Coconut

For a natural ingredient with serious skin and hair benefits, look no further.

Rich in fatty acids, coconut hydrates and reduces redness for smooth, even-toned skin. A drop of it in a hair product can strengthen your strands, too. And then there’s the beachy scent. It’s the fastest way to breezy, happy vibes—even if you’re a thousand miles from the tropics.
