1 cucumber, sliced and unpeeled
6-7 cucumber slices for decoration
1 1/2 to 2 liters of water
3 mint sprigs
2 mint sprigs for decoration
Half a lemon, sliced and unpeeled
In a pitcher, mix the water, cucumber, 3 mint sprigs and lemon. Let it rest on the fridge for 24 hours. If you prepare the water at the last minute, cut the first cucumber in three or four pieces. Then, squeeze the cucumber pieces to release all the juice.
Before serving remove the cucumber slices used to flavor the water. Then stir with a wooden spoon, add some ice cubes, 6 or 7 fresh cucumber slices and the remaining 2 mint sprigs. Now enjoy!
Tired of hiding those dark knees, elbows, & underarms? If you’re trying to lighten and brighten those areas with ingredients from home, try this easy to make paste.
Squeeze all the juice out of one lemon. Then mix with enough baking soda to create a paste. (add water if the paste is to thick, just make sure the paste is slightly loose.) Then work into underarm, knees, & elbows. Leave on for 10-15 minutes. Wash off in the shower. Repeat daily until you get those areas as bright as you want!
