Why Watermelon is a Superfood Ingredient in Skincare
Your favorite summertime snack can also be your favorite summertime skin treatment! Watermelon is an amazing superfood ingredient in the skincare industry and here is why you should be incorporating it into your routine!
1. Watermelon is rich in amino acids and Vitamin C which help promote collagen production
Watermelons are full of Vitamin C which plays a huge role in the production of collagen! Collagen is the protein that gives your skin structure as well as strength.
2. Vitamins C & E help hydrate your skin
Just as Vitamin C aids in collagen production, it also helps to provide moisture along with Vitamin E. Both vitamins together contain moisturizing and healing benefits. Vitamin E provides the hydration and Vitamin C helps lock it in and prevent moisture.
3. Watermelon can soothe and calm any irritation
Watermelons are full of Lycopene which is shown to reduce skin irritation and redness, including sunburn. Ingredients like this help watermelon act as an anti-inflammatory in skincare.
4. The fruit can help provide a bright and vibrant complexion
Amino acids and antioxidants like glutathione can be found in watermelon which contain skin-brightening properties. Glutathione specifically aids in decreasing the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation.
