Skin Food and Juice

If you can drink this juice once a week, it helps to whiten your skin and reduce heatiness naturally. I call this watermelon lemon juice with a teaspoon of honey.

My suggestion is to buy half a watermelon and juice it at home. Cheaper and clean for whole family to drink. Squeeze a teaspoon of lemon juice into a cup of watermelon, add a bit of Acacia Honey.

Good things does not mean you should drink a lot. Moderate will be powerful enough....
Watermelon is a good source of vitamin A and beta carotene. Eating watermelon is actually better for your eyes than eating carrots in preventing age-related vision loss (such as macular degeneration and cataracts).
Other watermelon nutrients include vitamin C, thiamin, vitamin B6, and vitamin B1.
Watermelon provides more nutrients per calories than many other fruits. Besides including the antioxidants vitamin C, vitamin A, and beta carotene, research has recently discovered watermelon is rich in lycopene (a phytochemical). On average, watermelons have about 40% more lycopene than raw tomatoes. Watermelon is high in citrulline, a non-essential amino acid our bodies use to make arginine, an essential amino acid. Benefits of these amino acids include: removing ammonia from the body ,lowering blood pressure .
I think drink it once or twice a week is good enough. It will be too cooling to take it everyday.
