COOLING CUCUMBER

If you want a happy skin, then cucumber is the answer. Due to its cooling effect it is soothing for any skin problems. The cleaning and detoxifying properties also help your skin, making it soft and supple.
The flesh of a cucumber is mostly water, but also contains ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) and caffeic acid, both of which help soothe skin irritations and reduce swelling – these acids prevent water retention, which may explain why cucumbers applied topically are often helpful for soothing a sunburn, reducing puffy eyes, tightening pores, and rejuvenating skin.

Here is a short list of the impressive health benefits that a cucumber carries:
Keeps you hydrated. If you are too busy to drink enough water, munch on the cool cucumber, which is 96 percent water. It will cheerfully compensate!

Fights heat, both inside and out. Eat cucumber, and your body gets relief from heartburn. Apply cucumber on your skin, and you get relief from sunburn and itchy skin.

Flushes out toxins. All that water in cucumber acts as a virtual broom, sweeping waste products out of your system. With regular use, cucumber is known to dissolve kidney stones.

Nourishes you with vitamins. A B and C, which boost immunity, give you energy and keep you radiant. Give it more power by juicing cucumber with carrot and spinach.

Supplies skin-friendly minerals: magnesium, potassium, silicon. That’s why cucumber-based treatments are popular in spas.

Aids in weight loss. Simply slice cucumbers and a few slices of lemon and infuse your water with this strong detoxifying beverage while staying hydrated.

Revives the eyes. Placing chilled slices of cucumber on the eyes is a clichéd beauty visual, but it really helps reduce under-eye bags and puffiness.

Cuts cancer risk. Cut down your risk of several cancers by including cucumber in your diet. Several studies show its cancer-fighting potential.

Stabilizes blood pressure. Patients that struggle with blood pressure, both high and low, often find that eating cucumber brings relief.

Refreshes the mouth. Cucumber juice refreshes and heals diseased gums, leaving your mouth smelling good.

Smooths hair and nails. Silica, the wonder mineral in cucumber makes your hair and nails stronger and shinier.

Soothes muscle and joint pain. All those vitamins and minerals in cucumber make it a powerful enemy of muscle and joint pain.

Keeps kidneys in shape. Cucumber lowers uric acid levels in your system, keeping the kidneys happy.

Good for diabetics. Patients of diabetes can enjoy cucumber while also reaping its health benefits: cucumber contains a hormone needed by the cells of the pancreas for producing insulin.

Reduces cholesterol. A compound called sterols in cucumber helps reduce bad cholesterol.
