Coconut water is one of the best things you can add to your daily diet. Loaded with natural vitamins and minerals, coconut water can do wonders for our overall health. But do you know it is great for our skin too?
Yes, the essential vitamins and minerals present in coconut water can do wonders for your skin. Other than drinking it up on a daily basis, you can also add coconut water to your skincare routine.
While there are many skin care products available in the market today claiming to be packed with the goodness of coconut water, we recommend you to take the natural route. Get coconut water from a local vendor and use it to do a quick facial at home.
A single coconut water is these days priced at INR 60 and it is way cheaper than any other beauty product. For this facial, you just need 1 coconut water and some kitchen staples. Here is a step by step guide for you -
Step 1: Use Coconut Water To Wash Your Face
Take some coconut water in a bowl and use it to wash your face. Splash your face with coconut water. Do not forget your neck. Once done, let the coconut water naturally absorb into your skin. Do not pat dry.
Coconut water has moisturising properties, it will smoothen your skin, and make it feel fresh.
Step 2: Tone Your Face With Coconut Water And Rose Water
Next, in a bowl, take some rose water and coconut water. Mix the two ingredients well. Using a cotton ball, apply this mix all over your face. Let it dry naturally. This will help you tone your skin. Your skin will feel tighter and smoother.
Step 3: Exfoliate Your Face With Coconut Water And Coffee Scrub
It is next time to scrub your skin to get rid of all the dead skin layers, whiteheads, and blackheads. To make this face scrub, add 1 tsp coffee powder, 1 tbsp coconut water, and 1 tsp aloe vera gel. Mix all the ingredients well to make a paste. Apply this scrub all over your face and neck. Keep it for 5 minutes and then start to gently scrub. Wash off with normal water.
Step 4: Massage With Coconut Water Face Cream
Massaging your face will help you increase blood circulation which will give out a natural glow. In a bowl, add 1 tbsp aloe vera gel and 1 tsp coconut water. Mix the two ingredients well. Your massage cream is ready. Gently massage this cream all over your face and neck. Let it naturally absorb into your skin.
Step 5: Get Glowing Skin With Coconut Water Face Pack
Lastly, prepare a face mask to get glowing skin using coconut water and some other common kitchen ingredients.
In a bowl, add 1 tbsp coconut water, 1 tsp gram flour or besan, a pinch of turmeric powder, and 1 tsp of honey. Mix all the ingredients together. Apply this face pack on your face and neck. Keep it on for 20 minutes and then wash with normal water.
We suggest you don't use any other skincare products over your face after doing this at-home facial. If you are using any of these ingredients on your face for the first time, make sure you do a patch test on your hand and then apply it to your face to prevent any skin issues.
