Additional Benefits of Cucumber Lemon Water
Not only is Cucumber Lemon Water refreshing, it’s loaded with plenty of vitamins and nutrients. The cucumber acts as an anti-inflammatory and the lemons boost immunity.
Cucumbers and lemons are both packed with antioxidants like vitamin C and caffeic acid. As an added bonus, the vitamin C also increases collagen and elastin production, resulting in younger-looking skin. Plus, cucumbers have natural anti-inflammatory properties that prevent water retention, and silica to promote healthy connective tissues.
You can even wash your face with Cucumber Lemon Water! It refreshes the skin, closes pores and helps prevent oiliness.
