Hydrating watermelon

Have you seen a square watermelon ?!

Besides quenching your thirst, the watermelon is a highly powerful antioxidant and hydrating fruit.

The watermelon is rich in Vitamins A and B. These vitamins let your skin emanate a radiant glow like what you see in youthful complexion.

The acids in the fruit act as exfoliating agents, dutifully removing dead skin cells from you face, revealing your younger skin beneath.

Containing 92 percent water by weight, watermelon’s high water content makes it an excellent skin moisturizer. It's hydrating property prevents your skin from drying and wrinkling, thus, making your skin elastic and firm !
