For generations, women have been using Cucumbers to reduce eye puffiness and relieve red, irritated skin. Many of us share the memory of our mothers resting with cold Cucumbers around their eyes before an important night out.
After all, Cucumbers bestow on your skin the same type of hydrating and anti-inflammatory polysaccharides also found in Aloe Vera. These polysaccharides work to create a healthy gel barrier on your skin that helps your complexion draw in and retain moisture.
Cucumbers are also a natural astringent that cools your skin and calms sensitive or irritated complexions while cleansing and refining your pores. The multifaceted Cucumber can help nearly every skin type- to cool down irritated, dry skin as well as cleanse and refine an oily complexion.
(We don’t want to use the actual history of Cucumbers in skin care because it centers on bleaching the skin - a sensitive topic- as well as the erroneous belief that cucumbers contain arsenic)
