If you are looking for low-budget skincare, just go to your kitchen and pick up a cucumber. It’s readily available, cheap and of course, will give you amazing skincare results.

Reduced puffiness

Cucumber has a cooling and soothing effect on your skin. Its antiinflammatory properties will help you reduce swelling and morning puffiness. It’s suitable for all skin types, and it will even work with sensitive and irritated skin types. Being composed of 95% of water, it will keep your skin hydrated all day long. Just throw away your morning moisturiser.

Your everyday mask

Here is how you can prepare a repairing cucumber mask for your skin. Cut and blend one cucumber to obtain its juice or pulp, then add a teaspoon of oats and let sit for half an hour. Apply this thick paste all over your face and leave it on for about 20 minutes. Rinse with cold water.

With everyday-use, your blemishes and dark spots will eventually fade away. And also, as it is enriched with Vitamin C, Folic Acid, and antioxidants that will fight with free radicals released from your skin, it can be used on sun-burnt skin. 

Prevent acne

It can also balance the production of oil from your skin. It can shrink pores and reduce sebum oil production that can be prone to acne. Even normal wounds or cuts can be treated with cucumber. It will immediately provide soothing relief and slowly reduce the inflammation of the skin.

Drink cucumber water

Apart from topical usage, you can also drink this miracle water to maximise the effect on your skin. Try drinking cucumber infused water, you could add some mint leaves and lemon preferably of your choice to taste it better. During summer, it will keep you energised, hydrated and refreshed.

Cucumber peel benefits

Cucumber peels are a great source of fibres that will help your digestive system to prevent constipation. It also contains beta-carotene, which is an antioxidant that will help improve immunity and skincare. To make it edible, wash the cucumber at least 3-4 times. And then, soak it in cold salt water for 15-20 minutes and dry it out, store it in the refrigerator. The taste can be a little bit bitter, but according to your preference, you can mix it with lemon or other mints to taste it better.
