Have you ever used frozen cucumber on the face or simple cucumber slices? These also have benefits for skin to treat other skin issues like puffiness, swelling, soothe irritation, boost hydration, or treat acne-prone skin. Place cucumber in a freezer, cut off one end, start using in a circular motion (its flat surface on the face). It’s like a homemade ice roller or Gua Sha. Similar to those facial tools, that helps to reduce inflamed acne, puffiness, lighten skin, tighten pores of the skin, and delicate under-eye circles.

It is the easiest hack for glowing and healthy skin. It is best in the summer season because it absorbs excess oil, dirt, bacteria from the surface of the skin and tightens pores. Make sure to use it after washing your face.
