I’ve long enjoyed the benefits of including coconut in my healthy eating plan! Fresh coconut as well as flour, oil, milk, butter, and cream are excellent ways to take in this nutrient dense food. Coconut has been shown to be nourishing for your body, rich in fiber, and packed with essential vitamins and minerals.
There are many uses for coconut in the kitchen, but did you know it’s also a highly effective ingredient in beauty products? There are many reasons this is true, one of them being it’s incredible moisturizing properties. Any beauty lover knows that when it comes to beautiful skin, preventing dryness is key. In addition, coconut is also naturally antibacterial and anti-fungal. It doesn’t hurt that it reminds me of vacation and smells heavenly, too!
With winter approaching, it’s important to find ways to keep our skin healthy and soft. We’ve rounded up the best products made with coconut, to help you maintain smooth skin during the cold weather months. These products also make fabulous gifts for any beauty lover on your list!
Start With A Fresh Canvas
The Too Faced Hangover Primer is an amazing product to help you achieve a flawless complexion everyday. It goes on feeling light and creates a fresh canvas for your favorite foundation. Made with hydrating coconut water, it helps makeup go on more smoothly and brightens your skin at the same time.
Take It All Off
I’m always looking for products to simplify my nighttime skin care routine. Finding the right makeup remover that gently does the job is key. Signature Club A Coconut Meltdown Cleansing Crème fits the bill! It melts away dirt and make up, leaving me with clean slate for the rest of my skin care regimen!
Keep Your Skin and Lips Soft, Smooth (and Lightly Scented!)
Everyone needs this wonderful little trio in their handbag or makeup bag, the Perlier Shea Butter Duo & Lip Balm. Also would make a great stocking stuffer! This luxurious feeling lip balm is made with coconut milk and organic shea butter, preventing dry lips. The super moisturizing mini shea butters are lightly scented with sweet almond oil and lavender, in the perfect size for travel.
Hydrate and Sooth
Last but not least, an absolute winter beauty must-have! The Perlier Shea Butter Body Balm is perfect for areas that need a little extra TLC once the cold weather strikes. Feet, elbows, and hands are more susceptible to dryness in winter. This organic shea butter body balm with coconut milk is the solution to quench your skin and leave it lightly scented. Use it anywhere you need an intensive dose of moisture! I use it before bed and wake up with super soft hands and feet.
This time of year is busy! In addition to taking care of your skin, make sure to care for yourself and your health in other ways, too. Drinking plenty of water, getting enough rest, eating healthy food, and enjoying plenty of exercise and fresh air are all ways to ensure you feel your best this winter!
