Benefits of Cucumber on Skin

Cucumber is kind of a big dill around here. Sorry, bad joke, but cucumber is loaded with nutrients like water, potassium, sulfate and vitamins A and C. They are rich in water content and low in cholesterol, calories, sodium, and fat. In addition, cucumber has also been a key component in skin and beauty care rituals for many generations.

How can it help your skin?

Cucumbers are excellent sources of phytonutrients (plant chemicals that possess protective and disease preventive properties) including flavonoids, lignans and triterpenes, all of which contains potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It also possesses a number of antioxidants, including beta-carotene and manganese.

Moreover, cucumber contains vitamin C and caffeic acid, which both aid in reducing irritation and hydration thanks to its high water content. Even the peel itself carries silica, which help rejuvenate and firm up sagging skin. All this makes it particularly useful for sensitive skin types.

Soothes irritation and burns

The ever-cooling cucumber can help soothe skin irritations. Cucumber's mild astringent property is considered very effective in reducing the itchy feeling. It is even used to treat sun burns or reduce tan. Pretty cool indeed.

Reduces swelling

You might have seen pictures of people at a spa with cucumber slices over their eyes. Turns out, there's science backing this pampering ritual, cucumbers have a cooling and soothing effect that decreases swelling when used topically. You can prepare cucumber slices and place them on your eyes to reduce morning puffiness, from swell to well quickly.

Dermatitis

You can also use organic cucumber to help reduce itchiness, swelling and rashes as it restores moisture to your dry skin, reduces inflammation, and pulls out harmful toxins.
