    Coconut milk body soak for winter

    Coconut milk body soak for winter

    This season, get rid of dry skin by pampering yourself to a wonder regime, using coconut milk

    With the cold in the air, it's simply a good idea to warm up in a tub but one that can also be beneficial to the skin, if you add the right ingredients to your bath. And coconut milk that is made out of the inner white matter of the fruit works well in this regard. It can make the skin smooth and supple and add to its complexion. The milk content is also useful for treating itchy skin that appears in winter. Read on to know more...

    How it works:
    Coconut milk softens and moisturises the skin. Says skin expert Dr Jaishree Sharad, "There are definite reasons to try it in your beauty regimen. It's good for people with dry, itchy skin. What happens is, coconut milk penetrates till the deepest level of the skin and can lock in the moisture there, which is its biggest advantage. You can put it on in the morning and the skin stays fresh till the evening. It's a great cleanser too. Also, while other soaks or scrubs made of ingredients like olive oil may lead to whiteheads and block pores, coconut milk does not block skin pores. It's a good idea to use it in your bath soak, moisturiser, lip and facial care routines."

    Make it yourself:

    Coconut milk mask
    Ingredients:
    Yoghurt - 1 cup

    Almonds, crushed - 1 tbsp
    Coconut milk (obtained from grounding the crux and extracting the milk from it) - cup

    Method:
    Mix the above and apply to the face for 8 - 10 minutes. Rinse off with warm water.

    Coconut milk body soak
    Ingredients:
    Coconut milk - 2 cups
    Honey - 2 tbsp

    Method:
    Add this to a tub. Soak in it for 10 minutes. Wash off with warm water, no need to add any soap.

    Re: Coconut milk body soak for winter

    Very nice post! I remember my grandma rubbing me with coconut milk on a weekly basis when I was much younger.. Nowadays I use generic body lotions and such to take care of my skin but I recently started using parachute advansed body lotion which has worked really well for me and my skin. It has made my skin softer and more smoother too and I use it quite a bit sine its so easy to carry around. Will try the recipes you suggested when I have a long weekend off!
