Beauty fruit: melon

The summer season is very enjoyable for me. Nature is at its full bloom, holidays are finally here and it is somehow (the best) time to relax a bit....pure bliss! Summer is also for me synonymous to gorgeous and juicy fruits, delicious smoothies, and refreshing homemade ice-creams.
For those who have ever spent holidays in mediterranean countries, you may have strolled through those fantastic local markets offering their best fruits and veggies on a Saturday morning. Stunning and mouth watering, isn't? loving it!

So today, I want to write about one of my favourite fruit: melon.

Containing almost 90% of water, melon is highly refreshing and low calorie. Melon is a superstar in terms of vitamins (A, B, C, Beta carotene), oligo-elements (potassium and magnesium), and anti-oxidants content.
The orange pulp is also rich in fibers which play an important role in body elimination functions.

I have already mentionned that excellent diet and great skincare routine are key to a glowing skin. Including melon as healthy snacks (while relaxing on the beach or on a terrasse :-)) in your regime is a wonderful way to keep your body hydrated and skin plumped.

Wanting to give a instant youthful glow to your skin? try this extra simple DIY recipe: apply slices of melon onto cleansed face and leave it for 10 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water. Gently pat dry. Skin is left radiant and clear.

Do you like melon? What is your top beauty fruit? why?


  1. I love melon, here in my country (north italy) where the weather is not as hot as the south melons arrive a bit untasted :( but i suggest not to buy on the markets in the streets...they're full of nasty pesticides and such :( best to buy local and organic fruit and vegetables!

    Big hugs, xx

  2. Thanks for your comment!...totally agree with you :-)))
    Remember all the delicious "anguria" and "melone" I have eaten every summer in Italy :-)))
