Drank a few too many beers last night? Don’t despair: the green vegetable will make you feel alright again. Cucumbers contain both water and vitamin B, which is a great combination when you want to make up for the deficits the alcohol has caused in your body.
Cucumbers are often used in skin treatments because they contain potassium, magnesium and silica. Apart from that, they also contain anti-inflammatory properties. Because of this the cold slices of cucumber can help swollen eyelids to settle down again. If you’ve got sunburn, slices of cucumber can also help to alleviate the pain.
