WHY IS CUCUMBER GOOD FOR YOUR SKIN? AND YES, CUCUMBER REALLY DOES HAVE BENEFITS FOR YOUR EYES
Can’t you just feel the crunch when you read the word – CUCUMBER.
And talk about multi-purpose – as good for your skin as in your salad – or your sushi! To be honest, being a true cucumber lover I could wax lyrical for hours about the taste in salads, the health benefits to your blood pressure, weight loss, and flushing out toxins to freshening your breathe!
But I digress – this post is about nurturing the skin you’re in. Oh and did we mention it’s great for hair and nails – stronger and shinier – are you rushing to the greengrocers yet?!
With a high water content (96%!) the humble cucumber hydrates inside and out – goodbye puffy eyes, hello world!
Containing skin friendly minerals – magnesium, potassium and silicon – it’s no wonder cucumber made its debut in spas and treatments worldwide and remains popular. Vitamin C and caffeic acid fight inflamed and irritated skin and antioxidants help fend off wrinkles. The mighty cucumber is on your side!
Enough said – run, don’t walk, to the nearest fruit shop now – lie down with a slice or two over your eyes for 20 minutes and let the magic go to work. Make-up artists worldwide are doing just that. Or if time isn’t on your side today but you’re liking the sound of a bit of eye recovery our ‘Recovery gel’ could be a quick fix and part of your daily skin care routine. (Link to Recovery eye gel)
Ps: Apologies if we have offended with that very clear plug for Rustic Hyde natural Australian skin care, but how could we miss that one! Here’s to the mighty cucumber 😉
