1. Fight bad breath


There are dozens of things that cause unpleasant odor from the mouth, including tooth decay and stomach problems, but the result is the lack of confidence and even attempts to avoid conversations with people because of bad breath. This is where cucumber can help you: its texture and appealing, slightly sweet taste and aroma help you forget about this problem. Cucumber is also very effective at eliminating strong odors like onion and garlic.

2. Cucumber ice cream

Ice cream is a favorite summer dessert for Nigerians of all ages, but regular cream-based and sugar-heavy ice cream may not be the best choice for people keeping to a diet. Luckily, with the help of cucumber and a few other ingredients like mint you can make a batch of fresh ice cream or sorbet in a matter of minutes! This kind of ice cream will be much more refreshing than the regular kind, not to mention its health value!

3. Make a wonder toner

5 Best Uses For Cucumber

Toning your skin is an important part of the beauty routine, and you can make it even more healing with the help of homemade cucumber toner. Since it doesn’t contain any alcohol or chemical additives, it’s the best choice for sensitive skin. It’s better to make this toner in small doses. For one small bottle of toner, blend together peeled cucumber, witch hazel, and 2 tbsp distilled water. Store the toner in a fridge for several weeks.

4. Cucumber mojito


Another fantastic way to get some refreshment on a hot summer day without the extra calories of fruit juices and soda drinks is a fun twist on a classic mojito recipe. This one is alcohol-free, which makes it a perfect drink for the whole family. First make a mint syrup out of mint leaves, water, and sugar. Next, combine sliced cucumber and lime with the mint syrup, sparkling water, and ice. Now it’s ready to be served!

5. Eliminate cellulite


Cellulite is one of the biggest enemies for women during the bikini season, but among all treatments for this issue, the most affordable and natural one is the humble cucumber. The nutrients contained in cucumbers tightens your skin thanks to the effect on skin collagen, so just rub a slice or two of cucumber onto your problem areas before leaving for the beach.
