Cucumbers aren't just for munching - here are a few unusual ways to use them:
- Peel a cuke, blend it with water and press the puree through a sieve for a flavorful drink or as a base for lemonade.
- Soothe your sunburn by halving a cucumber length-wise and rubbing it on scorched skin as you would aloe. Vitamin C can turn down the dial on inflammation damage in the skin.
- Place slices over puffy eyes - anti-inflammatory properties may help to reduce swelling.
