Cucumber is one of those every day staples that just seems to be used as a bit of decoration or garnish. Whilst it hasn’t got a lot going on, there is one thing that I do really like about cucumber..

Skin Health

Cucumber is a great ingredient for skin health. This is due to the presence of the mineral silica. This is the stuff that gives cucumber its shiny skin. Silica can strengthen the bonds between skin cells and make the skin and hair stronger and more resilient.
