We started Cool as a Cucumber out of a deep need to resolve our persistent acne. We know what it’s like to cancel plans because of our skin. We know what it’s like to avoid kisses, hugs, light clothes (too easy to stain with foundation) photos, family gatherings, “bad lighting” and social events. We know the stress of ensuring our everyday handbags are packed with a month’s-worth of makeup.

We could go on forever. It certainly felt like our acne did. Between the two of us, sisters Serra and Eda Levent, we have a lifetime of acneic anecdotes, hormonal imbalances and PCOS. Determined to not let our skin interfere with living our lives, after 15 years of trial and error, research, elimination diets, doctor consultations, and a product graveyard, we finally found a method that works. 


We’re not just starting with can’t live without products (although that’s a big part of it); we aspire to be your go to resource, trusted confidante, a sister for anything acne related. We’re in this together. It’s a journey, and it’s annoying at best, but none of us are alone. 

We are so excited to meet you, and to introduce you to Cool as a Cucumber. Pull up a seat, pour yourself a drink. Make yourself at home.
