It has various benefits. From skin tan to many diseases it is helpful, Including them in your diet will really be useful. Beside its direct consumption there are other ways too.
Cucumber for skin and hairs:-
1. Cucumber reduces dark circle. The abundance of antiocidants and sillica within cucumber can reduce dark circles. We need to place cucumber slices on our eyes for 20 minutes daily or we can also use cotton sokaed in cucumber juice to place on our eyes.
2. Cucumber makes an excellent toner, you can either mix it with apple cider vinegar, few drops of lemon, honey, aloe vera gel or use it alone. It immediately tightens open pore.
3.cucumber contains sillica, sulphur,sodium,phosphorus and calcium which are essential for hair growth. Rubbing cucumber juice on scalp is very benefitial for hair growth.
4. Cucumber contains great hydrating, nourishing and astringent properties. They have the same pH as skin so they help restore the skin’s natural acid mantle, which protects it from bacteria and other contaminants. Regular use of a cucumber face mask can prevent pimples, blackheads, wrinkles and dry skin. To make the face mask, mix two tablespoons of oatmeal, one-half pureed cucumber and a little milk. Apply the mask to your face and neck area, leave it on for about 20 minutes and then rinse with warm water.You can also use cucumber as a cleanser. Just mix cucumber juice with milk and use it instead of other cleansers.
Cucumber for physical health :-
Cucumbers support the digestive tract, including cleansing liver, which is our main detoxifying organ, by removing accumulated toxins and waste materials from the blood and gut. They’re also a natural diuretic food, which means they can help the body produce more urine to carry out toxins and waste.
