Wow, I understand the term “cool as a cucumber” a little more after that experience. Cucumbers really are cooling, almost chilly.
Anyway, in all honesty when I added this thing to my list at the end of last year I actually had no idea why people did this, I just knew they did and thought it was something I should try.
So I looked up how and why and all the normals questions and got this info:
Putting Cucumbers on Your Eyes
I actually don’t really have dark circles, or puffy eyes, but I thought I would give it a try anyway.
It is cool and refreshing. And it is just nice to sit eyes closed for 15 minutes, not being blue to open your eyes… somewhat meditative.
I recommend it. Plus, the site has lots of other benefits of using cucumbers in a variety of ways.
