It’s no secret that cucumbers are an incredibly healthy addition to any balanced diet, clear out your intestines and best of all, taste deliciously refreshing. But, did you know that you don’t have to eat cucumbers to get the best out of it, for your skin and body?
Extracting the seeds from the cucumber, and steaming them, creates a Cucumber Seed Oil that makes a brilliant additive to many skin and naturally curly hair care products. But why are they so utterly good?
Well, that’s easy peasy. It’s because cucumbers are full of lots of nutritious goodies, of course. The yummy hidden treats in cucumbers include
All mixed together, these natural properties work at reviving your natural beauty, in both your skin and your natural hair.
What do the goodies do?
Any girl knows that putting cucumbers on your eyes is a brilliant way of reducing puffiness (bags) and dark circles around the eyes. This is due to the way that cucumber prevents water retention, is full of vital vitamin C and antioxidants that keep our skin silky smooth, whilst protecting it from conditions that mean our skin needs extra moisture; illnesses, sun burn, dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis.
Good for the skin too
So, we all know that cucumbers are good for our eyes (even if we didn’t initially know how or why!). However, did you know that cucumbers are also brilliant for your skin too? I know, I couldn’t believe that cucumbers could get even better either! But it’s true. Enter Cucumber Seed Oil.
The anti-inflammatory properties also work well at reducing spots, pimples and blackheads from all areas of your skin. Cucumbers are also a natural source of silica, which works at ensuring that our skin and complexion looks healthy, bright, glowing and rejuvenated, and repairing skin cells, whilst minimising the signs of age spots.
Silica is also a key to keeping naturally curly hair healthy, by strengthening and encouraging the growth of new hair.
Whilst also restoring hair’s elasticity, reducing the chances of hair breakage, caused by the usual extremes in life, such as stress, pollution and chlorinated water that can actually damage natural hair growth.
Cucumber Oil actually contains a natural source of Silica, which protects your precious naturally curly hair against unwanted hair loss and breakage, thanks to its ability to strengthen natural hair, and encourage natural hair growth.
Moreover, if all of that wasn’t good enough for you (although I guess that it really is), Cucumber Seed Oil is also rich in important nutrients, such as Sodium, Fluorine, Chlorine, Potassium and Magnesium.
All in all, cucumbers really are the perfect fruit!
