Scientifically known as Cucumis sativus, the cucumber belongs to the same family as watermelon, zucchini, pumpkin and other types of squash. Ever wondered how the phrase “cool as a cucumber” originated? Perhaps this is due to cucumber’s high water content (90 per cent) which lends it a unique moist and cooling taste. Cucumber also contains ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and caffeic acid, both of which soothe skin irritations. These two acid compounds prevent water retention, which is why cucumbers applied topically are helpful for swollen eyes, burns and dermatitis. Its hard skin is rich in fibre and contains a variety of beneficial minerals, including silica, potassium and magnesium. The silica in cucumber is an essential component of healthy connective tissues, which include muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bone. This is why beauty experts recommend drinking cucumber juice as a source of silica to improve the complexion and health of the skin. Cucumbers are thought to have originated more than 10,000 years ago in southern Asia. Early explorers introduced this vegetable to India and other parts of Asia, and later to the United States. It was popularly used during the ancient civilisations of Egypt, Greece and Rome, not only as a food source but also for its skin healing properties.
