How to Make an Easy Cucumber Face Mask for Kids

By Erika Marie

A cucumber facial mask removes many impurities from the skin that clog the pores and can lead to acne. It leaves your skin feeling cool and refreshed, with a healthy glow. Cucumber softens and soothes the skin, and after a hard day of school and play, kids enjoy this as much as adults do. Children learn good hygiene early when you treat them to an occasional grown-up facial. Preteens and teens enjoy hosting spa parties and sleepovers, where all will enjoy a batch of this easy cucumber facial mask.
