Watermelon isn’t merely a favorite summertime snack. As both a water and vitamin dense fruit, it also helps to moisturize, repair, and protect your skin when applied topically. Combined with honey, a natural humectant that helps pull watermelon’s moisture boosting properties deep into your skin, this serum will saturate your skin with hydrating and healing properties that will both help to prevent long-term sun damage and alleviate the immediate discomfort of sunburn. And you only need a bit of it to do the trick.
Here, what you need:
1 tablespoon fresh watermelon juice
1 tablespoon raw honey.
Mix watermelon juice with honey until well combined.
Apply to clean, sun burn areas in gentle circular motions
Let the serum penetrate for 20 minutes before rinsing residue off with cool water.
Eat a diet rin antioxidants before sun exposure to provide added sun protection from the inside out
