Cucumber is really one of those awesome ingredients because it is so versatile. According to Disabled World, cucumbers have the same amount of hydrogen as your skin, and this is why it is so great. Also, the cooling wonders of cucumbers do amazing things, as well. I think this is because when things get cold, they constrict... But I'm not positive if that's why cucumbers work for your skin.
I'll try to write an entire article on why cucumber is so great for your skin. But it is 4am, and I'm tired... I'm not going to lie. Its hard for me to think. So, I would just rather share these awesome remedies with you, so you can get to work. Let's see that radiant skin!
We have to start with a classic:
Take your cucumber and make 2 slices. Lay down and place these over your eyes for about 15 minutes to reduce puffiness and lighten dark circles. Its that simple! You can also lay a warm wash cloth over the slices to open up the pores. Just a useful suggestion!
