Is your skin in need for a little TLC? Struggling to find prods that your skin can drink up? As tempting as skipping moisturiser can be during the times when you want to launch from shower to quilted robe, you’ve got to remember that summer skin is made in winter, or however the saying goes.
If you’re on the hunt for something heavy-duty that will take the neglected skin on your bod from zero to hero, keep your eyes peeled for moisturisers that contain millennial pantry staple, coconut oil. Coconut oil is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, smells like cake AND has been proven to assist in the healing of really dry skin. What more could you possibly want?
Here are 7 coconut-based moisturisers that are swooping in to save your dry skin this winter:
We Are Feel Good Inc. Coco Milk
Slather your bod in the smell of summer with this luxe coconut milk from home-grown Aussie brand We Are Feel Good Inc. The milk is enriched with skin-loving ingredients like Vitamin E and Shea Butter for a non-greasy finish and will keep your skin hydrated all day long.
This lightweight, nourishing body cream is the perfect pick for dry, dehydrated winter skin. It’s formulated with both coconut oil and coconut milk, to deliver a steady stream of moisture and protection to your bod.
Fresh, foamy and infused with the signature Palmer’s coconut scent, this coconut oil-rich body wash is the ideal prerequisite to a tropical-scented moisturising milk, balm, lotion or creme. Hitting stores soon!
Frank Body Coconut Body Balm
Coconut-oil based goodness doesn’t come much better than this summer-scented balm from Frank Body. Infused with the brand’s signature arabica coffee seed oil to tone and firm, this luxe balm is rich in vitamin E, antioxidants and other moisturising ingreds like jojoba and coconut oil. Exfoliate with one of their infamous body scrubs and replenish with this coconutty balm.
Sumptuously rich and brimming with the vitamins and antioxidants that come with pure, organic extra virgin coconut oil, this heady body cream also contains a healthy dose of Lauric acid (which coconut naturally contains), leaving your dry and rough skin feeling smooth, nourished and silky soft.
Lightweight and luxuriously absorbent, this milk is the ideal antidote to dry skin. The convenient spray bottle means you have even less of an excuse not to use it, and the fresh coconut scent that hails all the way from Samoa, Polynesia makes this a must-have in your winter beauty arsenal.
Yup, the jar of coconut oil that so dutifully fries your kale for you each evening (with supervision, of course), cleans your teeth when you oil pull and is just a general kitchen MVP also really turns up to the occasion when used as a body moisturiser as well. Simply take a big scoop between your palms (and warm if it’s a bit on the solid side), apply liberally and watch yourself transform into a summer-ready, coconutty goddess.
