You will need

  • a handful of quince flowers
  • juice from half a cucumber


Slightly crush a handful of quince flowers and place them into an enamel pan. Pour cold water to cover the plants and close the pan with a lid. Bring to the boil and slowly keep on boiling the mix for 30 minutes. Wash and peel half a cucumber, squeeze it and add the juice to the blend. Boil for 5 more minutes. Strain through a paper coffee filter and cool in a fridge.

At present quince flowers are rarely used in cosmetic products. Dr. Konopko believes them to be unjustly neglected, as they perfectly cleanse pores and whiten skin.
