As the seasons change, so do our beauty routines and the ingredients within them. Watermelon, the photogenic fruit practically synonymous with summer, is not only a great treat covered in feta or sloshed up in a daiquiri it is also an up-and-coming skin-care and hair-care ingredient.
Its name says it all, as the watermelon is packed with 92 percent water. The water-based fruit is also brimming with vitamin B6 and fine-line smoothing amino acids. The pink fruit is also believed to have anti-inflammatory properties and help with blood circulation, exfoliation, breakouts, redness, fine lines, and dry ends. As summer rolls in, watermelon based products have begun to flood the beauty market as Milk Makeup and Saturday Skin have both recently released products packed with the juicy fruit. However, we must give credit where is due as this trend originated in Korean beauty with brands such as Glow Recipe.
We’ve narrowed down our some of our favorite picks to help you achieve that youthful summer glow.
