Why Coconut Water is The Tropical Secret to Glowing Skin
What is Coconut Water?
Coconut water has quickly made its way to store shelves as a replacement for name-brand sports drinks because of its high concentration of replenishing electrolytes. But coconut water’s hydrating benefits go way beyond your glass. Coconut water also has incredible benefits for your skin when applied topically, so stay tuned for the inside scoop on why coconut water is a true skincare superhero.
First - let’s dive into exactly what coconut water is. Coconut water is the clear liquid naturally found inside of coconuts (unlike coconut milk, which contains both coconut water & coconut meat). Similar to aloe vera, coconut water is made of around 95% water and a 5% blend of nutrients - including skin moisturizing sugars, skin nourishing amino acids, phytohormones, vitamin C and minerals such as potassium and magnesium.
Skincare Benefits of Coconut Water
Plumps and hydrates the skin
Dry or dehydrated skin? The sugars and amino acids naturally found inside coconut water help to deeply nourish and hydrate skin, without making you feel oily or greasy - making coconut water the perfect moisturizer for all skin types (more on this below).
Quick Tip: if you begin to feel dry patches in the middle of the day when you already have a full face of makeup on, make sure you always have a Daily Hydrating & Setting Mist Mini in your bag to rejuvenate your skin and get rid of dry patches on-the-go.
Replenishes skin with vitamins & antioxidants
Coconut water is like a daily multivitamin in skincare form. It is jam-packed with skin-loving vitamins and antioxidants that have an array of benefits, including soothing and detoxifying the skin and calming inflammation.
Balances the skin & helps fight breakouts
In addition to being detoxifying and anti-inflammatory, coconut water is also anti-microbial, making it a perfect addition to your acne care routine. Coconut water also balances the skin by helping to reduce oil production gently, without causing irritation - making this superstar ingredient perfect for all skin types from oily to sensitive to dry.
Minimizes signs of aging
Because coconut water is full of antioxidants, it helps to fight free radicals and improve skin elasticity. There is even budding evidence to suggest that the vitamin C in coconut water can help with collagen formation, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
