A Beauty Post

Today, I’m going to let you in on a family secret! You see, although my beautiful mother, a trained beautician is now 50 years old, she is often mistaken by strangers as my sister! Why? Because her skin is FLAWLESS – I swear I’m not over exaggerating nor am I being bias. Good ole Hippocrates once said: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” – a simple statement but a very profound one to which I wholeheartedly agree! Okay, okay, I’m stalling… what’s the secret you ask? The answer is: CUCUMBER.

For the past hour, I have been contemplating how I can genuinely promote the health benefits of cucumber without sounding like an advertisement and unfortunately, I am slowly running out of ideas. All I can really say, is that for my family and I, cucumber has done wonders! Simply massaging your skin with a thin slice of raw cucumber can help moisturise dry areas, fade dark circles, reduce puffy eyes, improve complexion, reduce wrinkles, treat sunburns, fight acne and tighten open pores. It is honestly that simple. No chemicals, no bull**** just 100% mother nature – Sorry, that totally sounded like an advertisement.

Seriously though, don’t bag it till you try it! – Argh, there I go again.

Fun fact: our skin is our body’s largest and fastest growing organ hence why it is so important we take extreme care of it.
