Coconut is not only a fresh and delicious tropical fruit, but it’s also full of an abundance of nutrients that make it a powerful natural remedy. First and foremost, including coconut water in your diet could greatly improve your overall health. Coconut water is vastly different from heavier coconut milk; it is a clear liquid that comes from young green coconuts.
Producers of coconut water have compared it to popular sports drinks due to its rehydrating properties and high potassium content that helps to regulate blood sugar. What this means for your skin is that coconut water is a nourishing drink that could deeply hydrate and regulate your natural body functions so that your skin remains soft, moist, and healthy.
Coconut water also stimulates healthy digestion and improves circulation.
This directly benefits your skin, providing it with vital nutrients and stimulating circulation to encourage new cell growth. As you may have gathered by now, all of these health benefits make coconut a powerful beauty ingredient for youthful skin.
Your skin needs constant hydration and nutrition to look its best. Enjoying a refreshing drink like coconut water could stimulate circulation in your complexion. Not only could this increase in circulation give your skin a fresh, healthy glow, but it encourages your skin to naturally exfoliate each day.
As you may have noticed, with age, the complexion can often become dull, flat and lackluster. However, boosting circulation in the skin stimulates exfoliation and new cell growth. In layman’s terms, this improved circulation which could enable your complexion to produce new, healthy skin cells to keep wrinkles at bay!
Coconut Oil Benefits: Dry Skin Therapy
But the coconut benefits don’t stop there… Coconut oil is another essential beauty ingredient that deeply hydrates and heals dry, damaged skin. Additionally, coconut oil contains protective antioxidants that could neutralize free-radical damage and prevent injury to the skin, reducing the risk of wrinkles and possibly even skin disease.
Your skin is greatly affected by the topical ingredients that you apply to it. It can easily absorb product ingredients to penetrate the bloodstream and potentially affect your circulatory system.
Make no mistake that the products that you put on your skin will end up in your body one way or another! That’s why I encourage you to read your product ingredient labels carefully. Natural ingredients benefit the health of your body. Chemical ingredients could leave you at risk for allergic reactions and toxic overload in your system, resulting in unhealthy, dehydrated and damaged skin. It’s as simple as that.
It’s clear that coconut provides two major beauty benefits:
Internal: Coconut water hydrates the skin and stimulates circulation to promote healthy cell growth.
External: Coconut oil moisturizes the surface of the skin and protects the complexion from free-radical damage.
Coconut is an essential part of a healthy diet, and it could also greatly improve the quality of your skin when used in your beauty products!
Healthy skin starts with a healthy diet, and you can protect and improve the quality of your skin even more by using natural, nourishing anti-aging ingredients in your beauty products.
Here’s to staying healthy, and simply beautiful!
