Do you know that the Hawaiians refer to coconut water as noelani, which means 'dews from the heavens'... and indeed, as you learn more about the benefits of coconut water, you will truly understand why they say so! The coconut has many religious aspects to it, especially in India. Sri Sathya Sai Baba, also quoted that "There is sweet water inside a tender coconut. Who poured the water inside the coconut? Was it the work of any man? No. Only the Divine can do such a thing." You would be surprised to know that in India, whenever a new endeavor takes place, a coconut is smashed to the ground so that its water leaks out. This is considered as a sign of success. Anyway, enough about the religious aspect. Coconut is a pool of natural blessings in itself. Not only its water, the oil, the milk, and even the meat of coconut is useful for various purposes. However, in this article we shall focus on the benefits of coconut water for your skin. This BeautiSecrets article will tell you as to how you can rejuvenate your skin just using this naturally gifted solution which consists of the 'miracles of nature'.

Benefits of Coconut Water for Skin

They say beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder... however, when it comes to 'beholding' someone, your outer body is the one that helps form an opinion about you! Take your skin for example. A person with fresh, glowing, and flawless skin will always seem more healthy and beautiful than a person who is dealing with various skin issues. As a matter of fact, your face can also speak a lot about your inner health. For example, a pale and dull face may indicate low hemoglobin, or a dry skin may indicate dehydration! There are many skin issues like acne, pimples, dry skin, dark spots, that can lower your self-confidence in terms of appearance and looks. If you are tired of trying out those expensive cosmetics and medicines but still can't find a satisfactory solution to your skin problems, then relax and just go through the benefits of coconut water mentioned below.

Skin Hydration
Tired of the dull and dry skin? Looking for some natural glow and shine on your skin? If the answer to these questions is a definite yes, then all you need to do is apply some tender coconut water directly on your face. The coconut water has natural properties to hydrate your skin and give you the natural glow and smoothness that you always wanted. So stop spending on all those chemical based cosmetics and let nature take care of it all!

Boosts Oxygen Circulation
Do you know that half of the skin problems that you suffer from are because of the impurities that are deposited in your skin cells? This happens due to poor circulation of oxygen in the body. Each and every cell in the body needs an adequate amount of oxygen, which is possible only through proper blood circulation in the body as it is the blood that carries oxygen throughout the body. Coconut water is very effective in boosting proper circulation in the body, thereby allowing your skin to breathe a lot of healthy oxygen which in turn promotes a healthy and flawless skin.

Anti-aging Properties
Have you ever been to places where the main ingredient in food and drinks is coconut and coconut only? Well, if you ever get a chance to visit the Southern region of India, then you will find that these people consider coconut to be the ultimate source of health. I remember I once visited a small village in Kerala, South India, and met this lady who seemed to be around 35 years old. I was surprised to find out that she was actually 55 or more, and was a grandma of 3! This was the case with all the population, everyone seemed way younger than their real age. Could it be because of coconut water? Well, yes! Coconut water contains cytokinins, which is known for regulating the aging process of a person. It keeps your skin fresh, healthy, and prevents the sagging.

Natural Scar Eraser
I am sure most of us have this one scar on our body that we desperately want to get rid of! I mean, I have a horrible burn mark on my calf which makes me conscious when it comes to wearing shorts and skirts. But then, when I started applying coconut water on the mark I was surprised to see that within a month it faded away to a great extent! All you need to do is wash the scars, or acne marks too for that matter with coconut water at least three to four times daily. Also, do not wipe the excess water, let it dry naturally. Try this simple method and see guaranteed results!

Bye-Bye Sun Tan
I am a piscean who loves water. In fact, I can swim and spend an entire sunny day in the pool with my lime water. However, when I think of getting rid of the horrible sun tan afterward, I prefer skipping the plan at times. I mean one can always use a sunblock or sunscreen to prevent tanning, but then I remember reading that using sunblock can actually prevent the formation of vitamin D in the body, which by far is one of the most important vitamins that the body requires. So now, I know a better way to get rid of the sun tan, and allow vitamin D production as well! All you need to do is to apply a pack of coconut water mixed with Fuller's earth. Scrub it well and say bye-bye to sun tan!

Prevents Skin Infections
Another skin problem that most of us suffer from is skin infection, especially during the moist weathers like the monsoons. Coconut water has many healing, anti-viral, anti-microbial, and anti fungal properties which can keep the skin safe from infections. You can either apply it directly on skin, like a moisturizer, or you can mix it with your bath water. So now when the weather acts funny, just don't worry about skin infections.

No More Oily Skin
We have already discussed the benefits of coconut water for dry skin, but not only that, coconut water can actually prove to be a blessing for oily skin as well! It helps in washing away the excess oil of the skin and tones and cleanses the oily skin making it more even, smooth, and healthy. Now your skin won't shine because of the excess oil, it is the natural glow that will attract others towards you.

Coconut water is known as the 'fluid for life'. In Sanskrit, which is an ancient Indian language, the coconut tree is known as 'Kalpa Vriksha', which means 'tree which provides all that is necessary for a healthy living'. Coconut water is also known for its overall health oriented properties. It helps in controlling diabetes, obesity, and acid reflux diseases. Coconut water is known for increasing the metabolism of a person, which eventually helps in weight loss. I hope you will now try this immensely blessed gift of nature for all your skin problems and let go of all the products that you have been spending on in vain. Believe me, natural remedies are healthier and more effective in the long term as compared to chemical based products... and coconut water is definitely worth a try! So try it and stay naturally gorgeous!
