W Magazine recently tackled how watermelon is going to take over the skincare trend pretty soon. They also mention how we have to thank K-beauty for this awareness of the fruit’s properties. The fruit is present in their DIY skincare secrets and also represents good vibes since it’s a staple during family gatherings.
“Watermelon has 92 percent water content and is rich in vitamins A, B6, and C, amino acids and lycopene. It’s also incredibly antioxidant-rich and is a great hydrating and soothing ingredient for skin year-round,” says W. It’s like almost everything you need to get that face glowing and healthy. Say no more as we rounded up a few items that maximize the power of this sweet and refreshing fruit.
