Cucumber powder is great to add into skin care products for its anti-inflammatory actions and skin-tightening properties.
Traditionally cucumber slices have been used in home made Eye Compresses and Face Masks as cucumber naturally contains ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) and caffeic acid. These nutrients help to soothe skin irritations and reduce swelling.
It soothes, cools and reduces under-eye bags and helps to reduce dark circles around the eyes. Cucumber also helps to bleach the skin so it is helpful in skin lightening products.
