Cucumber though commonly mistaken for a vegetable is actually a fruit. They are eaten fresh, often in a salad and are low in calories and contain a good amount of water and soluble fiber, making them ideal to promote hydration.
Cucumbers may also have external health benefits. Applying them to your skin may help relieve sunburn pain, swelling, and damaged skin. A slice or two is often placed under the eyes in an attempt to reduce bags and puffiness. Some beauty products contain it as well.
