Did you know there’s more to watermelon than sugar? (You’re singing the song now aren’t you?) Watermelon acts as a wonder fruit when it comes to your skin. How, you ask? Let me fill you in on 3 reasons to eat more watermelon. Your skin will benefit from all 3 reasons.
- It hydrates. There’s a reason I load up my boys with watermelon on summer baseball days. It is super hydrating. But kids aren’t the only ones who benefit from the hydrating effects of watermelon. Hydration is a key compenent to healthy, youthful skin.
- It calms and acts as an anti-inflammatory. The calming impact of watermelon helps your skin battle inflammation and irritation.
- It’s high lycopene content helps protect against harmful UV rays. Meaning you’re less likely to get sunburned after eating a lot of it. Don’t skip the sunscreen of course, but eating watermelon at the pool or beach doesn’t hurt.
