Cucumber Oil – The Liquid From The Skies

I call it a liquid from the skies…Because it aptly deserves being called so…Reason?

Read on to find it yourself…

Cucumbers have many healthy benefits for your body on the inside and out….Because they are mostly water…cucumbers aid in digestion and keep your skin hydrated….Well hydrated skin reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and gives it a healthy glow…Speaking of skin…keep the skins on the cucumbers…They contain fiber…which also benefits your digestive system….In addition to water and fiber…cucumbers also contain Vitamin C which is good for reducing skin irritations and swelling…If you are concerned with high blood pressure…take advantage of the healthy benefits of cucumbers…Cucumbers contain potassium and magnesium…and both have been shown to help lower blood pressure…

Actually…There are two primary ways to reap the healthy benefits of cucumbers…As a topical treatment…women for years have been using cucumber slices to reduce the puffiness and dark circles under their eyes…And as a dietary ingredient…cucumbers can be used in a number of ways…The easiest meal to prepare with cucumbers is a salad…like my cucumber tomato salad. This salad not only allows you to enjoy the healthy benefits of cucumbers…but it also contains olive oil and whole wheat bread…both high in nutrition….

But…precisely…why it is better than any other sweet fruit is…Cucumber Seed Oil contains about 14-20% oleic acid and 60-68% omega-3 linoleic acid…These oils make cucumber oil an ingredient of choice for moisturizing skin and hair…A high content of natural Vitamin E and phytosterols further enhance their protective and nutritive benefits and may help protect skin from free radicals associated with aging and increase stability and shelf life….

And in fact it is mainly due to the high amount of phytosterols which helps the skin strengthen its lipid barrier…restore proper moisture balance…smooth the skin’s surface and improve skin elasticity…Phytosterols also nourish and stimulate skin cells to regenerate…The significant percentage of oleic and linoleic acids can be effective at treating dry skin conditions such as

  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Acne
  • Sunburned skin

Cucumber Seed Oil is excellent for revitalizing mature or damaged skin…

Cucumber Oil – One Key For All Locked Doors

Do you know even before we come to this earth…nature has already arranged for us the best of everything we need…A mother…the best care-taker…A father…the best protector…Milk…The best feed…In the similar manner…when we grow up…and face certain physical issues…Count on me for this that for EVERY minor or major trouble realting to our body…internally…externally…There is something always something kept by nature to help us get rid of our problems…Be it certain herbal plants…Foods or plainly…oil…

Cucumber oil…in itself is one helluva oil that alone is the cure to more than half of the problems we encounter on a daily basis…in relation to our body…

Why I am saying so…Read on to find out…This cucumber oil is rich in linoleic…or omega-…fatty acids…as well as vitamins B1 and C…tocopherol…and phytopherols…These nutrient…both collectively and individually…are believed to be effective for detoxifying the skin…retaining moisture…preventing aging…and deep cleansing pores…As a result…many cosmetics companies use cucumber oil in a range of products…including –

  • Soaps
  • Cleaning lotions
  • Toning solutions
  • Moisturizers

It is basically the magic of its composition…The vitamin B1 and C content of cucumber oil is believed to help detoxify the skin’s pores and…consequently…helps to eliminate some related conditions…such as acne or boils…Vitamin C is also known to be an antioxidant…which helps to ward off free radicals…Premature aging of both the body and skin can result because of the damage caused by free radicals…therefore…the oil derived from the cucumber seed is thought to delay the onset of aging skin…as in wrinkles…

I am sure you must not have heard of them before but the tocopherols and phytopherols in this oil are believed to help restore the skin’s moisture levels and help maintain proper balance…Not only that…In addition…these compounds are thought to encourage the process of skin regeneration and…therefore…can lead to the accelerated healing of

  • Blemishes
  • Pimples
  • Boils

The omega-6 fatty acids…also known as linoleic acid…in the oil are also effective for treating dry skin conditions…such as eczema or psoriasis…Since these acids also have anti-inflammatory properties…when applied topically…cucumber oil can help reduce the inflammation caused by those skin ailments and others…

Cucumber has been used for years in skincare…either sliced or Cucumber water used in skincare products…or even the extract from the fruit was used widely…

But frankly I’d say thanks to new Technology…now it is possible to extract the oil from many seeds by the Cold Pressed method…whereas in the past it was not possible…we could not possibly get benefits of many such seeds…

 

You know the distinctive quality of this oils is that Cucumber oil has light texture…yet it is highly moisturizing oil…It is easily absorbed in skin & can be invariably used in Facial & Body massage oils…Skincare & Hair care Products…The examples I have already mentioned…
