What Are The Benefits Of Watermelon In Skincare?
Watermelon is very high in water content which makes it the perfect way to keep you skin looking moisturized and less dull.
2. Skin Toner
This amazing fruit has components that help shrink body tissues which allows your skin to refresh itself.
3. Prevent Aging
Packed with anti-oxidants like Vitamin C, Lycopene, and Vitamin A which help fight wrinkles, brighten the skin for a youthful glow, and promote collagen growth.
4. Prevents Oil Production
This is music to my ears! I have very oily skin, mainly my t-zone. Watermelon actually shrinks your pore size thanks to the Vitamin A that it has which also helps control the amount of oil that is released from your skin.
5. Helps Acne
Benefit #4 above, is basically why watermelon helps fight and prevent acne. Oily skin is hard to keep clear because it clogs your pores. The Vitamin A, and high amount of water is a huge factor in helping to keep your skin clear and glowing.
