Ten Ways To Work Coconuts Into Your Beauty Routine

The coconut has a lot to live up to. A popular new super-food, it’s taking center stage thanks to celebrities’ endorsements, editors loving its oil, and now, an increasing number of beauty products spotlighting the nut. It may be a trend, but it’s one that lives up to the hype. The super-affordable oil can be used to nourish your scalp (Khloe Kardashian swears it makes her hair grow faster and thicker), soothe dry skin, tame cuticles, and it adds healthy fat to your diet when used in the kitchen. Coconut water—‘nature’s Gatorade’—is as delicious as it is healthy: the low-calorie water is full of electrolytes and vitamins. And cosmetics? It’s an easy way to work the extract into your routine without messy jars of oil. You’ll find our ten favourite coconut-laden products—including oil and water recommendations—in our slideshow!
