Cucumber extract is one of the signature ingredients in all of the Refresh Botanicals products, and for good reason. Packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, cucumber is one of the healthiest things you can feed your skin, no matter what type of skin you have.
What does cucumber do for your skin?
Whether your skin is dry, or oily, whether your skin is young or old, cucumber soothes, balances, tones, and moisturizes. It said to have astringent properties and to help clear the pores. Cucumber’s astringent effects firm and tighten, balancing oil production and reducing signs of ageing. Its desquamation properties promote shedding of the outer layer of dry and damaged skin, and its natural emollient properties combat dryness.

Let’s take a look at some of the amazing skin-saving components found in cucumber extract:
It has magnesium, which helps maintain skin elasticity, and potassium, which helps regulate hydration.
It contains Vitamin B1, a powerful antioxidant that boosts collagen production and reduces fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of premature aging.
It is packed with flavonoids and other polyphenol antioxidants fight the cellular damage that comes from everyday wear and tear. Refresh Botanicals Night Restore Complex is specially formulated to enhance the skin restoring effects of cucumber’s antioxidants while you sleep.
Perhaps the most powerful component in cucumber, however, is Vitamin C. Vitamin C boosts collagen production, promoting a healthy, toned complexion. It is a potent antioxidant that provides protection against UV damage, and it is has been shown to enhance the production of your skin’s barrier lipids, or natural oils, thus reducing dryness. To experience the benefits of vitamin C for your complexion, we recommend Refresh Botanicals Intensive Serum. You will notice the difference.
