4. Think of it as an Insta Facial, Too
WTRMLN WTR is also great for your skin because it contains vitamin A, a nutrient required for sebum production that keeps hair moisturized. Vitamin A is also necessary for the growth of all bodily tissues, including skin and hair. You glow, girls and boys!

Watermelon has been shown to reduce muscle soreness and improve recovery time following exercise in athletes. WTRMLN WTR is packed with antioxidants, potassium and the amino acid L-citrulline. Take that, knots!
6. It Tastes Darn Good and Is Good For You
WTRMLN WTR is cold pressed, using the rind and flesh with a dash of organic lemon. It not only tastes yummy, it’s packed with electrolytes and contains more potassium than three bananas. Now, that’s b-a-n-a-n-a-s.
