It's about as much a summertime staple as they come. And if you're like us, watermelon has a home at just about every summer meal from Memorial Day to Labor Day. But no longer is it reserved for the kitchen table. This sweet treat is now finding a place in skincare products too.

Typically seen in watermelon seed extract or oil form, this ingredient is ideal for hydration. (Think about it, watermelon is about 92 percent water after all.) So you'll likely see watermelon as an ingredient in products targeting irritated or inflamed skin. But it doesn't stop there. Watermelon is also a superstar when it comes to promoting glowing skin thanks to a bevy of fatty acids found within!

We've done the dirty work for you and rounded up some of the all-star watermelon-infused skincare products on the market right now. From the classics that kicked off the trend to the latest and greatest, all of these goodies put watermelon to good use!
