount on a clean cotton pad + apply to face. Store in fridge between uses to retain freshness for approximately one week.

♥ Coconut + Lime Hair + Scalp Treatment
