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…
