Hi my beauties,
How are you all doing? I hope you all had a lot of fun in the last two months of festivities. However, this is also the time when we damage our skin and hair with makeup, heat and styling. Therefore, to look our radiant best in the winter round of the festive season, we need to pamper and show some extra love to our skin and hair. And an inexpensive way of doing so would be adding coconut water to our beauty regimes. So let us see why we need to incorporate this magic water.
⦁ Moisturising with coconut water
With winter around the corner, our biggest skincare concern is dry skin and there can be no other cheap and effective solution than coconut water. All you need to do is apply cotton balls dipped in coconut water on your skin regularly and notice the difference. Coconut water is also the purest liquid on earth after water, therefore it is ideal for those with sensitive skin.
⦁ It acts as a makeup remover and toner
If you don’t have the resources to splurge on expensive makeup remover, use coconut water to remove your makeup. This detoxifying drink can double up as a cleansing makeup remover. If you add a few drops of lemon juice to it, it can act as a brightening toner in your skin care regime.
⦁ It has age-defying properties
The first signs of mature, ageing skin are fine lines, wrinkles and dryness. Proper exfoliation and moisturising regularly can delay and reduce these signs of ageing. All you need to do is mix coconut water with yoghurt and use it as a pack. Coconut water has cytokines which promote cell growth and help in skin repair and damage control. Therefore, use it twice it a week for beautiful, supple and younger-looking skin.
⦁ It helps fight those annoying pimples
You have probably tried every other product and remedy under the sun but have overlooked your favourite beach beverage for treating those pimples and acne that bother you so much. All you need to do is apply coconut water and honey on your face every day and wash it off after some time. Coconut water, due to its antibacterial properties, helps and prevents pimple causing germs and bacteria. Regular usage will also reduce pimple and acne scars like magic, so don’t forget to give it a try.
⦁ It helps in fighting skin infections
Coconut water has antibacterial, antifungal and anti-parasitic properties. Therefore it works as a magic potion when it comes to fighting and preventing skin infections. We often infect our skin in the harsh weather, monsoon or humidity, giving rise to a host of bacteria and insects and fungi. Therefore regular topical application can prevent as well as cure these infections.
⦁ It treats sun tan like magic
Suffering from sun tan or sunburn? Haven’t found any good remedy to treat sun tan? Look no further! Coconut water mixed with fuller’s earth is all you need. Both are very easily available and easy to use. Apply this mixture to affected areas consistently for a few days and watch the tan fade away.
⦁ It helps in hair growth
We have all heard countless benefits of coconut oil in causing and aiding hair growth, but another wonder ingredient that can stimulate and cause hair growth is coconut water. Massage your scalp with coconut water on every alternative day. Coconut water is a rich source of potassium and it is one of those nutrients that are increasingly beneficial in causing hair growth.
⦁ Adds shine to frizzy unmanageable hair
Tired of frizzy, dry, unmanageable hair? All you need is a good dose of moisture. And this intense moisturisation can occur when you use coconut water as a hair rinse. Coconut water due to its deep conditioning and moisture content not only will tame the frizz and flyaways but will also add that extra shine that will surely make heads turn wherever you go.
⦁ Prevents itchy scalp and dandruff
We have already spoken at length about coconut water’s antibacterial, antifungal properties and these properties can not only prevent infections on your face and body but also on your scalp. Since winter is the most common problem time for dandruff, the regular application of coconut water on the scalp will prevent dry itchy scalp and dandruff.
