We know that cucumber can be excellent for our health if we eat it in a salad, but it can also be a wonderful complement to our skincare routine due to all the benefits that brings to our skin. Here we give you more details.
You don’t need to buy luxurious creams to take care of your skin, you can pick the cucumber that you have in your fridge and take advantage of all its benefits. Here we are going to tell you some things that cucumber can do for your skin and how you can use it.
Cucumber benefits for your skin
It has plenty of nutrients for the skin
Cucumber indeed has a lot of vitamins that bring plenty of benefits to our general health, but it is also particularly effective in supporting skin health if we apply it to the surface. Additionally, cucumber is loaded with antioxidants, which help us fight against free radicals, as vitamin C, caffeic acid, and folic acid.
It can moisturize your skin
One of the most important things about taking care of our skin is keeping it hydrated as this helps improve elasticity and firmness.
Cucumber has polysaccharides, molecules that are present in aloe vera too, and helps to attract and retain the moisture in the skin. Also, cucumber is 96% water, a characteristic that allows it to provide superior moisturizing to the skin.
It has anti-inflammatory properties
If you have sensitive or irritated skin, cucumber can help you because it has soothing and cooling effects on the skin. What’s more, it can reduce swelling and morning puffiness.
It can be good for acne-prone skin
One of the qualities of cucumber that can improve the appearance of people with oily skin and acne is its slightly astringent property; it can regulate oil production, tighten pores and reduce its appearance.
How to use cucumber on your skin
- The extract of cucumber is usually used in facial cleansers due to their soothing and cooling effects on the skin.
- If you want to take advantage of the astringent and moisturizing qualities of cucumber you can use it as a toner, as it can balance the skin’s pH level. Some toners combine cucumber with aloe vera.
- Cucumber is popular for making face masks, but if you are interested in making your own home-made vegan face mask, you just need to go to the kitchen, blend half a cucumber, use a strainer to separate the juice, and then apply the cucumber juice to your freshly washed skin.
