It’s no secret that coconuts are basically magic.
Whether we’re cooking with coconut oil as a healthy oil alternative to butter or chugging coconut water to save ourselves from a hangover after a night of debauchery, the nutritional benefits of the coconut (which is not actually a nut, it’s technically a type of fleshy fruit called “drupe”) are endless. However, you can reap just as many benefits using it externally as you would from consuming it in foods. Their oil is naturally antibacterial and antifungal, and acts as an incredible moisturizer for your skin and hair.
We rounded up 18 beauty products that are made with these powerful fruits. Whether they’re made with coconut oil, coconut milk, or coconut water, prepare to give your body some serious nourishment. Oh, and did we mention how amazing they all smell? Click through the gallery below to check out our picks.
