In the mind of a pervert, seeing a cucumber in a female’s handbag elicit reactions. However, there is more than what meets the eye.

We noted that different women go for different sizes, some big and succulent, others thin and long. It all depends on how one plans to use this 'heavenly' fruit to achieve best of results.

So just like any other Dick and Harriet out there curious enough, here are some of the things you need to know about cucumbers before you contemplate on whether to try them out or not.

First of all, you need to understand that cucumbers come in different varieties. We have the pickling, slicing, bush, dwarf cucumber as well as the standard varieties.

The colors also differ as a result of variety, disease, handling and age.

As Maria from Pipeline estate in Nairobi’s Eastland area revealed to the source, her number one accessory to go in her handbag whenever she is stepping out of her house is always a fresh, green and succulent cucumber.

She adds that the juice from the succulent fruit is her favorite. She squeezes it all out on a bowl and splashes it all on her face. This gives her a cool, breezy effect as the juice moisturizes her skin.  

The juices can be rubbed directly on the skin, over acne spots, or even put under a sheet mask while waiting.

Insomniac individuals can take advantage of cooled cucumber juice to de-puff the eye area.

More so, the juices are rich with vitamin C and folic acid which not only reduce swelling in the eye area, but also mollify damaged skin and make your eyes look and feel reinvigorated.

The skin of a cucumber helps to repair damaged skin. It provides a relief to sun burned or wind burned skin. 

Forget weighing yourself down with a handbag full of cosmetics, just a cucumber, and a leaf of aloe Vera or castile soap is enough. Just mix the cucumber juice with any of the two above then apply it on the face and feel rejuvenated as your natural beauty remains alert all day long.
