    Why Cucumber is good for me? Because of the following reasons:

    Cucumber for Eyes
    It is believed that cucumber helps in reducing swelling around the eyes or the big dark circles under your eyes. This is world-wide treatment which is being used to its maximum extent.
    Cucumbers are the most wonderful and natural eye pads you can find for yourself. The puffiness and the tiredness in your eyes may just leave you, if you do this in a relaxed fashion. These natural eye pads do wonders after a long days work.

    Cucumber for Skin
    If you want a happy skin, then cucumber is the answer. As cucumber and the skin share the same level of hydrogen, it becomes easier for cucumber to mask all the problem areas. It helps in soothing and softening your skin which can get you relaxed in no time.
    With so many useful ingredients in cucumber it can help you in treating so many skin problems. It has become part of daily beauty product into face packs, facials, juice and many other things which can affect your skin.
    Due to its cooling effect it can be termed as a magic wand for all your skin problems. The cleaning and cleansing property helps your skin tremendously making it soft and supple.
    The regular intake of cucumber juice is very useful both internally and externally.

    Cucumbers, besides containing vitamins A and C, minerals, and fiber, contain water. In the summertime, eating fresh vegetables and fruits is a great way to stay hydrated and get your nutrition as well.

    Cucumber is good for those who are dieting as it is very low in calories. It has a cleansing action within the body by removing accumulated pockets of old waste material and chemical toxins. It helps eliminate uric acid so it is good for those who has arthritis. Its juice is a nourishing vitamin for our hair and skin. It is also a good rejuvenator and makes us feel and look younger.

    Cucumber is also good to reduce heat and inflammation. It is very useful to treat tired eyes and remove the eye bags under your eyes by placing a slice of cucumber over closed eyes.. It also helps lung, stomach and chest problems, gout, and tapeworm. Fresh cucumber juice is good to reduce heartburn or sooth stomach acid, also for those suffering from gastritis or ulcer.

    Its fiber-rich skin and their levels of potassium and manganese helps regulate blood pressure and help promote nutrient functions. Its the dietary fibers regulate cholesterol level and support bowel regularity. Its magnesium content relaxes nerves and muscles and keeps blood circulating smoothly.

    Cucuber is used for tummy and facial cleasing. It is used for soothing the eyes by slicing 2 piece out and place them on ur eyes while lying down in the dark .

  36. Firstly, I'd like to highlight cucumber as food, part of salads, best for inihaw/kinilaw, even raw, just as long as thoroughly washed.

    Secondly, cucumber's role in beauty, most known to alleviate eyebags, also ingredient of cleansers/toners/moisturizers.

    Q: Why are cucumbers good for you?

    A: Cucumbers are good for me because it is very beneficial... Although people think that cucumbers only contain water, some don't know that it is high in magnesium, potassium, fiber and other vitamins. Let me share a few things that I know about yummy cucumbers:

    1. It helps sooth the skin and aids in the treatment of swollen eyes, burns, and dermatitis.

    2. As a beauty aid, the cucumber provides immediate relief to puffy eyes; a fresh cucumber can be cut into thin slices, and these placed on the eyes for 5-10 minutes. This works incredibly well after a tiring day at work in front of the computer, and helps to relieve stress and dark circles around the eye area as well. Grated cucumber can be used as a mask and tonic for the entire face and neck.

    3. Cucumber is also good in regulating high blood pressure. This powerful fruit contains magnesium, potassium and fiber. Eating cucumber regularly will help reduce one’s high blood pressure to healthier level. The enzyme erepsin contained by cucumber also helps digest protein properly.

    > One cup of diced cubes supplies about 90ml of pure water.

    > The combination of ascorbic acid and caffeic acid contributes to cucumber's cool and soothing properties.

    I would like to have a tuna sandwich with cucumbers now... I missed buying them from my favorite canteen stall in Tektite... hehehe... I'd love to try this set! ^__^

    Keep up the amazing work, Ms. Nikki! ^__^

    Cucumber makes me feel fresher and clean. It's natural and safe to use everyday.

  41. my favorite use of cucumber - as salad and sandwich mate. i seldom use it as instant magic for eyebags though.

    has anyone come across the idea that cucumbers are negative calorie foods? and as such, they may help in fat burning and/or weight loss. this though still needs research backing :)
