According to Eric Larson, Esthetician and Director of Brand Management & Education at HydroPeptide, there is a reason why it is so often used by many women. This is because applying cucumber slices to the eye area can help to reduce puffiness. She explains, “because the coolness of cucumber slices acts as a vasoconstrictor to s w blood flow.”
Dermatologist Dr. Robert Anolik agrees to nothing that “eye puffiness can occur with vessel dilation and swelling, the cool temperature of the cucumber assists in constructing those blood vessels, relieving puffiness.”
On top of that, according to Murad, cucumber slices can combat undereye darkness thanks to their high levels of vitamin K, which has been proven to improve blood circulation.
Cucumber also has a subtle, mild skin lightening effect. This is why cucumber on eyes is so often used for the dark circles under the eyes. The skin lightening effect will also make your skin appear youthful and glowing.
If you are experiencing redness or irritation due to sunburn, cucumber can improve your skin’s complexion by giving the cooling relief on your skin to cool it down.
