How it benefits your skin hair and body

    Coconut water has a variety of healthy properties. It’s full of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin C, enzymes, amino acids and minerals like magnesium and potassium. Since it’s also high in natural electrolytes, coconut water is a great way to hydrate.


    Coconut water holds a healthy amount of cytokinins, which are plant hormones known to have anti-aging and anti-cancer effects. These hormones, along with other vitamins, significantly slow down the rate of skin aging. This allows your skin to work its magic and properly restore itself from the usual wear and tear of daily life. 

    Additionally, the natural liquid contains vitamin C, which aids in protecting your skin against the sun and environmental hazards. The sun’s ultraviolet rays ages the skin by reducing its elasticity and causing uneven pigmentation and wrinkles. Vitamin C helps to slow these destructive effects, allowing your skin to maintain a more youthful look. So feel free to apply some coconut water to your face before going out for the day.


    If your skin is dehydrated, the amino acids and electrolytes in coconut water can help hydrate it by drawing water into your cells. It also helps balance your skin's pH, which is important to skin health. 

    If there is one skincare rule that any human being should live by, it is to stay hydrated. Coconut water has a ton of electrolytes, such as sodium, magnesium, calcium, and potassium, which means that it is good at hydration. It possesses very similar hydrating properties to that of water, only one of the greatest hydrating substances ever. It can hydrate the skin without adding excess oil, perfect for those who have oily skin or dehydrated skin.


    Coconut water has anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antibacterial properties. These features work together to reduce incidences of acne, especially since coconut water can also lower the amount of excess oils on your skin.

    After clearing your pores of all that gunk, the water moisturizes your pores, effectively preventing bacteria from clogging them once again. Its many nutrients and minerals penetrate deep into the skin, nourishing it from the inside out. The soothing quality of this type of water also reduces redness and blemishes, decreasing the effects and pain of acne.

    How to incorporate coconut water into your daily routine

    1. Drink it straight up

    If regular water feels too dull and you have a hard time hitting your daily hydration goal, consider switching things up with coconut water. Coconut water has a delicious, almost sweet flavor. In other words, it makes hydration a bit more fun (and taste a bit better, too).

    2. Add it to your smoothies

    Are you tired of adding almond milk to your morning smoothies or acai bowls?  We recommend coconut water a try for a boost of flavor and nutrients. It also makes a good swap for plant-based milks in coconut chia seed pudding.

    3. Make popsicles

    When the temperature starts to spike during the summer months, cool off with some coconut water popsicles. Blend coconut water and fresh fruit and freeze  to make natural and nutritious popsicles.

    4. Turn it into ice cubes

    If you're feeling fancy, we suggests swapping your regular ice cubes and making your own out of coconut water. Then pop them into your favorite cocktail for a refreshing twist. 

    5. Mix it into your salad dressing

    Yes, you can add coconut water to jazz up your salads, too. Mix it with oil and spices to create a tropical-flavored salad dressing.
