Coconut oil gets praised time and time again, let’s not forget about its equally amazing sibling: coconut milk. Besides being a tasty addition to recipes, coconut milk has ways in which it can benefit our beauty too. Its high fat content, proteins and vitamin E work great at nourishing the skin and hair.
Here are 5 ways to get glowing skin with coconut milk:
Coconut Milk Moisturizer
Struggling with dry skin? Mix equal portions of fresh coconut milk and honey. Apply this over your face and neck and let it sit there for 10-20 minutes. Later, wash off with clean cold water and pat dry. No more stretchy feeling and no more dry patches.
Coconut Milk Facial Cleanser
Mix 1/2 parts of coconut milk with 1 part of olive oil and use it as your regular makeup remover. You will feel that your skin has become more clean and softer than ever before.
Coconut Milk Skin Brightening Mask
Add coconut milk to a teaspoon of sandalwood powder and mix it into a paste. Put in a few saffron strands and 2 drops of honey to this mixture and use this as your skin brightening face pack. This will work its magic and result in bright and beautiful skin.
Coconut Milk Sun Burn Spray
Add 1/2 parts of rose water to one part of coconut milk, fill this up in a clean spray bottle and refrigerate. Spray it on your face, and relax for 30 minutes to see instant results. Plain coconut milk is just as effective in treating sun damaged skin. All you need to do is apply a thin layer of cool coconut milk to the sunburnt area. The fats and oil in this milk will help reduce redness and restore moisture.
Coconut Milk Face Scrub
All you need to do is combine 2 cups white clay, 1 cup finely ground oats, 1/4 cup finely ground almonds, 1/8 cup finely ground lavender, and 1/8 cup finely ground roses. Add coconut milk to make a paste, then use the mixture as a gentle face scrub.
