Nothing says summer quite like a sweet, juicy slice of watermelon. Though this refreshing fruit is nearly 92 percent water, these melons are soaked with nutrients including vitamins A, B6 and C, as well as other nutritional benefactors such as lycopene, antioxidants and amino acids (source). Watermelon is also a powerful tool that can help achieve healthy, glowing skin, due to its hydrating properties and high levels of antioxidants. Love, love, love.
And what’s more? Chowing down on a few hearty slices of this sweet and delicious fruit isn’t the only way you can reap the benefits of this nutritious and beautifying summer snack. Check out this easy at-home toner to start incorporating watermelon into your beauty routine out of the kitchen:
4 ingredient watermelon toner
One of the greatest things about watermelon as a natural beauty product is that it can be used on its own as a toner. Yup, that’s right. One ingredient; DIY beauty has never been easier. That being said, I do have just a few things that I like to add to this hydrating natural toner for a little boost in relieving acne and other skin woes. Here’s the sitch:
♥ 1/2 cup watermelon juice (you can run it through a juicer or a handheld press, like shown here)
♥ 1 tbsp witch hazel
♥ 1 tbsp water
♥ Drizzle of honey
♥ Juice the watermelon
♥ Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and stir until blended
♥ Store in the fridge for up to five days
Do you like, or do you love? I’ve been obsessed with this toner, just because it’s so dang easy. Not to mention I can make it at home and know exactly what I’m putting on my skin.
