Here's a completely cucumber-centric skincare routine. Start by dabbing a drop of Jurlique eye cream under your eyes, the ultimate alternative to the cucumber slice cliché.

Follow with a layer of Tay moisturizer over your face: Cucumber has tonic properties that calm the skin and tighten the pores.

At the end of the day, wash your face with DR Harris cleansing milk, an ultra-soft concoction to remove all the dirt. It also contains a mild antiseptic that neutralizes blemishes.
