Coconut milk has so many features that can help our hair and skin. In some earlier posts I had mentioned some benefits of coconut milk on body and hair. Here today I am giving raw coconut milk benefit on body. Especially this is so beneficial for children between 5 to 15 ages. Elders also can be benefited with this for sure. For those who have rashes on body or white patches or itchy skin all can be benefited from applying raw coconut milk on body. This can be used to avoid dry skin all over the body. The coconut milk is also a nourishment to skin.

How to prepare coconut milk
Someone asked me is coconut milk the water inside a coconut!!!Actually it confuses for those who are not familiar with coconut. Inside the coconut we get sweet coconut water. The inner crux white portion is the actual coconut used for making curry. By crushing and squeezing the inner white portion we get coconut milk. For this, grate the inner portion and put it in a mixer/grinder and work for few minutes. Then take out and squeeze the milk out. Now the coconut milk powder is available. I do not know how far it is genuine. So using this coconut milk we can do a good body massage.

Body massage with coconut milk
Apply the coconut milk all over body and face. Do a simple massage on the skin. This can help the milk to penetrate the skin. While applying we may feel itchy. Nothing to worry. Apply lavishly on full body. Continue rubbing on the skin while applying. Wait for half an hour.

If we do this body massage with coconut milk to children that will help their skin to become more smooth. It will avoid the formation skin patches or discoloration.
