Cu­cum­ber

SHE Canada - - HEALTH -

Cu­cum­bers are a pop­u­lar DIY at-home fa­cial musthave. When placed over your eyes, the crunchy wa­ter-rich veg­etable re­duces bags un­der the eyes. “The flesh of cu­cum­bers is pri­mar­ily com­posed of wa­ter but also con­tains ascor­bic acid (vi­ta­min C) and caf­feic acid, both of which help soothe skin ir­ri­ta­tions and re­duce swelling,” adds God­frey. “Cu­cum­ber juice is of­ten rec­om­mended as a source of sil­ica to im­prove the com­plex­ion and health of the skin.”
