This delicacy contains numerous vitamins such as vitamin A and Vitamin C which keeps the skin looking fresh and young. Not only that, cucumber contains minerals such as potassium that helps slow down the wrinkling process of the skin.
One major feature of cucumber is that it is 96 percent water. This indicates that it has a very high water content. As such, using cucumber on the skin helps to hydrate it. If your skin is properly hydrated, it remains supple and vibrant.
Cucumber is helpful in the production of elastin in the body. Elastin is a vital protein that gives the elasticity of the skin.

How to prepare:
To prepare this simple anti aging home remedy, you will have to:
Peel off the deep green coloured skin of the cucumber. The most important part of the cucumber is the white inner surface. This is the area packed with most nutrients.
Then, cut the cucumber from one end. Either from the top or the bottom depending on how you hold it. This will make it easier to grate. Afterwards, grate the cucumber using a grater. Grating is an easy way to extract the cucumber juice which is what is needed.
Squeeze out the cucumber juice using a spoon to press it inside a seive. Then store the juice in a small bowl.
By now, your aloe Vera gel should have been kept in a clean bowl. Scoop out several spoonfuls of the cucumber juice into the bowl containing aloe Vera gel. Do not pour all of the cucumber juice at once. This would damage the consistency of the mixture.
Stir the mixture consistently and properly. Observe the colour change of the mixture and the thickness. Make sure that the mixture does not become too watery. It should feel like a light gel on your skin.
If the cream now feels smooth on your skin without any lump, it is now ready for use.
After preparing this anti aging home remedy, put it in an air tight container and store inside your fridge before and after each use. Note that this remedy is only effective for just a week after which you will have to prepare another cream using the above procedure.
