The coconut oil trend is so not dying down. It’s natural, nourishing and good for every part of your body. There are so many uses for it, and so many products that contain it. You’d be surprised just how many of your favorite products actually use coconut oil.
Recently I overhauled my routine and started using coconut oil and coconut products in the morning and evening only just to see how coconut really can improve my skin. I was quite shocked just how clear and soft it became, so I’m carrying on with that routine now! Ready to get perfect skin and hair? Here are my favorite coconut products.
1. Banish those eye bags
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Eye Rescue available here.
I love Charlotte Tilbury products, somehow, she always gets it right! If you’ve heard me raving about the Magic Cream, you’ll know just how great it is when you want plump, clear skin overnight, the next level, though, is this Magic Eye Cream. Use it to firm up your eye area, reduce wrinkles and fight free radicals. Coconut oil and shea butter create a soothing, cooling effect for tired eyes! Buy it here.
2. Give your body a glow
NARS Monoi Body Glow available here.
This body oil is the perfect vacation accompaniment, it’s lightweight, multipurpose and will give your skin a glow while hydrating and draping it in fragrance. The flower is steeped in refined coconut extract for at least ten days. It’ll calm your skin, and prevent your tan from peeling. Buy it here.
3. Take a healing bath
Herbivore Coconut Milk Bath Soak available here.
There’s nothing better than a lovely bath. Anyone who thinks otherwise is wrong. If you want soft supple skin without having to exfoliate every single day, all you need to do is soak in coconut milk. Hey, if it was good enough for Cleopatra, it’s good enough for me! It’s formulated with coconut milk powder, which has anti-inflammatory properties and smells divine thanks to the vanilla essential oil. Next time you’re feeling stressed out, use this! Buy it here.
4. Treat your hair
Ouai Smooth Shampoo available here.
We love Ouai. Jen Atkin, the goddess behind the brand, knows a thing or two about beautiful hair. Just ask Chrissy Teigen and Kim Kardashian if you don’t believe us. This hydrating shampoo is infused with coconut water to hydrate hair, cleanse strands and replenish moisture levels for hair that is mega-smooth! Buy it here.
5. Set your makeup with coconut
Marc Jacobs Coconut Setting Spray available here.
Marc Jacobs has a seriously cool line of coconut products. This setting spray prolongs the wear of your makeup and gives you a fresh, radiant glow. It contains five forms of coconut, including cold-pressed water, juice, and pulp, so it’ll hydrate your skin while it makes sure your skin looks fresh all day. I seriously love this, if like me, your skin tends to absorb makeup, this is the radiant boost you need! Buy it here.
6. Cleanse and hydrate your skin
Kopari Coconut Melt available here.
Kopari is the newest brand to take advantage of coconut oil, you seriously can’t beat the simple stuff if you want perfect hair and skin. You only need a little pinch of this premium coconut oil, it contains 100 percent pure organic coconut oil and works against redness, dryness, dullness, eczema-prone skin and chemically-treated hair. It’s the holy grail! Buy it here.
7. Swap out your foundation
bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Gel Cream available here.
Ok, so I love this. I occasionally swap it out for my heavier foundation on a sunny day, and will definitely be taking it on vacation with me. It’s cooling and soothing, and so lightweight it feels like a second skin, but it evens and covers your complexion, so it’s basically your skin but better. Plus it contains coconut derived ingredients to give you better skin in just one week. Buy it here.
8. Give your skin a pick-me-up
Herbivore Rose Hibiscus Coconut Water Face Mist available here.
Do you struggle with dry, dull skin throughout the day? Then you seriously need to put this on top of your wishlist. I bought this and never looked back. It’s soothing and cooling, perfect for when your skin feels tight or sore and hydrates your skin throughout the day, so if you feel you’re losing that glow, a spritz of this coconut water will instantly refresh and rejuvenate your look! I swear by it. Buy it here.
9. Get shimmery
Marc Jacobs Dew Drops Highlighter available here.
Another Marc Jacobs product that you really need to try is the Dew Drops highlighter. It has five coconut actives and Provitamin B5 inside, so not only will it give you a flattering peach shimmer, it’ll refresh, hydrate and condition your skin. I like to mix it in with my Coconut Primer or foundation to get a subtle shimmery glow all over. It’s perfect for this time of year! Buy it here.
10. Treat your skin
Earth Tu Face Honey Coconut Mask available here.
If your skin has been playing up and you’ve tried everything, don’t give up, this is my secret weapon. This mask heals inflammation, tightens pores and plumps your skin, while soothing and hydrating it. It contains raw honey, coconut oil, and lavender and rose petals, so it’s all natural goodness. You’ll see a massive improvement in just a short time if you use this a few times a week. Buy it here.
