Benefits of watermelon

Watermelon is full of vitamins such as Vitamin A, B6 and C and is also packed with lycopene and amino acids. It has  the following six benefits ;

Prevents Skin From Ageing 

As we get older our skin becomes thinner and less able to recover from damage. Our body is full of ‘free radicals’ that damage cells over time and can attributed to the cause of aging skin.

It is full of antioxidants such as lycopene and also vitamin C and A which helps reduce these free radicals that can slow down the signs of ageing.

The consumption of Vitamin A can encourage growth of collagen and elastin cells that helps your skin stay young and supple.

 Prevents Oil Production in Skin

Sebaceous glands secrete oil that can be troublesome for keeping skin clear. Watermelon is packed with Vitamin A, reducing skin pore size and the amount of oil that your sebaceous glands secrete. One of the benefits of watermelon is that it is  believed to help with acne due to these properties.

Promotes Hair Growth

Arginine (an amino acid) is essential in our bodies and helps with blood circulation in the scalp. Watermelon naturally contains a lot of citrulline that increases the level of arginine and is therefore good for promoting hair growth.

 Prevents Hair Loss

It is packed with Vitamin C, which helps your body to use non-heme iron – this ensures that enough iron is in your red blood cells to assist in carrying oxygen to your hair follicles, promoting healthy hair. Collagen is also needed for healthy hair growth and it is no surprise that one of the benefits of watermelon is that it helps promote collagen formation.

 Moisturises Hair

Watermelon Seed Oil is a very light oil, which helps to moisturise and works very well in watermelon shampoo.

 Hydrates Skin

Dehydrated skin can lead to a dull and dry appearance, but watermelon has such a high water content that it helps to keep the skin hydrated and moisturised. This can help to keep your skin supple and looking great.
