Q:Why do my eyes burn when I put cucumbers on them ?

I heard that cucumbers can help reduce puffiness under our eyes so I applied two pieces of chilled cucumbers on my eyes. But later I felt that my eyes burn. Why? What’s wrong? Have you suffered from similar symptom?
A:Dear friend, I have applied chilled cucumber slices on my eyes for several times but I haven’t suffered from burning eyes.

Oh, God! Maybe I know where the problem lies. Do you wash your chopping board? If you didn’t. The remains of hot pepper or other condiments may cause your burning eyes. So you can wash your chopping board and chopping knife and try cucumber slices again.
