Is Coconut Milk Good For Your Skin?

Coconut Milk For Skin

With its creamy texture and natural sweetness, coconut milk tastes like it should be bad for you. And yet, it's anything but! And did you realise that coconut milk isn't really "milk" at all? It is a liquid that is naturally present in mature coconuts and is kept inside the "meat" of the coconut. Coconut water is the liquid that comes out when a fresh coconut is cracked open. However, the coconut "meat" becomes a thicker coconut "milk" when it is blended and strained.

But why do we love it so much!? For the skin benefits of course. Check out some of the reasons that make our Coconut Bath Milk one of our favourite (and most popular) products that we make!

 

Rich in Fats (the good kind)

When applied topically to dry skin, coconut milk's high fat content can have an excellent moisturising impact and function as a sealant to lock in moisture and moisturise. The lipids in it smooth skin cells, make it simple to absorb, and keep your skin elastic.

Chock Full of Vitamins

This white tropical substance is dripping with Vitamins. It has vitamins C, E, B1, B3, and B5, which support healthy skin elasticity, hydrate hair follicles, and encourage hair development. Vitamin E is a crucial antioxidant that guards the skin from damage brought on by daily environmental stressors like pollution and sun exposure. Vitamin C can aid in reducing pigmentation and inflammation. Vitamin E offers additional advantages because it moisturises as well, assisting you in achieving that coveted dewy skin. Red, irritated, or dry skin can benefit from vitamins B1 and B5, while vitamin B2 can aid to even out skin tone.

 

It has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory qualities

Antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory effects are present in coconut milk. The medium-chain triglycerides in coconut milk contain these well-known acids, such as lauric acid, decanoic acid, caprylic acid, and caproic acid.

Because coconut milk has anti-inflammatory effects, applying it to sunburnt skin promotes quick healing. It aids by soothing the skin and easing discomfort, bruising, and redness.

It’s A Super Moisturiser

Its calming qualities make it an excellent moisturiser. To battle dryness and encourage healthy, bright skin, you can apply coconut milk to your skin for 20 to 30 minutes at a time. Or you can go the easier, and our favourite, option and soak in a bath of it.

 

Treats Skin Ailments

When applied gently, coconut milk has a great hydrating impact on dry skin disorders like psoriasis, eczema, and dermatitis. Natural fatty acids included in coconut milk aid in the treatment of dry, irritated skin and the eradication of harmful microorganisms.

It’s an Amazing Cleanser

Like coconut oil, coconut milk functions as a powerful cleanser for getting rid of dirt and waste from your pores while also hydrating your skin.

With the first Splendour in the Grass since 2019 coming up next weekend, I’ve spent the past couple of weeks putting together camping gear, outfits and now everything else. I’ve been camping at music festivals for the last 15 years or so and I’ve learnt a lot about what I do and don’t need to pack. I pride myself on having everything I or anyone else needs to make sure that the only thing you need to be worried about is if you can get from one stage to the next without missing your favourite performer.
