Coconut-Infused Products to Instantly Refresh Your Hair and Skin

Jul 4 2014 - 1:00pm

We already know coconut oil is a rock star beauty goody on its own [1], but when it's incorporated into hair and skin products it's equally beneficial — plus, it smells like a beach getaway! To get you prepped and pumped for Summer (since Memorial Day is just a few weeks away!), we've rounded up eight hair and skin products that incorporate the island nut. Coconut water has antioxidant properties and electrolytes to moisturize, while coconut oil does everything from hydrating dry hair to freshening breath [2]. Don't blame us if these products look delicious enough to eat.

Hair Serum

After taking a dip in the pool or ocean, mist your strands with this electrolyte-packed potion. It’s made from young green coconuts, which will make your hair smell like vacation while adding tons of hydration and shine.

CC Cream

Yes, even your CC cream can be infused with coconut water. This skin perfecter relies on coconut water since it’s made of cytokinins, an antiaging phytohormone that regulates cell division, increases the skin’s elasticity, and prevents sagging. Bonus points: it also includes antioxidant-rich kelp and detoxifying ginseng.

Face Mask

Throw this travel skin-saver in your bag before a Summer weekend getaway, and then use it after a day spent in the sun. The coconut water and shea butter concoction will help soothe any sunburns and add hydration back into your pores, so you can go out for the night with a glow.

Body Wash

Even if you can’t make it somewhere tropical to drink a real piña colada, you can still take an island getaway in your shower. This rum-cocktail-inspired body wash is composed of young green coconuts along with pineapple, orange, and musky scents. Yum!

Bonus: you can use these goodies on your lips, too!
