Dear steemian I always love and be proud of.
A variety of cucumber benefits for your body, from detoxification to preventing dehydration.

In addition, there is still another advantage when we try to consume cucumber. Anything?

Cucumber contains 95 percent water. Consuming cucumbers helps keep the body hydrated and eliminate toxins. High water content in cucumber serves as a system cleaner and helps remove waste products from the body.

Lower blood pressure

Cucumber is rich in fiber, potassium, and magnesium. All these nutrients effectively lower blood pressure. In addition, the cucumber diuretic properties are mild, because the content of potassium and water in cucumbers is high. It also helps regulate blood pressure.

Soothes the skin

Apply cucumber juice directly to the skin for freshness. Cucumber contains potassium and is ideal for dry skin.

Reduce dark circles

Put a cucumber slice on the eyes every day for 8-10 minutes to reduce dark circles and swelling around the eyes. Or just use grated cotton to get a smooth and fresh skin.


Cucumber, has anti-inflammatory properties and helps solve the problem of sunburn. Mix the cucumber juice with yogurt or lemon juice and leave on the skin for 10-15 minutes every day. This will lighten the skin from sunburn.

Overcome bad breath

Cucumber can help release excess heat in your stomach, which is one of the main causes of bad breath. Put a cucumber slice on the roof of your mouth with your tongue for 30 seconds. It can kill bacteria that cause bad breath.

Reduce wrinkles

Cucumber seeds are potassium warehouses and Vitamin E which help reduce wrinkles, fine lines, stains and other signs of aging. Another simple way to keep your skin healthy and radiant is to regularly consume water with additional cucumber slices.

Good for hair and nail care

Cucumber consists of a large amount of silica, which is good for nail and hair care. In addition to making the nails and toenails stronger, consumption of many cucumbers also plays an important role in hair growth.

That is the secret against heat with cucumber fruit. Hopefully useful yes steemian. Especially the steemians who are living in hot weather areas.
