Coconuts are everywhere these days. They are in our smoothies, juices, pantry, and now our bathrooms! They are truly a beauty food, of course because of all the benefits coconuts provide for our insides, but even more so, for our outsides. I’m sure you’ve heard it before- The skin is our largest organ, so when it comes to beauty routines, we are huge believers in choosing the healthiest products, which is why we came up with and entire coconut beauty routine! We tried a ton of formulas on our quest to find the best, non-toxic coconut based beauty products, and narrowed down our absolute favorites to share with you. Now, they are staples in our bathrooms. We’re completely hooked, we smell like coconuts, and we can’t wait for you to try them all so you can let us know how they work for you!
Palermo Coconut and Oatmeal Soap Bar– This beautiful bar of soap is hand-made with love in Brooklyn, NY by Founder, Jessica Morelli. Made with organic ingredients and gluten-free oatmeal. Moisturizing coconut milk and firming oatmeal have been known to gently combat skin ailments such as eczema and psoriasis, while jojoba oil gently nourishes and heals. This bar is ideal for sensitive or dry skin.
DIY Coconut Mask- It’s no secret that we’re anything but lacking coconut-oil in our kitchen, so on those days that you have a bit more pampering time, why not mix up your very own at-home face mask. Gather all the ingredients, mix away, apply to damp skin, and leave on for 5 minutes while your body moisturizer sets in. Rinse off to reveal refreshed and moisturized skin.
