There are many beneficial nutrients (as well as fiber) in the tough cucumber skin. However, main-stream cucumbers you see in a regular produce isle are frequently covered in insect, animal or petroleum-based wax, which offsets the benefits in my books, especially given that you never know which one it is. (So buy organic!) Cucumber’s flesh is mostly water, but it also contains ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and caffeic acid – these nutrients help soothe skin irritations and reduce swelling. Which is the primary reason cucumber has been a “skin care” product since the beginning of time. Cucumber is a great source of silica, which is an essential component of healthy connective tissue. Cucumber juice (as a source of silica) is great for improving complexion and health of skin, plus it is naturally hydrating.
