Why We’re Loving Coconuts – And You Should Too
We know we’re not alone in how the scent of coconut has the ability to transport us to a beautiful tropical island when used in our favorite body products and the best fragrances. Even when we’re not able to afford a luxury tropical vacation, we can still appreciate where these wonderful plants come from. However, these versatile trees are not merely found in the islands of the Caribbean and Pacific, they are also native to countries such as Indonesia, the Philippines, Brazil, the Maldives, and India. No matter where they’re cultivated from, we’ve researched our favorite beauty tips for coconuts and came up with a list of how coconuts can change your life for the better.
Nowadays, it’s hard not to view coconuts splattered across our favorite fitness and beauty pages. In fact, coconut water is now promoted as a natural energy or sports drink having low levels of fat, carbohydrates, and calories, and significant electrolyte content. Not to be confused with coconut water, coconut milk is the liquid that comes from the grated meat of the brown coconut. Both are extremely hydrating, while coconut milk has a high fat content that is mainly used for cooking.
Derived from the meat of the coconut, coconut oil is not only amazing to cook with for its sweet flavor and digestive properties, but it is also amazing for skin and hair care. In its extra virgin organic grade form, coconut oil has amazing anti-inflammatory properties that help with symptoms associated with rosacea, psoriasis, eczema because it naturally cools and balances the skin. Due to its chemical structure and hydrating properties, coconut oil has been cultivated into the best body butters and moisturizers that are safe enough for daily use.
Here are some beauty tips that you can use to replace your favorite products!
- When your lips are feeling chapped or in need of some hydration, use coconut oil on your lips for some added moisture, or even as a top coat to make your favorite matte lipsticks less drying.
- On days when you’ve treated yourself to a manicure, rub some coconut oil on your cuticles to ensure that your cuticles will not dry out and your hands will contain their freshly manicured glow.
- When you want to ensure that your legs stay silky smooth, lather coconut oil on your legs instead of shaving cream to ensure that your legs are hydrated and to prevent irritation.
- Organic, virgin coconut oil can even prevent stretch marks and make existing stretch marks less visible – making it a must have for pregnant mamas during their pregnancies.
