Great article!!! I just started using cucumber juice on my face, a few day ago, including eye area. I keep the juice in a little can in the refrigerator and use it at least once a day. It smells good,it makes my skin feel fresh and clean and bright-healthy. It does help a lot the puffiness to go away in the mornings. I will keep using it and and I hope it will help in reducing the fine lines and dark circles under my eyes. But indeed feels great on my skin and is natural. I gave up the moisturizer and I am using cucumber juice. Good luck everybody. Be beautiful and healthy!
