Watermelons are high in vitamin A, vitamin C and lycopene which work together as a hero combination for your skin. Lycopene is fat soluble meaning it is an especially effective antioxidant and helps to protect skin cells from damaging UV rays and free radical damage. Vitamin C from watermelon and oranges is water soluble meaning it helps combat wrinkles and sagging from the inside of your cells by strengthening collagen and elastin which works to keep your skin firm and tight. Vitamin A and limonoids in limes provide lasting antioxidant protection whilst mint provides a refreshing taste whilst reducing inflammation, helping to sooth the body and reduce redness within your complexion.
