10 Refreshing Coconut Products to Fix Your New Year's Eve Hangover

Jan 1 2015 - 1:00pm

We know what you may be thinking: why would I want a tropical ingredient like coconut water during the dark days of Winter? But these colder times provide the perfect opportunity to use the summery ingredient — especially if you're nursing a post-New Year's Eve hangover [1]. (Know how you like drinking coconut water to sooth your stomach? It works in the same way as a beauty remedy.)

We already know coconut oil is a rock star beauty goody on its own [2], but when it's incorporated into hair and skin products, it's equally beneficial — plus, it smells like a beach getaway! To help you get started, we've rounded up 10 hair and skin products that incorporate the island nut. Coconut water has antioxidant properties and electrolytes to moisturize, while coconut oil does everything from hydrating dry hair to freshening breath [3]. Don't blame us if these products look delicious enough to eat.

Makeup Primer

Sleep doesn't always happen after a long night of swilling Champagne. Thankfully this makeup primer will mask all that skin damage in the morning. It's infused with coconut water, electrolytes, and probiotics to hydrate, brighten, and smooth skin. Plus, it feels refreshing and cooling and will make your foundation wear longer.

Cream Eye Shadow

If you're too lazy to put together a whole eye shadow "lewk," stick to one rock-star product to get the job done. This creamy eye shadow contains coconut water to add moisture and argan oil pigments to help eyes look younger. Though it looks very saturated, the color glides on sheer and shiny. Of the six available hues, our favorite is Rio de Rose Gold (pictured), a shimmering pink gold.

CC Cream

Yes, even your CC cream can be infused with coconut water. This skin perfecter relies on coconut water since it's made of cytokinins, antiaging phytohormones that regulate cell division, increase the skin's elasticity, and prevent sagging. Bonus points: it also includes antioxidant-rich kelp and detoxifying ginseng.
