Cucumber contains minerals that help achieve healthy skin, hair and nails. Its high content of vitamin C, anti-oxidants and its alkalizing effect help cleanse the blood for better skin health.
Tomatoes contain the age-defying phytonutrient, lycopene — the natural pigment that makes tomatoes red — with highest levels found in processed or cooked tomatoes used in ketchup, paste, soup and juice.
Tomato is a skin food suitable for healing from internal or externally. Its rich vitamin A and C make it helpful for anti-aging skin, skin imperfections and brighten up a dull complexion.
If you suffer from gout, do refrain from eating tomatoes as they contain purine which may aggravate your condition.
- 1 small cucumber

It may be a little challenging to juice tomatoes. After cutting these produce, feed them into your juicer, alternating cucumber and tomatoes, so that the cucumber can help “push” the tomatoes through the strainer. Happy juicing! 🙂
