A vegetable must for glowing skin!!

Almost 10,000 years ago in southern Asia Cucumbers surfaced. This vegetable rich in contents with Vitamin C and Vitamin A was introduced to India and other parts of Asia by the then travellers and the explorers. It was very popular in the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Greece and Rome, where people used it not only as a food but also for its beneficial skin healing properties.

Cucumbers are used for various types of skin problems, including swelling under the eyes and sunburn.

Cucumber juice is often recommended as a source of silica to improve the complexion and health of the skin,and it's high water content makes it naturally hydrating—a must for glowing skin.
