The power of cucumber water
I discovered cucumber water when I went to a resort in Mexico with my family years ago. They had it at the fitness center where I worked out each morning, and I was hooked instantly. I love cucumber water because it's my way of pretending that I'm at a spa :). It's also so refreshing and cleansing.
Tonight I'm drinking cucumber water because I've been feeling bloated and sluggish for the past few days (with my skin looking a bit off). I decided that hydration + good sleep + sunscreen might be the best method for getting back to normal.
While it could just be mental, I'd like to believe that cucumber water has added benefits. I browsed online to research the possible benefits of cucumber water and came across an article on livestrong.com that had a few insights.
