Chill Cucumber

Being as cool as a cucumber comes from the fact that the internal temperature of cucumbers remains 20 degrees lower than the external temperature on a hot day.

When buying cucumber for juicing, look for non-waxed which allows you to juice the cucumber in its skin. Always wash vegetables thoroughly before juicing.
It is an excellent source of silicon. Cucumber is good to rub on your skin, giving it elasticity resulting in a more youthful complexion. It is suspected to help in reducing hair loss.

Cucumber juice is usually mixed with other juices.

Look for firm cucumbers with a dark green, wrinkle-free skin. Will store in refrigerator for 6 days.
