Want flawless skin? Two words: Coconut water!
If you thought coconut oil was the best these tropical fruits had to offer, think again! Not only is coconut water rejuvenating, full of electrolytes and absolutely delicious, but it will also make your skin glow like the sand on the beach. Here’s how to use it!
Normal Skin: A simple wash with coconut water will give you a glowing, smooth, and even complexion. This light wash will revitalize your skin cells leaving your skin radiant, and will instantly reverse any evidence of bad night’s sleep.
Dry Skin: Coconut water is an excellent humectant, which will lock in all the moisture and minerals that your skin needs. Saturate a cotton pad with this natural elixir and use it as a toner before topping it off with your favorite, silicone-free moisturizer (more on this next week)
Oily Skin: With its light consistency, coconut water is perfect as a natural moisturizer. It helps to control the skin’s production of sebum by hydrating the face rather than stripping oils out. Skip any drying treatment and massage this into your skin instead: you’ll be glad to see any excess shine gone as the coconut water stops overproduction of oil.
Problematic Skin: A coconut water wash, toner, moisturizer, or even coconut-water-added-makeup (look out for a sneak peek of our new liquid foundation soon!) can treat acne, rosacea, and other skin issues. Coconut water has fantastic anti-viral, anti-microbial, and anti-fungal properties, which protect the skin from infections like erysipelas or cellulitis. It can also block up to 20% of UV rays when applied topically, acting as a natural sunblock and defense against skin cancer.
