Last week on the blog, we talked about the benefits of Green Tea Powder (which you can add to our lotions or body scrubs at our Body Bar!)
This week, let's talk about cucumbers.
Known for covering eyes during facials, cucumbers have been a part of spa routines for a long, long time. But did you know there are actual benefits for your skin within this healthy snack?
Well, maybe not when you simply place it over your eyes... (but when you add it to our lotion or scrub bases, it's pretty amazing stuff!)
Four reasons we LOVE our Cucumber Peel Powder!
1. It's full of antioxidants! Naturally occurring vitamin C gives your skin a boost!
2. It contains coumaric and cinnamic acid, which offer some UV protection. (this does not replace sun screen)
3. It is rich in vitamins A and E, which protects against free-radical damage over time.
4. Putting cucumber slices over your eyes is said to have anti-inflammatory effects... and it's true! Cucumber Peel Powder has the same effect.
How do you reap these benefits? Come on by to add Cucumber Peel Powder to your favorite gourmet product or request to add it to a lotion or scrub base online... and then let us know how much you love it!
Looking forward to seeing you!
