Seen all 'em pretty ladies always making two thin slices out of cucumbers and then resting them on thier (closed) eyelids. What health benefits (if any) are there for the eyes? Does it actually do anything?
I know some people say it feels soothing (it does), but does it do anything chemically? If not, why does it still persist so much in mainstream culture (as a remedy for tired eyes)?
And where did the idea come from?
