Watermelon is the August Scent-Sation
Each month at The Greenhouse Day Spa, we are excited to highlight the benefits one of nature’s many gifts to our health and wellness.
As we enter the heat of August, refreshing watermelons aren’t just a godsend on a hot summer day. From being heart-friendly to keeping your kidneys in good shape, this succulent treat also has a lot to offer your body. Here are the benefits the watermelon has lined up for your skin:

Brightens Skin and Fights Pigmentation
Watermelons contain an antioxidant compound called glutathione which has skin-lightening properties. Research has found that both oral and topical use of this compound can lighten skin.
Fights Wrinkles and Skin Dryness
Downing a wedge of watermelon will give you 25% of your daily value Vitamin C and it is a potent antioxidant in the synthesis of collagen.
Works as a Gentle Exfoliant
Just apply a little watermelon juice on your face for a natural exfoliation treatment. You can even use watermelons and salt to make an exfoliating and invigorating body scrub. To make the body scrub, mix equal quantities of organic sea salt and fresh watermelon – it’s that simple!

For our clients:
- Listen to your body. If you are not feeling well, please stay home. We would be happy to reschedule your appointment and are currently waiving any cancellation charges.

These steps will allow The Greenhouse Day Spa to open our doors, while doing our part in keeping our community healthy. We cannot wait to treat you to all of the things you have been missing and requesting: a massage, a facial, waxing, eyelash and eyebrow treatments and more! Personally, I am more than ready for the works!
