Cucumbers are part of the same botanical family as watermelons, honeydew and cantaloupe, and they share a lot of the same nutritional properties. Like its melon cousins, cucumbers have a high water content, which helps ward off dehydration. When used topically, cucumber has a cooling and soothing effect that decreases swelling, irritation and inflammation. Cucumber slices can be placed on the eyes to decrease morning puffiness or placed on the skin to alleviate and treat sunburn. Cucumbers also contain lignans, which research has shown may decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease as well as several types of cancer.
