With all the strange, unpronounceable ingredients in skin creams these days, sometimes it’s good to just go back to the basics. There are plenty of perfectly natural products that can do wonders for the skin, with coconut milk being one of the best examples. Coconut milk has a host of benefits for the skin that you might not be aware of.
The great thing about Coconut milk is that it’s extremely high in fat, which makes it the perfect cleanser to use on the skin. Most of the dirt on our skin consists of various oils and other fat-soluble materials. This is the reason that you can’t shower with water alone and expect to truly get clean; oils only really want bind to other oils. Since Coconut milk is high in fat, it will easily pick up all these fat-soluble particles, leaving your skin clean and fresh, but not completely dried out afterwards.
There are also a number of other additional benefits Coconut milk and bring to your skin. Coconut is full of antioxidants, and is also thought to be possibly antibacterial in nature. Those with acne especially can benefit from these possible antibacterial properties. Those with dry skin greatly benefit from its moisturizing effects.
If you do decide to buy coconut milk for your skin, there are couple things you should know first. The first thing is that if you intend to buy an actual can of pure coconut milk, you should make sure that coconut milk is really the only ingredient. Make sure that it hasn’t been diluted with water or had preservatives added to it. If you buy a premade coconut milk beauty product, make sure that coconut milk is not only listed in the ingredients, but that it’s also somewhat high on the list. Ingredients are sorted by amount, so if coconut milk is near the bottom of the list, that means that the product hardly contains any real coconut milk.
Whether you go for a premade beauty product or real coconut milk, the key to seeing the benefits is consistency. Either cleanse with coconut milk every day or use the premade product as often as recommended. Eventually, the changes in your skin should become clear.
