    Another TIP

    While cucumbers are great for eating, you can also enjoy bit of relaxation tried at many spas. Slice cucumbers and place them over your eyes for at least 20 minutes. Slice cucumbers thinly and place each all over your face for about 20 minutes. Not only they leave you refreshed, they also help your skin feel softer.
