No matter what time of year it is, coconut — in all its forms — is everywhere. Loaded with antioxidants, the nourishing wunderfruit has made its way into all manner of foods (though perhaps less as of late), wellness rituals (Gwyneth Paltrow famously swishes its extracted oil around her mouth for whiter, brighter teeth) and beauty products, from bath soaks to blushes.
But something about the sun and humidity of summer makes us crave all things coconut even more. The frozen beverages that first brought the tropical fruit to fame, yes, but also coconutty moisturizers, masks and makeup. Maybe it’s an olfactory thing — when it’s hot and the smell of coconut is wafting off our skin and hair, it’s easy to shut our eyes and imagine we’re on a tropical beach.
In any case, why not indulge? (It’s a fact that coconut oil makes your hair and skin look great and that coconut water and butter hydrate.) Above, we’ve compiled a list of 10 coconut-infused products that make us feel cheery and ready for summer, from a dual hair-face sunscreen that takes the guilt out of laying out by the pool to a fun, peachy highlighter that looks especially great with a tan.
