Cucumbers are just SO darn refreshing in the Summertime! And for a very GOOD reason!
Because cucumbers are composed of about 96% water, they help to keep us hydrated!They contain vitamin C and other antioxidants, and nutrients that can help protect our skin from sun damage.
Vitamin C boosts collagen and elastin, which helps to keep skin looking vibrant while natural acids found in the cucumbers protect our skin cells from UV radiation.
Cucumbers also have natural anti-inflammatory benefits and help to prevent water retention.
