Cucumbers have many healthy benefits for your body on the inside and out….Because they are mostly water…cucumbers aid in digestion and keep your skin hydrated….Well hydrated skin reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and gives it a healthy glow…Speaking of skin…keep the skins on the cucumbers…They contain fiber…which also benefits your digestive system….In addition to water and fiber…cucumbers also contain Vitamin C which is good for reducing skin irritations and swelling…If you are concerned with high blood pressure…take advantage of the healthy benefits of cucumbers…Cucumbers contain potassium and magnesium…and both have been shown to help lower blood pressure…

But…precisely…why it is better than any other sweet fruit is…Cucumber Seed Oil contains about 14-20% oleic acid and 60-68% omega-3 linoleic acid…These oils make cucumber oil an ingredient of choice for moisturizing skin and hair…A high content of natural Vitamin E and phytosterols further enhance their protective and nutritive benefits and may help protect skin from free radicals associated with aging and increase stability and shelf life….
