Why It Works
The regenerative and healing properties of avocado oil owing to its rich fatty-acid content (Palmitic Acid, Palmitoleic Acid, Stearic Acid, Oleic Acid, Linoleic Acid, Alpha-linolenic Acid, Arachidic Acid, and Gadoleic Acid), repairs the skin while enhancing its elasticity through moisture. Apricot kernel oil nourishes the skin and lowers the appearance of face wrinkles, fine lines and blemishes as a result of its Vitamin C and E content. On average, an unpeeled cucumber fruit consists of 95-96% of water and only 4-5% of other constituents. Amongst them, the most abundant are carbohydrates (3.5- 4%), then proteins (0.5-0.8%) while fats make for only around 0.1%. Cucumbers also contain various organic acids, vitamins, phenol compounds, glycosides, minerals and trace elements, all at relatively low concentrations. The carbohydrates (mono-, oligo-, and polysaccharides) in cucumber play a significant role in its moisturizing properties, they are hygroscopic and form a protective gel-like layer on the skin which attracts and retains moisture. The vitamin content of cucumber is responsible for beneficial actions such as skin rejuvenation, lightening of the skin and healing of sunburns.
