Cucumbers

Cucumbers are mainly water and once they are harvested they tend to shrivel very fast (for this reason, most commercial cucumbers are sold waxed). Cucumbers help replenish the fluids & minerals we Jose during the hot summer months. Cucumbers can be an effective skin conditioner because they are high in vitamin E. Try rubbing an end slice or a peeling to your face for a refreshing experience.

Storage Tips

• Store cucumbers in the hydrator drawer of your fridge for up to 1 week.

• Sliced cucumbers deteriorate very quickly.
