What’s In Your Skin Care? Cucumber


Some beauty rituals are timeless—reducing puffiness around the eyes with cucumber is certainly one of them. Like most of you, I can definitely remember my mother relaxing before a big night out with cool cucumber slices over her eyes.

There’s a good reason that this practice has stood the test of time: Cucumbers can work to help reduce inflammation and swelling.

Cucumbers are excellent for repair and anti-aging—they are a source of antioxidants, including Vitamin C, as well as specific compounds that combat against aging forces (free radicals) and inflammation. Cucumbers also contain Vitamin A (retinol for very mild exfoliation) and vitamin B-5 to help the skin retain natural moisture.

As a long-time writer, editor, and esthetician, I’ve had an ongoing love affair with Mario Badescu Skin Care for years. I can usually be found reading, knitting, painting, trying new beauty and skin care products, and telling everyone to wear more sunscreen. These days, I’m feeling super grateful for the opportunity to share more Mario with the world! I believe that better skin care changes lives. For more about me, visit my Google+ Page.
