Cucumis Sativus

;that is the botanical identification of cucumber.
Cucumber is different from cabbage. Both Cucumber and Cabbage is different from Garlic. Every single thing of this universe has its own shapes and sizes and uses, tastes.
Gerkin belongs to the same caste of cucumber but again different from garlic. Gerkin is a veggie bit expensive to grow.  The origin of both cucumber and Gerkin is not this soil we live. I think they have arrived from somewhere else and settled in this land and since then decorating the dishes and cuisines of local dinning areas. 

 And it is even preferred and welcomes by any crews of Cruses as a famous very demanding ‘soothing factor’

Its antioxidant factors give young and energetic youthful, glow full look to its followers/ believers /the users. And Cucumber is well known as cooling factor like I said earlier when compared to garlic and ginger. But do not try to compare cucumber with ice cream or ice cream with fruit Salad. Every cooling factor is not similar or gives similar nourishment though some looks alike   

For girls and ladies it is an incredibly, ‘holistically a beautification component’. Cucumber cleansing milk, cucumber face masks, cucumber toners (This uses after cleansing face to close the open pores) these can be find in any popular shops, outlets that sells beauty products.  

Who said or introduces beauty products as pharmaceutical products? I have no clue as to how to use ‘paracetamol’ as a beautification product unless you need to use them after using wrong beautification products, expired or that was not produced under safe or secure environment.  You need to know bit of ‘medicine’ to understand ‘what can be used or should not be used as beauty products without getting advice from a qualified doctor.  There are ailments that can not be cured using beauty products or beauticians will not understand. I have not heard of any beauticians who do surgeries other than they refer their customers major health issues to a qualified doctor.

Plastic surgeons who is highly qualified to do surgeries to cure wickedness of faces or any physical damages understand and knows what to do and how to observe their patients until they are sure and confidence enough to discharge them.      

There are products made labeling ‘for external use only’. There are vitamins available in the markets that assures glow of skin, some external applications as beauty products after testing or getting the certifications of assurance from the relevant authorities that is to avoid side affects and any internal damages or external physical damages of its users.   

So cucumber according to my knowledge good as it is without adding any preservatives.  It has the magic of cleansing any facial dirt. And it soothes your eyes mind you. Keep two accurately cut slices on your tired eyes and lie down on your bed or on your sofa to eliminate tiredness trust me that gives you 100% results.
For puffy eyes and dark circles around eyes following is a remedy FOR EXTERNAL USE ONLY

Grated a piece of potato                                            
Add bit of milk
Few Almonds soaked in milk and blended 
Add one spoon of bee honey
Cucumber juice (do not mix any water) and carrot take the juice out of it and add it to the mixture, is good for eyes even to apply as external application 

mix all these in a bowl stainless like a paste and it is ready to use

following things mustn't forget by the users  

Please Avoid contacting inner eye area because are eyes are a highly sensitive organ
Apply the paste gently around the eyes. Do not forget eyes are the most delicate and sensitive organ of your body.  Always use your fourth finger the ‘bonded finger’ to apply and massage your eyes gently.  Let it pat dry. And do not keep it over night that is not necessary. Practically it is not good to sleep with any make ups cleanse every make up before you go to sleep. Close your eyes after applying them while giving it a rest listen to some good music. Gives you pure results.

(Refrigerate it if possible and keep the excess paste for future use. Do not forget to air tight it properly.) 

Ah! Cucumber juice is sooooooo good to aid your thirst and to keeps the moisture level well balanced.

And as a business and as a cultivation ‘cucumber gives you chance to earn some profit. This is not hard to find in any local or international markets.

I am not going to analyze any prices differences or about buying price or selling price because that needs another survey.  And I do not know how much the middle person earns from bringing them to  town I think there are vegetable dealers who deals directly with the Farmer and with the seller in the market / town / shop other than that there are middle persons who earns rupees than the farmer. I guess it is not a new thing and it has been happening since the farmer started selling his harvest to another set of sellers or commercial settings other than to his own people in the same village and from the day that the number of consumers increased compared to past.  (Increasing population)  
For a Mixed Salad this may enhance your appetite. And for the Ladies who worried about their heavy meals and thinking about dieting this Salad gives no worries of fats but gives a lot of nourishing facts ( the vitamins)

Elegantly cut few pieces of cucumber
(Advice:  take as mush as you like but do not think of wasting any. Think of your Family size and the number of members consuming the salad)
Gorgeous Bombay onion few slices
Greeny green chilly
(I guess take only a limited number because some ones are very hot)
 Sensational tomato
(I think one or two is enough but if you prefer more add as you wish)
Enchanting Salad Leaves (just a small bunch)
 Rejuvenating lemon or lime one tea spoon full or as required (add depending on the size of the salad)
Brilliant bell pepper again add one or two
Courageous carrot just use one
A pinch of salt of solidarity
Powdered polite pepper one tea spoon/ or as you prefer (only if you like a bit of spicy taste)
Mustard powder mixed in nourishing yoghurt
Amazing an apple
Capable Cabbage a tiny piece 
Beans lets take four or five only
( advice : half boil the Vegetables) 
According to Ayurvedic medicinal remedy cucumber holds a cooling power it is good for heat. Ayurvedically, under certain circumstances or health situations cucumber is not advice to eat.

Locally, we prepare a curry from a mature cucumber, using coconut milk and adding relevant spices
Sliced cucumber,
Coriander powder,
Turmeric powder,
Coconut Milk
Well powdered or grinned mustard powder mix it to the coconut milk,
Curry leaves, red onion or Bombay onion, green chilly
Salt to taste

cook until it is fine to eat

Cucumber is a watery vegetable so before cooking this curry no need to add that much water if you are willing to add coconut milk after. Some add coconut Milk before hand and stir well while cooking the curry   
This can be grown in full sun and I think for household consuming purposes, tiny space is enough to grow  

so babes careful when you are consulting disqualified people for your beauty ailments or difficulties.  Every woman is beautiful every woman must remember that, i believe. what you have inherit from your biological father and mother can not be totally changed what one can do is to take care of their physical and mental health though it is so difficult in this complexes full universe we live.

Stay happy and healthy!
