Watermelon Toner for Oily Skin

You know what day today is.  You've been looking forward to it all week.  Nothing is going to stand in your way tonight.


Watermelons could just be nature's perfect skin care product. It is high in beta-carotene, water, antioxidants as well as a vitamins A, B6, and C, potassium, iron, calcium, and fiber. The seeds contain selenium, essential omega 6 and omega 9 fatty acids, zinc, and vitamin C all of which help fight free radical damage and aging. Watermelon is loaded with citrulline, an amino acid credited with helping skin's healing and regenerative processes. It also contains lycopene, which packs twice the punch of the better known beta-carotene which protects skin from sun damage. Watermelons are high in glutathione, which helps cleanse food of the hazards of oxidized fat.
