Can Sliced Cucumbers Really Benefit the Eye Area?

When most people think of a relaxing facial, cucumber slices over the eyes come to mind. But do they actual have any benefits?

According to Greatist, the answer is kind of.

Cucumbers are a great source of vitamin C and K as well as folic acid. These ingredients can help the skin de-puff, moisturize and as well as help fight toxins and reduce swelling. 

However, two single slices of cucumber over the eyes won't provide much of a benefit. To really receive the benefits, it's best to find skin care products that have added cucumber juice, seed extract and flowers into products.
