Thought watermelon was just a snack? Silly girl, here are some fantastic uses for this pretty, pink fruit that you never thought to try!

A soother for sunburnt skin

For an alternative to the ol’ Aloe Vera, soak a cotton pad with the juice of a cold watermelon and apply to you burns. Let it soak in for about 15 minutes then rinse with cool water.
