I like my cucumber with a li’l cheese cream and chive but seemingly, I’ve been using cucumbers all wrong. Instead of chopping them up and serving them as a snack, I should have been placing them on my eyelids.

Refreshes the skinBuy now with free delivery
Cucumber is super-refreshing because of that high water content (95%). Combining all of its benefits, such as the antioxidant, astringent and cooling properties – it’s one great way to achieve radiant skin.

After a 10-minute application, dull skin is exfoliated while skin-damaging pollutants and impurities are extracted from the pores.
Improves the under eye areaBuy now with free delivery
Yes, the cool cucumber can enhance the under eye area. The presence of ascorbic acid and caffeic acid in cucumber brings down the water retention rate resulting in reduced swelling and puffiness around the eyes.
Also, the large amount of antioxidants and silica in cucumber can help in slowly fading dark circles, and comfort the vessels in the area to restore a normal tinge.
Unfortunately these benefits are temporary, so turn to the cucumber regularly! Pick up Juice Beauty’s Smoothing Eye Concentrate for a healthy eye area – it’s suitable for all skin types and daily use.
Has antioxidant superpowersBuy now with free delivery
As we age, our skin loses antioxidants that wage war on environmental aggressors and sun damage. But the cool cucumber can help keep your antioxidant levels steady. It is also a natural astringent that will maintain the skin’s natural pH.
