Watermelon – Skin Connection

Grab some watermelon this season while you still can. Aside from being one of the tastiest fruits, you will also be doing your skin a GREAT service. The more watermelon, the less chances of skin cancer.

The Asian Pacific Journal of Cancer Prevention recommends, based on their extensive research, that you protect yourself from the rays of the sun by eating a slice or 2 of watermelon. It is rich in lycopene which shields your skin the UV rays that are the cancer causing “agents.”

One portion of watermelon contains up to 10mg or as much as 4 tomatoes.

Needless to say, this is intended for consumption, not skin application

. . unless you enjoy sticking to the grass.
