Use cucumber paste to lighten your skin tone. It helps to remove blemishes and improves your complexion. I generally use cucumber face packs for this purpose. I go for home made one.
Cucumber tightens your skin and makes it look younger. This property of cucumber helps you to get rid of wrinkles, well I feel instead of getting rid of wrinkles one must avoid them by using cucumber juices and gels.
