Beautiful skin matters in almost every aspect of entertainment. Beauty may only be skin deep, but there are still things we can do to help our skin radiate a healthy glow. Surgeries, medicinal prescriptions, and abrasive washes bombard us every day via marketing. What about an oldie and goodie home remedy? The cucumber!
Cucumbers are 96% water and almost 1% soluble fiber. But the remaining 3% is where the cucumber packs it's punch! This raw vegetable has enough water content to rehydrate the skin if thin slices are applied directly to problem areas, plus the right amount of sulfur to build healthy skin cells, nails, and hair. And while doing all of that on the outside, the cucumber cleanses the blood stream, too. Our skin is dictated first by the health of our blood according to research published in The Encyclopedia of Foods and Their Healing Powers.
In this video, skin care specialist Keeley Selvage teaches us how to make a homemade cucumber mask. She's endearingly off-beat in her delivery, but dead-on in her science!
You may feel goofy for a second when trying it for the first time, but it won't take long to relax and give into the cool sensation they create on your skin. And in this business of quick first impressions, clean skin can get you off to the best start possible!
