The high water content of cucumber helps regulate the water balance in the skin, especially when the skin is heated or exposed to heat. The cucumber peel itself is an excellent source of silica, which helps firm the skin and improve its dull appearance, leaving it rejuvenated and refreshed. It is perhaps due to its high antioxidant levels that cucumber helps reduce the onset of redness, inflammation, and irritation. Cooling effects calm sensitive skin, while astringent properties help to balance oily skin and improve the appearance of enlarged pores.
Ideal weekly care for normal to dry skin types, sensitive, or inflamed skin.
