Watermelon — that ultimate warm weather treat, starring at our picnics and barbecues — is packed with antioxidants and free-radical fighting lycopene, meaning this cooling treat, happens to be really good for your skin too. Make your own DIY face mask for radiant, supple and soothed summer skin. It’s cooling, brightening and particularly beneficial for skin that has had too much sun exposure. When combined with honey, you get the perfect mix of hydrating, brightening, soothing, and acne-fighting effects.
Here’s the DIY:
Mix equal parts Watermelon with equal parts honey. (For a full face, 2-3 Tablespoons should be plenty) Mix it in a blender or with a whisk, and apply to your face. Relax for 20-30 minutes and rinse! For added cooling benefits, you can grate just the rind of the watermelon, mix with honey, refrigerate for 10 minutes then apply for 20 minutes.
