In Beauty, Style by Tina Bowling5 Comments

These days the beauty industry is looking to more natural ingredients for added benefits.  Let’s talk about the goodness of cucumbers!

Cucumber Extract – Primarily composed of water, cucumbers also contain ascorbic acid and caffeic acid, which have an astringent effect on the skin – preventing water retention, helping to soothe skin irritations and reduce swelling.

You can incorporate products with cucumber extract in a variety of ways, it’s the perfect addition to your Summer beauty routine!

In the shower:  Leave skin feeling soft and supple with the Green Tea and Cucumber Purifying Shower Gel from June Jacobs, a preservative-free, botanical shower gel also packed with vitamins and anti-oxidants., $36.00

In a facial cleanser:  Get t-zone shine control with the added benefit of soothing cucumber when using the  Mario Badescu Cucumber Cleansing Lotion., $15.00

In a facial mask:  The Que Bella Cucumber Peel-Off Mask is enriched with natural cucumber and witch hazel extracts to remove dead cells and tone your face for a deep, soothing clean., $2.05

In a body moisturizer: Keep your skin extra hydrated and refreshed with the Hempz Cucumber and Jasmine Herbal Moisturizer also enriched with 100% pure organic hemp seed oil to renew and nourish skin., $23.00

  3. I’m really glad to read this. I wondered why cucumber was in so many products and what the benefit was. I tend to shy away from it because I don’t care a lot for the smell of cucumbers, but I’m going to start incorporating some into my routine.

  4. You should definitely go for the Hempz Body Lotion, I know for sure it has a very nice and fresh scent!
