Watermelon Moisturizer & Toner

Calm and cleanse: More sensitive skin calls for an easy two-step routine. Start by combining watermelon (for hydration) and mashed banana (to ease inflammation) for a hydrating moisturizer. Follow it up with a face toner that cleanses and shrinks the appearance of pores with the help of watermelon juice, witch hazel and distilled water!

Watermelon Sugar Scrub

Exfoliate and polish: Don’t stop at your face! Bring together watermelon juice, lemon juice, sugar and watermelon rind zest for a gentle body scrub that will make your body glow. Besides, it not only helps bring out your best skin, it smells amazing, too!
