Watermelon has a high water content so its great for re-hydrating skin. It also contains A, B and C vitamins. Our skin needs Vitamin A to maintain a healthy moisture balance and repair itself. Topically Vitamin A has been shown to reduce signs of aging. While B vitamins have been shown to tone skin and give it an instant glow.
Honey is a natural humectant which means it helps draw water to skin and helps it retain that moisture. It's also anti-bacterial and anti-microbial so you get a acne fighting boost!
