Watermelon Is the Secret Ingredient for Year-Round Glowing Skin

Certain things just scream summer. Like cutoffs, swimsuits, beach wave sprays and all kinds of sunscreens. (Even though SPF really should be an all-season thing.) When it comes to sweet treats, watermelon is at the top of the list. A staple at picnics and barbecues, the colorful fruit is super healthy with vitamins A, B6 and C, amino acids, antioxidants and lycopene. Plus, watermelon is mostly water. Making it a low-calorie and fat-free superfood.

Its high water content also makes it ideal for skin care. Watermelon is in everything from cleansers to serums to moisturizers to up the hydration factor. It’s also a great anti-aging ingredient since lycopene along with vitamins C and A combat skin-damaging free radicals. It’s not just the pink part that brings big benefits, however. The striped rind and even the seeds are valued powerhouse ingredients.

Make watermelon a daily part of your year-round skin care regimen with these watermelon beauty products.
