    Cucumber is best for all skin

    Fresh cucumber can also be used. The combination of silica, vitamin E, and water will smooth the complexion, reduce wrinkles and blotchiness, and provide moisture to help the skin glow. Cucumber is also useful for oily skin, acting as a mild astringent. Be sure to use the skin of the cucumber as that is where most of the nutrients are found.

    For a cucumber facial cleanser:

    • half a cucumber
    • one half cup milk

    Throw the cucumber in the blender and blend until a juice. Add milk and blend just enough for a gentle froth. The milk acts to sooth skin and refine pores, while providing nourishing lactic acid. Cleanse skin, and then rinse well with warm water. This mixture can be stored in a glass jar in the refrigerator for three or four days.

    Re: Cucumber is best for all skin

    For a cucumber moisturizing cream:

    • a three inch slice of cucumber
    • one egg white
    • about two teaspoons honey
    • two tablespoons olive oil

    Blend all ingredients well in a blender. Apply to skin after cleansing, rubbing in a circular motion, focusing on areas with fine lines and blotches. Gently wipe off with a warm, wet wash cloth. The egg white is good for oily skin; honey acts as an astringent, tightening pores and reducing wrinkles, it is also good for acne (use a natural, organic honey for best results); the olive oil acts as a deep moisturizer.



    Cucumbers work well with all skin types, from oily to mature skin. Drinking cucumber juice on a regular basis will also greatly improve skin by providing the same valuable nutrients and hydration, but also supporting the liver in cleansing. Try a cucumber homemade skin care treatment and find out how good it feels to use natural, nourishing ingredients on the skin.

    To have a healthy glowing and smooth skin use this recipe
    Blend 4 - 5 leafs of fresh mint.
    Peel and deseed the cucumber.


    Add mint leaves to the cucumber to make a puree.
    Beat egg white and keep it separate, then add this egg white to the cucumber mixture.
    Apply this evenly on your face for 20 minutes and then rinse it with water and pat it dry.
