Cucumbers are well known for their hydrating and soothing skin care benefits. Cucumbers are rich in vitamins, polyphenols, polysaccharides, minerals and other nutrients. Cucumber extract has skin care benefits for all skin types. My Girl™ Twice Daily Cleanser uses cucumber because they contain polysaccharides that create a gel like layer on your skin that acts as a barrier to attract and keep moisture in. Cucumbers are also naturally cooling and astringent. The cooling effects of cucumber are great for calming sensitive skin types. Astringent properties help to balance oily skin and improve the appearance of large pores and acne.
