Enjoyed in everything from salads to cocktails, there is no question watermelon is one of the best summertime treats.

But food isn't the only way to enjoy the juicy fruit on National Watermelon Day, which falls on 3 August each year, as a number of beauty brands have a selection of great watermelon-inspired products to check out too. Read on for a round-up.

Burt's Bees Watermelon Lip Balm

To keep the pout moisturised and soft, check out this fruity addition to the popular lip balm offering at Burt's Bees. Made with hydrating coconut oil and beeswax, this formula also features the sweet, refreshing flavour of freshly sliced watermelon.

Ciaté London's Watermelon Burst Hydrating Primer

Harnessing the power of skin-smoothing niacinamide and hydrating hyaluronic acid, this water-based primer is suitable for all skin types. For best results, apply a thin layer of the watermelon-scented serum to the face after skincare but before make-up. For an extra comforting application, keep the tube in the fridge to help soothe and depuff the face on hot or humid days.

GLOW RECIPE's Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask

For baby-soft skin, look no further than GLOW RECIPE's sought-after mask. Made with hyaluronic acid and pore-refining alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), as well as watermelon extract, this gel-textured formula gets to work while you sleep. After mixing the formula, apply a generous layer of the gel-like mask to the face as the final step in an evening skincare routine and rinse off in the morning.

Milk Makeup's Watermelon Brightening Face Serum

Swap out your regular face serum for this super cool twist-up stick option. Made with watermelon fruit extract, Swiss garden cress sprout extract, and vitamins A, C, and, E, this product has been designed to even skin tone and offer up a fresh glow. After cleansing and toning, swipe the face serum all over the skin and gently pat in with your fingertips. Too easy!
