Watermelons are the perfect fruit to feast on during summer due to its delicious taste and cooling properties. But did you know that beyond its irresistibly delicious taste, watermelons may be used to enhance the beauty of your skin?
Here are the top five beauty uses of watermelons!
- Natural skin toner
Watermelons boast astringent qualities that help in improving the appearance and texture of the skin. Massage your skin with watermelon flesh daily for best results. If you want to add more benefits to your skin, you may go ahead and add honey into the blend. You may also use hazelnut extract to treat oily skin. Watermelon will keep your skin hydrated, thus resulting in soft and supple skin.
- Prevents premature skin aging
Watermelons are excellent sources of lycopene- a nutrient that stops the proliferation of free radicals that wreak havoc to our bodies. It also contains high levels of Vitamins A and C (just like this Serum I’m taking for my eyes) that keep the skin nourished and free from fine lines and wrinkles.
- Optimum skin hydration
If you want to keep your skin hydrated all day long, you should use fresh watermelon slices to soothe and moisturize the skin. A dehydrated skin will reveal more signs of skin aging. By using watermelons, you are sure to keep your skin well nourished at all times.
- Prevents oily skin
Watermelons are a great source of Vitamin A- a nutrient that effectively minimizes the size of pores. This action limits the production of oil by the sebaceous glands.
