Much more than just a key ingredient in daiquiris (although, we know that’s an incredibly important job), watermelon is the latest superfruit that’s tipped to transform your complexion. Jam-packed with precious moisturise to restore skin’s youthful ‘bounce’, this also boasts a cocktail of essential phytonutrients to nourish and revitalise dulled, winter-stressed complexions. 

You'd be forgiven for believing that the primary component of your overused emoji is, well, water (96% to be precise), but there's a lot more to this photogenic fruit than H2O. Brimming with citruline - a circulatory-boosting amino acid which doubles as an ultra-mild exfoliant - as well as lycopene (an anti-inflammatory phytonutrient), this fruity symbol of the summer is a brilliant addition to your winter skin care arsenal.

Suitable for all skin types, watermelon is particularly brilliant for those who're prone to blemishes, suffer from redness or have particularly flaky, dry complexions. Plus, it works wonders for lessening fine lines - preventing their development (thanks to a wealth of antioxidants) and pausing their progression.

Bursting onto the beauty scene thanks to our own {K-Beauty} experts, Sarah Lee and Christine Chang of brand {Glow Recipe}, their {Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask} is pink (!!) and infinitely Instagrammable... not to mention miraculous. Causing a furore on social media, this jelly-textured treatment works to boost your 'bounce' and grant your skin that hallowed SoKo glow.

Need a little lift? Equip yourself with Uma's {Absolute Anti Ageing Face Mask}, which stars kaolin clay infused with precious, cell-revitalising extracts (including watermelon) to exhibit a quick 'lifting', firming, tightening and toning benefit. A multi-tasking treatment mask, this combats all the common signs of 'slow down', to diminish visibility of pores and gently refine your skin's texture to enhance its light-reflecting capabilities.

Su-Man's latest offering contains a sweet array of watermelon, papaya and pomegranate extracts to swiftly dispel dullness and restore your face to flawless. Inspired by founder Su-Man Hsu’s childhood routine of using watermelon rind to tone and brighten her complexion, this irresistibly pink {Refining Facial Polish} will eliminate dullness and leave your skin looking 'reborn'.

And fans of le sheet mask should sample Skin Laundry's fantastic {Hydrating Radiance Facial Treatment Mask} - it's the skin incarnation of those clever fabric-conditioning sheets that you lob in the dryer. Impregnated with copious softening, brightening extracts, you'll spot (you guessed it) sitting pretty in the INCI list...
