Coconut water is the clear liquid that - surprise surprise - comes from coconuts! In addition to coconut water being so deliciously good, and super refreshing especially on a hot summer day, this liquid also contains numerous health and beauty benefits that I am obsessed with!
I asked for some fresh coconut water this week and I have been obsessing over it ever since I received it :) I love fresh Omani coconut water from coconut trees from south of Oman. It tastes heavenly, and after I read about the beauty & health benefits that it promises I became even more obsessed!
So why is coconut water good for you?
Coconut water in one coconut often has the same amount of potassium available in FOUR bananas! It is also super hydrating and makes a perfect moisturizer for your skin. Drinking coconut water will keep your body hydrated, while applying coconut cream on your skin will maintain the moisture on your skin, giving it a healthy glow.
Coconut water is also low in calories, and is seen as a healthier alternative for energy drinks! It is very refreshing, light in weight, and contains easily digestive carbohydrates.
Additionally, drinking coconut water is great for a healthy and glowing skin, and its mere application directly onto the skin hydrates and cleanses it significantly. It also promises to moisturize and keep the pimples away! As for your hair, it has been known for a very long time that coconuts, coconut oil and water have a very positive impact on the hair. This is because massaging coconut water onto the scalp and hair prevents frizz and dryness, in addition to it being anti bacterial making it ideal for those suffering with itchy scalp.
There are so many benefits of coconut water! including hair loss remedies, removing tan spots and sun burn scarring, and prevention of blackheads and acne.
