Though watermelon is the fruit most people associate with summer, its benefits can be used all year long! This delicious fruit is fantastic for your skin and it contains calcium, potassium, sodium, and magnesium, which are essential for your body’s health. But here are a few other benefits that may surprise you:
Watermelon is one of the greatest source of antioxidants. It also contains vitamin C and flavonoids to strengthen your skin and keep it extra hydrated.
This miracle fruit also has the unique distinction of being able to help protect your skin from damage from UV sun days, which makes it ideal for use in skincare. That’s thanks to its high levels of lycopene, which is known to protecting against wrinkles and skin cancer.
Watermelon helps prevent free radicals, which also helps prevent signs of aging. But its juice has also long been known to be a natural acne treatment, as it removes excess oil from the skin without any harsh chemicals.
Since watermelon is a great source of vitamin A (just a cup of watermelon contains ¼ of your daily recommended dose of vitamin A), it helps diminish the look of pores and also helps the sebaceous glands from producing excess oil. And its cooling properties make it fantastic for treating skin burns.
With all these benefits, is it any wonder we’ve chosen to feature watermelon in so many of our products? Harness the power of this superfood and give your skin some watermelon love.
