There is no doubt that watermelon is the ultimate summer treat: this juicy, giant melon is the most delicious way to cool down and stay hydrated in the unrelenting heat. Its secret lies in its high water content, which can reach up to a whopping 92%! As every K-beauty aficionado knows, hydration also happens to be the key to flawless skin: the infusion of hydration watermelon provides plumps up the skin, softens its texture and brightens the complexion.
A bite of watermelon is more than just a hydration booster: this fruit is also loaded with antioxidants, including vitamins A and C and lycopene. The job of these antioxidants is to destroy free radicals before they can wreak havoc on your skin in the form of wrinkles and dark spots. However, all of them also go the extra mile in one different way: vitamin A increases the production of collagen and speeds up the skin’s natural exfoliation process; vitamin C brightens the complexion and helps fade unsightly dark spots; finally, lycopene boosts your body’s natural protection against ultraviolet radiation.
I’ve always added a few pieces of watermelon to my salads in the summer to amp up the juicy factor and the anti-aging properties but recently I’ve also begun to include this big fruit into my skincare routine. As you’ve probably guessed if you’ve been reading Sorabelle for a while, I’ve chosen to do this through a sheet mask, namely Skinfood Beauty In A Food Mask Sheet Watermelon.
I find this particular sheet mask to be quite refreshing: as soon as I put it onto my skin, I can feel my face starting to cool down, giving me some welcome relief from the current heatwave. After the customary fifteen minutes are over, I take it off and pat the remaining essence into my skin. Its hydrating effects are immediately visible: my skin is so plumped up that my few fine lines have become practically invisible to the naked eye.
On top of it, the texture of my skin looks smoother and feel softer and my whole complexion has taken on that signature dewy glow every Korean woman effortlessly sports. Overtime, its antiaging benefits begin to show up too, helping your skin gain some firmness and elasticity.
