Watermelon

Over the summer I developed an obsession for watermelon because they’re full of vitamins such as Vitamin A, B6 and C. Watermelon are also packed with lycopene and amino acids, all combining to contribute towards healthy skin, aiding the immune system, and  full of antioxidants. Watermelon is also very hydrating, contains 92% water, and is very low in calories.

Did you know watermelon can reduce oil production in your skin so you get less acne and breakouts? Also, watermelon help heal old acne. Watermelon is packed with Vitamin A, reducing skin pore size and the amount of oil that your sebaceous glands secrete.

Benefit of eating watermelon

  • Improve Heart Health
  • Lower Inflammation
  •  Oxidative Stress
  •  Helps Prevent Macular Degeneration.
  • After a workout, reach for watermelon instead of a Gatorade drink because watermelon help relieve muscle soreness.

“When nobody else celebrates you, learn to celebrate  yourself. When nobody else compliments you, then compliment yourself. It’s not up to other people to keep you encouraged. It’s up to you. Encouragement should come from the inside”.  We need to encourage yourself and not wait for someone else. Today I dare you to look in the mirror say three nice things about yourself. I say I am worthy , I am a child of God and I am destined for greatness.
