Cucumber Benefits for Skin

Cool as a cucumber—nature's soothing balm. Loved for its ability to calm the eye area, but did you know there are other benefits of cucumber for skin? This humble plant is a powerhouse of hydration, nourishment, and rejuvenation, whether applied topically or embraced as dietary skin support.

Cucumber Benefits For Skin

Cucumbers are celebrated for their ability to soothe and revitalize the skin, especially in addressing dark spots and dark circles in the delicate eye area. Let’s explore all the beautiful benefits for skin cucumber offers.

Hydration: Cucumbers, with their high water content, are naturally hydrating, helping to maintain the skin's moisture barrier. This is especially beneficial for areas of dryness and skin irritation, ideal for those with a sensitive skin type. 

Soothing: Cucumbers have anti-inflammatory properties, which help soothe and cool inflamed, uncomfortable skin and reduce redness. 

Nutrient-rich: Packed with nutrients like vitamin C and folic acid, alongside beta-carotene, they can help protect against the damage caused by free radicals due to environmental stressors, promoting overall skin vitality.

Toning: The plant’s natural astringent properties can help tighten pores and improve texture for a refreshed, tighter appearance.

Detoxifying: As a natural diuretic and detoxifying agent, cucumbers can reduce fluid retention, especially around the eyes, making them an excellent natural remedy for puffy eyes.  

We've captured the essence and benefits of cucumber in Awakening Eye Gel and Purifying Cleansing Gel

Awakening Eye Gel is an ultra-nourishing eye cream designed to quench and soothe tired eyes. Cucumber is one of its key ingredients, offering its capacity as a moisture-enhancer and a depuffing agent. 

Purifying Cleansing Gel is an invigorating formula perfectly suited to oily or overactive skin for a thorough cleanse, leaving the complexion smooth and soft. To amplify the refreshing essence of cooling Cucumber, chill the bottle in your refrigerator  for an hour or two before you wash your face. 

Cucumber as a Dietary Skin Care

Cucumber, as a whole food and in cucumber juice, offers remarkable benefits for your skin, enhancing its health from within. Its high water content boosts hydration, promoting a plump, elastic, and glowing complexion. 

Rich in vital nutrients, the plant provides vitamin C to shield against environmental damage and silica to strengthen skin, nails, and hair. They also contain vitamin K, which can diminish dark circles by improving circulation around the eyes. 

Adding cucumber to green juices is a tasty detoxifier, helping to clear toxins and brighten the skin; try blending spinach leaves, cucumber, green apple, ginger, and lemon for a delicious green juice.

Is Rubbing Cucumber on Your Face Good for You?

Here is a twist on the classic DIY treatment of applying cucumbers to the eyes: apply a thick layer of the Awakening Eye Gel to the eye area, then gently place cucumber slices on top to create a mask. 

This method allows the skin to absorb the cucumber's hydrating and soothing properties, enhanced by the rich blend of ancient plant remedies in our celebrated eye cream. It's a delightful way to relax and refresh your eyes, especially after a long day.

What Skincare Ingredients Can You Mix with Cucumber

Cucumber is a wonderfully gentle and hydrating ingredient that blends beautifully with other plant remedies. 

In Awakening Eye Gel, the benefits of Cucumber pair with Rosemary to refresh and revitalize the delicate skin around the eyes, stimulating circulation for a more vibrant under-eye area. We also include Carrot Seed, to brighten and rejuvenate the skin with its rich beta-carotene and vitamin A content. Packed with vitamins E and C, Avocado complements Cucumber's hydrating effect by nourishing and protecting the skin, ensuring deep moisturization and a strengthened natural barrier.

In Purifying Cleansing Gel, Cucumber is supported by Great Burdock, which acts as a natural detoxifier, enhancing the purifying benefits of Cucumber to clarify the complexion while maintaining balance. With its calming and soothing qualities, Lavender pairs perfectly with Cucumber to reduce irritation and inflammation during the cleansing process. The refreshing sensation of Spearmint amplifies Cucumber's cooling effect, invigorating the skin and leaving it feeling fresh and revitalized.

Through the thoughtful blending of these ingredients, Awakening Eye Gel and Purifying Cleansing Gel reveal the transformative power of uniting Cucumber with the perfect plant remedies for supporting skin health and radiance.
