Coconut Water is the juice from a young green coconut, and contains a plethora of vitamins and minerals which can heal, tone and moisturise the skin. A study in 2009 by the Sabinsa Corporation showed that coconut water was effective in supporting hydration and preserving skin elasticity. By doing so, coconut water helps with minimising skin roughness and improving skin tone, resulting in smooth and even tone and texture. One of the main components of coconut water is a cytokinin called Kinetin. Kinetin promotes cell renewal, working on damaged skin and preventing further ageing. Additionally, the kinetin in coconut water is a natural and effective toner to even out skin tone, reduce redness and hydrate tired and dry skin.
Witch Hazel has been used for centuries as a natural toner and is consistently used in beauty products due to its skin soothing properties. The plant, native to North America and parts of Asia embodies powerful antioxidant and astringent benefits, known to prevent signs of aging, speed healing and stop cellular damage that can lead to skin cancer. Moreover, the antibacterial properties of witch hazel fight minor infections whilst the tannins help to remove excess oils – hence why it’s considered one of the best natural acne and spot treatments available.
Ancient Egyptians called Aloe Vera “the plant of immortality”, and with good reason. Aloe contains multiple antioxidants (including vitamin C, E and beta carotene) to improve skins firmness and remain hydrated. Aloe’s most famous use however would be its infamous moisturising and soothing properties, as it builds an additional layer of cells that act as a protectant whilst skin heals quicker. Less known about aloe is its ability to lessen the visibility of stretch marks, as its moisturises and heals the damaged skin.
