Miraculous Melon – Sweeter Than You Think
Melons come in many shapes, colours, and sizes, and when it comes to eating, there are some you enjoy more than others. Even if melons aren’t your favourite fruit, you can’t deny their health and beauty benefits.
To ensure your body remains properly hydrated, you aim to drink at least 8 glasses of water and herbal tea each day, but don’t forget the hydrating benefits of fruits, such as magnificent melons. While you may eat melons for their pleasant sweet flavour, don’t forget their high-water content contributes to your daily hydration. Melons are also high in energy-boosting B vitamins and potassium-rich electrolytes, making them perfect for hot and humid days or after working out. Don’t forget you can juice melon, add them to your smoothies, or purée them in a blender for a sweet and healthy treat.
Beauty Boosting Benefits
If you’ve yet to try melon on your skin, then you don’t know what you are missing. Melon offers an array of beauty-boosting benefits, a few of which include:
- A natural source of skin-firming collagen
- Naturally occurring nutrients hydrate and moisturise
- Vitamins A, B, and C improve skin tone and minimise fine lines and wrinkles
- Natural enzymes gently exfoliate and cleanse, leaving you with clear, smooth, and glowing skin
Melons Stimulate Hair Growth
To grow out your luscious locks or enrich your hair and scalp with nutrients that stimulate hair growth, give melons a try. Rich in hair-healthy vitamins A and B, folic acid, and inositol, you can encourage hair growth and prevent hair loss.
Melon is sticky when applied topically, but you can avoid the mess with your favourite melon bath and body products. For the nutritional benefits, a cup or two of melon 2 or 3 days a week will do!
