Good news! You don’t have to spend a lot of money on pampering your skin. If you want happy, moisturized and smooth skin, cucumber is the secret. Cucumbers help to restore the skin’s protective layer since they have the same pH as skin. You could just cut them and put straight onto your skin to soften and improve complexion, or you can combine them with other ingredients for rejuvenation. Cucumber makes a great toner as well.
