Cucumber is well known for its benefits to the skin, which makes it a common ingredient in many topical skin preparations and a popular choice for preparation of homemade face masks. Cucumber extract can be found in various skin care products like skin moisturizers, anti-aging creams, face and neck creams, lotions, skin cleansers, eye tonics, after-sun products, hair care products and many others. Such a broad palette of cucumber-based skin care products exists due to versatile effects of cucumber to the skin.

According to Nature on the Shelf, cucumbers are also very popular for making homemade facial masks. Fresh cucumber slices, juice or puree can be applied directly to the face. The best known effects of cucumber to the skin are that it refreshes, moisturizes, cools and soothes puffy eyes and tired skin, but cucumber skin treatment does much more to the skin due to its complex mixture of vitamins, minerals, and various phytochemicals that are highly beneficial.

Applying cucumber in the form of juice is the most convenient, because it can be used as a leave-on product. It is also an all-natural alternative to store-bought facial toner because it acts as a refreshing skin conditioner and moisturizer.

Cucumber juice is suitable for all skin types, even for people with sensitive skin. It moisturizes dry skin, soothes irritated skin, regulates sebum and shrinks pores on oily skin, and nourishes devitalized skin.

Active ingredients contained in cucumber are for the most part water-soluble, thus most of them will end up in the squeezed cucumber juice.
