For a refreshing, calorie-free, cost-free beverage, try adding a couple slices of cucumber (scrubbed, but not peeled) to a glass of ice water. It's heavenly!

I agree. When I go to a spa cucumber water is always offered. I prefer making the water in the summer when I can use my own homeground unwaxed cukes.
that sounds really refreshing & tasty ~
I started making my own cucumber water after visiting the spa and a co-worker noticed that my face was glowing. I drink a lot of water, and plain water can be so boring. I cut up half a cucumber in a 32 ounce sipper and refill it about 3 times during work and on the way home, I eat the cucumbers. Also really refreshing is slicing oranges or lemons with the cucumbers.
I made a big pitcher of cucumber water, added a bit of lemon and lavender and brought it with me to rehearsal. I've got the entire cast hooked now!
I'm drake and yes I put cucumber in my water. I know it sounds crazy but it's quiet refreshing and sometimes I put a little plum, lemon, or even strawberry!

I can assure you that in about 1 week of drinking cucumber water you are going to notice the difference in your skin. This totally cleanses your insides and detoxifies you. Try it you will definitely be hooked. The aloe it contains cleanses your intestines and cucumber are a natural diuretic/collagen producing product. (03/14/2007)
