Watermelon is not only a delicious fruit but also a wonderful means to beautiful skin. The whitening properties of watermelon have been long known, which explains its presence as an ingredient in many lotions and cosmetic products.
Cosmetologists say that if regularly used, watermelon can give your skin elasticity and color and will remove persistent pigmentation spots.
Summer watermelon facial masks are very easy to make. The following mask is very efficient for dry to normal skin: mix one teaspoon of watermelon juice with one egg white. Apply to face. Rinse after 15 minutes.
If, however your skin is oily, add a few drops of lemon juice to the above recipe.
For dealing with freckles and pigmentation spots try mixing one egg white, 20 drops of lemon juice and one teaspoon of watermelon. Rinse after 20 minutes.
An immediate toning and cleaning effect can be achieved by washing the face with a mixture of one part watermelon juice and one part peach juice for normal and dry skin or watermelon and cucumber juice in the same proportion for oily skin.
After watermelon season is over, you can continue using the fruit as a cosmetic product through ice cubes of frozen watermelon juice. Rub face with watermelon cube every morning after waking; leave on for 15 minutes and rinse.
