This is for people who spend their summers by the pool.  Chlorine can be very damaging to your hair.  Add together 1 tsp. olive oil, 1 egg, and half a peeled cucumber.  Put it in a food processor until it is smooth then leave it in your hair for 10 minutes.  


2. Refreshing Summer Bath

This is a little like a DIY summer bubble bath.  Fill the bathtub with cool or lukewarm water, then add 2 cups Epsom salt, about 4 to 5 sprigs of peppermint, and 1 sliced cucumber.


3. Sunburn Relief

Putting cucumber slices on a sunburn is a healthy and natural way to soothe the affected area without any burning or itching.

This is the most well-known way to use cucumber in your beauty routine.  It’s in every movie about a girl who is spoiled rich, even though it only costs about one dollar for 10 treatments.  Just cut two cucumber slices and leave them on your eyes for 20 minutes.  

5. Rejuvenating Mask

This is the easiest and common use for cucumber on your skin.  Just apply cucumber juice and lemon juice to your facial area.  This has been proven to highlight and improve complexion.

I never thought that tomato juice and cucumber would go together, but mixing tomato juice, cucumber juice, apple cider vinegar, and aloe creates a mixture to help clear pores.

This one is technically a beauty pro because a smile on your face is always better than a frown.  Cucumbers are the most unknown hangover cure.  Just eat a few slices of cucumbers before you go to bed and you will wake up in better shape the next morning then if you didn’t.
