We’ve talked before about how eating nutrient-rich foods like watermelon can benefit the complexion, but did you know adding them to your skin care routine does too? Made up of about 92 percent water and packed with essential nutrients, there are many skin-loving benefits of watermelon when used in your daily beauty products.

The Skin Benefits of Watermelon

Reduces Dryness: The amino acid citrulline is naturally produced by the body and is an essential part of the skin’s moisturizing system. It is also found in watermelon, so products infused with watermelon extract can help reduce dryness and add hydration.

Evens Skin Tone: Vitamin A, is a powerful antioxidant in watermelon that promotes cell turnover. This turnover of dead skin cells is key to a glowing complexion free of dryness and breakouts.

Fights Premature Aging: Watermelon also contains vitamin C, an antioxidant that keeps skin looking young and firm. Vitamin C aids in the production of collagen, which gives skin its elasticity. As we age, natural collagen production declines, which causes fine lines and wrinkles.

Works for All Skin Types: Watermelon skin care products can benefit all skin types, including sensitive, oily, dry and combination. Since watermelon’s makeup is mostly water plus it isn’t very acidic, this superfruit provides the benefits above without irritating the skin.

How to Add Watermelon to Your Daily Routine

Now that you know the benefits of watermelon, it’s time to incorporate the fruit into your skin care routine. My favorite non-toxic beauty brand* just launched a regimen with watermelon as the starring ingredient. Ever Skin’s new Pretty Young Trio is made with a superfood blend of watermelon, turmeric and pre and probiotics. The hydrating trio boosts collagen, softens lines, calms redness and lightens hyperpigmentation. Here’s how these watermelon-infused products work:

Beauty Water Makeup Removing Cleanser:  ($21) The first step is to remove makeup, dirt and impurities using micellar water. (There’s no sink needed so it’s perfect if you don’t love washing your face!) Beauty Water nourishes the skin while it brightens and smoothes. Using a gentle product like this cleanses and tones without stripping the skin of its moisture.

Glowtion Brightening Gel: ($29) This product transitions from gel to liquid when applied, leaving skin super hydrated. It also brightens and helps reduce the look of pores.

Canvas Priming Moisturizer: ($39) Add even more hydration plus UVA/UBV sun protection with the third step in the trio. Turmeric, watermelon and pre and probiotics visibly brighten and smooth the skin. This product works best when applied in the morning to prep the skin before makeup.

You can also purchase them as a set and save up to $26.
