Want to keep your skin hydrated and nourished not just from outside but also within? Then drink a glass of cool cucumber juice everyday.
Cucumbers are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, ascorbic acid, silica (a type of mineral) and antioxidants. They are also rich in water content. All these valuable nutrients and water not only work wonderfully well in promoting weight loss, cooling and hydrating your body and boosting its immunity, but also works equally well in improving the quality of your skin and leaving it rejuvenated.
Though this low-calorie drink is best consumed early morning, you can drink a glass or more of it anytime during the day to reap its many useful benefits.
How to Prepare Cucumber Juice for Glowing Skin:
To prepare a refreshing cooler that will serve as a detox as well as skin-friendly drink, you need 2 cucumbers, a handful of fresh mint, juice of 1 lemon, an inch of ginger and 1 teaspoon of honey. To prepare this drink, wash, peel and cut the cucumber into small pieces. Add the cucumber pieces, washed mint leaves, juice of 1 lemon, ginger and honey in your mixer/juicer. Blend this well. Add 3/4th glass of water and again blend it. Add water, only if needed. Serve this drink in your favorite glass and enjoy this drink early mornings. This refreshing cucumber mint lemonade is also a great beverage to have during summers.
Additionally, there is another very popular cucumber celery juice recipe that I would like to add here. The procedure for preparing this juice is same as above. You only need to replace the mint with 3 stalks of celery. If you want to flavor it up a bit, then you can also add 1 apple or an orange to it while blending.
By the way, aren’t these fresh juices quick to prepare? Drink these power-packed combination juices and smoothies on a regular basis and see your metabolism getting a positive boost with visible improvements to your skin and hair within a couple of weeks.
