Watermelon season is here!
🍉 Do you gravitate towards water-rich fruits this time of year?!
While watermelons are mostly water (hello hydration!), they’re also soaked with a body-lovin’ antioxidant called lycopene. With each juicy bite, lycopene helps protect your pretty cells from damage, supports your heart, and reduce inflammation — the main culprit for undesired skin challenges.
How to find the One!
