cucumbers work well

Recommended Posts

using a cucumber that's turned yellow from being left in the fridge too long, cut it so that you have enough pieces with juices to cover the affected area

gently rub on the redmarks with the pieces until satisfied, ranging from 30 seconds to a couple minutes

you will see results immediately

you can do this every day or 3 times a week

good luck!

i guess that's how the necessary chemicals get released from the cucumber- i don't know the science of it, but it works

Will this actually eliminate the redmarks over time, or is this a quick solution to fade them for a little while?

Thanks for the post, I might try it. NOTHING works for my redmarks!

i'm not sure with all the scientific details

all i know is, it works, as in the marks appear fainter after regular use

definately quickens the healing process

i think cucumbers are working for you because cucumbers are high in malic acid. since malic acid is present in higher amounts in apples, you could probably use apple cider vinegar and have better results. if youre going to use acv, you should definitely check out delna's method.

My apologies!

I always thought "red marks" were pigmentation.
