Cucumber is a wonderful treat for irritation and inflammation, as its inherent moisture is absorbed by dehydrated skin. Casa del Mar in Langkawi, Malaysia, gently soothes sunburned skin with a Cucumber Ice Body Wrap. Phi Phi Island Village Resort & Spa in Thailand applies natural aloe vera gel and cold shredded cucumber in its Sunburn Wrap. Banyan Tree Spa in Bangkok, Thailand, highlights a Lemongrass & Cucumber Rub in its signature therapy, Royal Banyan. Soak tired, worn-out feet in a Cucumber Bath at Jin Soon Natural Hand & Foot Spa in New York.

Heal with cucumber

Stay cool as a cucumber as spring warms into summer, and add a revitalizing crunch to your menu. Feature a fresh cucumber and tomato salad, or use its invigorating properties in a soothing and hydrating facial. Or take a pointer from Indian Springs Spa in Calistoga, California, which serves clients CucumberAde—a mix of cucumber, lemon and mineral water that heals from within.
