One thing that we all fear is waking up to dry skin topped with acne and blackheads. Many of us have a strict skincare regimen but we mostly depend on chemically enhanced products. Little do we realise that these chemical-infused products may be more harmful than good for our skin. Have we ever realised the potential of the ingredients in our kitchen? They are the ones with the real nutrition and goodness. Yes. One such ingredient is CUCUMBER!
Cucumber is one of the most nutrient-rich vegetables out there. It’s not only refreshing but also helps us keep our body and skin cool against the scorching summer heat. 96% of a cucumber is essentially water. The high-water content aids in maintaining the body’s water balance. It’s highly recommended for good health since it helps in keeping our body well hydrated. Cucumber with its cooling characteristics has become an intrinsic ingredient in pre bridal skin care routine primarily intended to treat sensitive and dry skin.
Cucumber benefits our skin in quite a few ways. Let’s discuss them:
