The most common uses of cucumber oil are for refreshing the skin. It’s been known to help with anti-aging, acne, sun damage, repairing nails and hair, lightening skin discoloration, and soothing eczema and psoriasis.
Cucumber oil has properties that make it an antioxidant while also having diuretic, relaxing, anti-stress, anti-inflammatory benefits.
In fact, a 2011 study provedthat cucumber extract is extremely beneficial for the skin and has passed the maximum number of dermatological tests. The study also states that cucumber extracts help reduce the melanin content which is responsible for skin pigmentation and complexion while also having anti-acne effects by decreasing the content of skin sebum.
