Cucumbers Eye Treatment to Cool and Soothe Puffy Eyes

Cucumbers contain Vitamin C to boost collagen and elastin, and caffeic acid to protect skin cells from UV radiation, so great for your summer sun strained eyes. Cucumbers are scientifically known as Cucumis sativus and belong to the same botanical family as melons (including watermelon and cantaloupe) and squashes (including summer squash, winter squash, zucchini and pumpkin).
