This refreshing fruit tastes great and has multiple uses than just being consumed.
For those who aren’t aware of the current watermelon trend, the fruit has been hyped up for being used as an active ingredient in skincare.
Yes, you heard that right! So if you haven’t gotten a chance to get in the new trend game of trying out watermelon skincare, here are some amazing DIY ways you can do so right away.
Watermelon Face Mask
If you have one of those fancy home-mask makers, then that is probably the best way to go forward with this mask. However, if you do not have it, we suggest you get a regular paper towel sheet mask from the drug store. You can even DIY this entirely by making the sheet mask yourself at home and cutting out the necessary flaps for nostrils, eyes, and lips. Next, you have to get hold of the following ingredients to mix together as per your requirement.
- Watermelon Juice
- Aloe Vera Gel
- Tea Tree Oil
- Olive Oil
- Lemon Juice
Next, you can pour the mixture into the fancy mask-making appliance and ready your fruit mask within minutes. However, if you are doing it the other way, then soak your sheet mask in the mixture for about 40 to 60 minutes. Then proceed to apply the mask over your face and leave it for around 10 to 15 minutes. Remove it when the time is up and discard the mask.
Now, with soft circular motions, work up the leftover serum over your face to easily absorb it in the skin. There is no need to rinse it off, and the best results may occur when applying the mask right before you sleep and leaving the serum overnight. Next thing you know, you’ll wake up to naturally glowing skin the next day.
Watermelon Face Mist
Next up, we have the refreshing spritz spray enriched with soothing qualities of watermelon to refreshing, hydrate, and awaken the skin – all in one go! All you have to do is mix the following ingredients, preferably in a shaker, to give them a good shake with ice for instant cooling.
- Watermelon Juice
- Aloe Vera Gel
- Rose Water
- Few Drops of Vitamin C Serum
After combining these ingredients, and because you know it is a spray-on face mist, keep the consistency liquid and diluted with rose water to make it easy to use. Now spray it on a hot summer day on the beach, before make-up to awaken the skin or after make-up to set your face for a natural glow, which is all up to you.
What we can assure you is that there really is no going back from this face mist because, with the amazing scent of watermelon and skincare qualities of the ingredients combined, you may never like any other mist ever again.
Watermelon Sugar Lip Scrub
Last but not least, we have watermelon sugar lip scrub in line. Not only is it super easy and effective, but it is indeed edible. So no worrying about using chemical lip exfoliants that have a chance of getting consumed by mistake and contain harmful chemicals. All you have to do is mix watermelon juice with honey and lemon juice.
Mixing these ingredients in equal parts or as you may like would give you a juicy consistency. However, we are making a lip scrub, so you would use your oven to dehydrate the mixture or simply leave it out overnight to get the formulation right. You can mix in smaller sugar crystals that aren’t too harsh on your lips the next day, and Voila! You have your very own watermelon sugar lip scrub.
Say goodbye to dead skin and chapped lips and say hello to soft, plump lippies that smell like refreshing watermelon. You may even get the tint of red through the watermelon juice being the main ingredient in this scrub. Talk about a 2-in-1 deal!
Watermelon is a really versatile ingredient for skincare and can easily be used as an active ingredient for cosmetics, skincare, and even hair care. In love with watermelons all the way? Take a look at our extensive collection of refreshing clicks of watermelon every time you open a new tab.
