The Beauty of Cucumbers

Cucumbers are a great addition to your beauty diet – they are high in vitamin C, vitamin A, and a good source of silica.  Silica is one of the building blocks of collagen.  Collagen keeps skin looking young and fresh.  Cucumbers are also high in water, so eat up to stay beautiful and hydrated!

Cucumbers are also a well-known treatment for puffy eyes!  Place a slice of cucumber over each eye for 5-10 minutes to help de-puff!  The high water content makes them feel very cool and soothing to the sensitive under-eye area!
