Coconut cred

Coconut is emerging as the new skin-care wonder ingredient. Packed with vitamins and emollients, it’s super hydrating yet quick-absorbing, so it leaves your skin soft and glowing, not shiny or slick. High in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory fatty acids, it speeds healing and increases cell turnover: A recent study shows that coconut oil can even calm eczema. Better yet, it won’t irritate sensitive skin or clog pores; the lauric acid in coconut is actually thought to ward off breakouts. So it’s no wonder we fell for Joey New York, an entire line of luxurious, coconut water-based products, from rejuvenating serum to eye cream. (Available at beauty.com.) Another one we love: Dr. Jackson’s Coconut Melt, a cushy, organic balm that nourishes skin, lips, cuticles and hair and melts in on touch. (Available exclusively at Net-a-Porter.com.)
