This condition is known as carotenemia. It occurs because the carotene is fat-soluble and when you consume large amounts of it, it builds up in the blood and then becomes deposited in the skin, mainly in the stratum corneum and subcutaneous fat layer.

Are Cucumbers Really Cold? Is That Why We Say Cool as a Cucumber?

21 Mar 2018 19:00

Yes, the inside of cucumbers are cooler than their surroundings, but that doesn't mean as much as you think.

If you were to pick up a room temperature cucumber and insert a temperature probe into it, you'd find it to be somewhat cooler than the temperature of the room. You may even find it to be 10 to 20 degrees cooler on the inside. So, cucumbers are cool, relative to their surroundings. It has been suggested that the origin of idiom 'cool as a cucumber' is owed to this fact….
