If you want to have a flawless, glowing and healthy skin, then cucumber is the answer. Cucumber has 96% water content that is more nutritious than regular water, which helps in keeping the body hydrated and regulating body temperature. It also helps in flushing out the toxins from the body.

 

The high water content and the presence of certain vitamins and minerals make cucumber an essential part of skin care. Facial masks containing cucumber juice can be used for skin tightening. Ascorbic acid and caffeic acid present in cucumbers can bring down the water retention rate which in turn diminishes the puffiness and swelling under the eyes. Cucumber skin also can bring relief to the skin caused by sunburn or windburn.

 

When you use cucumber for your skin care, choose the ones that are firm to touch and dark green in color. Do not use those that are overly matured or yellow colored as they are prone to contain more insoluble fiber and mature seeds. Go for organically grown cucumber to get the best results from skin care.
