I chose cucumber today because, over time, the green cylinder-like edible plant has proven to be just what every lady should have or use as part of her beauty regimen especially the women of colour in order to maintain our skin, which is mostly sun burnt because of our weather.
Here are some of the great benefits of cucumber.

- Because it's seeds has potassium and vitamin E, it is effective in the cure of rashes, sunburn and inflammation. Here is a tip: If you always have shaving irritations, just rub a cucumber juice on the affected part of the skin.
- Since cucumber is a cleanser, it helps to reduce excess oil from the face, so the face looks, younger and healthier.

Just a slice of cucumber on the eyes, reduces the puffs and the circles, it also gives a soothing and relaxing effect , taking stress away.
