10 Beauty Secrets By Using Cucumber
Cucumber is there in everyone’s house. It’s perhaps the most common thing in every household, one of those things that we always pick up at the supermarket, and we all use it in a variety of ways for eating, ranging from salads to side dishes etc. But did you know that this cool vegetable has a lot of beauty benefits as well? Listed here are some of the best beauty secrets that you can enjoy with cucumbers.
1. It reduces dark circles
Ever wondered why those salon and spa people put cucumber slices on your eyes while your facemask is drying? That’s because it soothes your eyes and reduces dark circles. You can also take cucumber juice and rub it under and around your eyes on a regular basis to see a visible difference.
2. It reduces under-eye puffiness
Cucumbers contain a large amount of ascorbic acid, which reduces water retention and treats puffiness almost instantly. That’s your life-saving trick before a party or when you have woken up the next morning after a late night party and have to rush to office and look presentable at the same time.
3. It brightens your skin
Take cucumber juice and apply it generously on your face and neck. Let it seep in nicely for about 15 minutes, and then wash it off with cold water. That will help to lighten and brighten your skin. You should do this at least twice a week.
4. It tightens open pores
You can use cucumber juice standalone, or you can mix it with a little amount of Apple Cider Vinegar or Lemon and Honey to give a nice tightening effect on your skin and shrink down open pores.
5. It cleanses oily skin
Mix grated cucumber with rose water, and massage it well on your face. Then leave it on for about 15 minutes before washing it off with warm water. That will instantly cleanse your skin and make you feel refreshed and rejuvenated.
