Here’s how muskmelon can help you get a healthy and glowing skin
Muskmelon, cantaloupe or kharbuja is not only an extremely refreshing snack for the summer, but also a great fruit to make your skin soft and glowing. Along with helping the skin to stay hydrated, the fruit is packed with nutrients such as vitamin A, B and C, which help it to stay healthy, young and supple. Here are three ways that you can easily add muskmelons to your beauty regime. SUNNY SIDE UP: Since the cantaloupe is made up of 90% water, applying it to your face helps in reducing any signs of dryness from over exposure to the sun. Try a cooling mask twice a week, made of mashed melon, yoghurt and oatmeal and apply it to your skin for 15-20 minutes. Next, gently massage this and rinse it off with tepid water. While the antioxidant properties of vitamin C in the fruit will treat any UV-related skin damage, the zinc in yoghurt will help calm the burning sensation due to sunburn. Lastly, the oatmeal will help reduce any inflammation and reverse skin damage caused by pollution and sunrays.
