Juicing Cucumber – Benefits For Your Skin


Have you ever wondered why people put slices of cucumber on their eyes? It’s because cucumbers are great for your skin.

Check out the benefits below. 

  • Cucumbers are mainly composed of water (about 95%). So when you drink cucumber juice not only are you flushing out harmful toxins out from your body, you’re also hydrating your body.
  • Besides the abundant amount of water that cucumbers contain, they also contain a very important mineral called silica.

Without silica our connective tissue would not properly function. It’s also important for joint function and even relieves joint pain due to it’s anti-inflammatory effects. Besides being important for our connective tissue, silica is great for the health of skin, hair and nails because silica stimulates the production of collagen.

  • Putting cucumber slices on your eyes is great for reducing puffy eyes and skin irritations or sunburns. This is again due to the silica, vitamins, and antioxidants that are  found in cucumbers. (Tip: the sulfur found in cucumbers actually promote hair growth).
  • Aids in weight loss and digestion

Besides all the outside benefits of cucumber juice, cucumbers are also good for digestion and weight loss. Cucumbers are low calorie and have a high content water so drinking cucumber juice is a great way to keep full and satisfied.


Remember to always buy organic cucumbers.

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
