Summer is here and the sun is delivering scorching temperatures! As a refreshing snack you think of watermelon to cool you down, but have you ever used it to cool and treat your skin? It's very beneficial!
The juice from a watermelon also makes a great astringent and helps fight pimples.Rich in A, B and C vitamins it keeps the skin fresh, radiant and hydrated. The acids in the fruits act as exfoliates, and with just one use you will find your skin to be so incredible smooth. The rind of a watermelon is packed with vitamins and minerals, and has natural collagen-enhancing properties such as citrulline, an amino acid that aids the skin’s healing and regenerative processes. With this being said it can in the long run prevent and treat wrinkles on the skin!
1. 1/3 cup juice from a slice of watermelon
2. Apply to face for 5 - 10 minutes, splashing it and rubbing over skin like water.
3. Wash with warm water, then pat dry with cool water.
I add a pinch of sugar to help remove dead skin. I rub the juice in a circular motion and it's as simple as that! Complete this cleanse by topping it off with your favorite day/night cream! Enjoy :)
