“Cucumbers are rich in vitamin C and caffeic acid,” says Rousseau, “which, when applied topically, help to brighten and soothe the skin, as well as reduce swelling.” But don’t just reserve this secret weapon for mornings—keep it in the fridge for a cool skin refresher throughout the dog days of summer.

Ingredients:
Juice of 1 cucumber
½ cup green or white tea
½ cup organic rosewater

Directions:

After steeping the tea, let cool. Then combine with the cucumber juice and rosewater in a small mister bottle. This creates a perfect anti-inflammatory toner, which calms the skin, while providing it with a boost of antioxidants. Each batch usually lasts 7-10 days.
