Watermelon Is The Juicy Ingredient Your Parched Skin Needs

You probably eat watermelon when your mom cuts it, or you drink watermelon daiquiri juice sometimes but have you ever thought about putting the juicy fruit onto your skin?

As it turns out, watermelon has some seriously juicy skincare secrets. It’s made of 92% water after all.

From cult-favourite masks to face mists, here’s how you can use watermelon to your advantage.

Watermelon is bursting with flavour… and skin-loving ingredients

The mostly red fruit is suitable for all skin types, and we guess anything that’s made of mostly water would be. Citrulline is an amino acid that’s present in the fruit which acts as a natural exfoliator and improves blood circulation. Another noteworthy ingredient is an anti-inflammatory phytonutrient called lycopene.

Watermelon helps to reduce the signs of ageing

Wanna look 25 at 30? Your answer could be at the fruit stall near you. Watermelon is rich in antioxidants that protect the surface of your skin from free-radical damage. Hence, the fruit can actually reduce the signs of ageing. If your mom keeps feeding you with this great fruit, you gotta thank her for young-looking skin.’
