Watermelon, the ultimate cure for dull skin!

11

In any season, it’s imperative to take care of the skin, the largest organ of our body and make sure that it stays well hydrated and moisturised. Be it summer, winter, autumn or spring, external weather conditions have a huge impact on the skin and so you need to put in a little extra time every day to pamper your skin and provide it with the nutrients it needs to stay healthy and supple.

Enter Watermelon:

Watermelon, as a fruit, is delicious and juicy. This season consider introducing watermelon into your diet, but as the best cure for your skin. Not only the fruit, but also watermelon based products can be incorporated into your skin care routine.

Watermelon is packed with Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Vitamin E. All these three vitamins are a critical part of collagen production in the body. Vitamin C stabilizes the collagen produced in the body to provide long-term benefits to the skin like minimising wrinkles and fine lines and preventing them from erupting.

Lesser known fact: Rind of watermelon has anti-inflammatory properties and can work wonders to reduce inflammation of the skin.

Eating watermelon regularly and using watermelon based skin care products will keep the skin hydrated always and also protect the skin. A hydrated skin will always look fresh and dewy.

Here are some easy tips to use watermelon for a radiant skin:

  • Eat the fruit regularly. It will keep the skin fresh, hydrated and healthy.
  • Use a home DIY watermelon toner. Take a half cup of watermelon juice and mix in little honey, water as well as rose water.
  • For an instant moisturising and hydration pack, smash some pieces of watermelon and mix it with 2-3 tablespoons of raw milk. Apply the mixture on the face, leave it to dry for 10-15 minutes and then wash it off.
  • To brighten skin instantly, take watermelon rind and chop it fine. Blend with a dash of lemon. Transfer the paste to an ice tray and freeze it. It can help to brighten, moisturise as well as soothe inflammations and tanning.
  • When buying sunscreens look for creams with watermelon as it helps reduce tanning as well as photoaging.
