Cucumbers are loaded with antioxidants that help fight oxidative damage caused by free radicals. Cucumbers has a high content of vitamin C, caffeic acid, and folic acid that help rejuvenate and repair facial complexion. Vitamin C, often found in citrus fruits like oranges and grapefruits is a very effective antioxidant that clarifies and brightens skin. Caffeic acid and folic acid help increase collagen production and defend against signs of premature aging. Collagen production typically declines over time, which is why it’s beneficial to incorporate ingredients like caffeic acid and folic acid into your daily skincare routine.
Similar to aloe vera, cucumbers contain polysaccharides that help the skin attract and retain moisture. Cucumbers are 96% water which a key benefit as it allows them to provide superior hydration to the skin.
Cucumbers have soothing and cooling effects on the skin, making them particularly beneficial for those with sensitive or irritated skin, although they’re suitable for all skin types. They also have anti-inflammatory properties thus helping to reduce swelling and morning puffiness. They can soothe mildly burnt or damaged skin and help alleviate sunburn due to its cooling properties. Cucumbers are a mild astringent, meaning that they tauten and tighten pores, help regulate oil production, as well as reduce the appearance of pore size. Excess oil and large, clogged pores often contribute to breakouts so if you have oily or acne-prone skin, cucumber will be your skin’s new best friend.
