Watermelon has a high water content so it helps keep your skin hydrated. Dehydrated skin leads to a dull appearance. As we get older, our skin becomes thinner and less able to recover from damage. Our body is full of ‘free radicals’ that damage cells over time and can be attributed to the cause of aging skin. Watermelon is full of antioxidants such as lycopene and vitamins C and A, which help reduce these free radicals and can slow down the signs of aging. Watermelon is packed with Vitamin A, which can help reduce skin pore size and the amount of oil that your sebaceous glands secrete. Watermelon is believed to help with acne due to this these properties. Watermelon is a natural toner that can help to refresh the skin.
