For your skin 1
Cupuaçu is packed with vitamins C and A, fatty acids and phytosterols that deeply hydrate skin as well and work to lock in moisture, leaving your body silky smooth and supple. Try Burt’s Bees Richly Replenishing Cocoa & Cupuaçu Butter Body Lotion ($8).
For bathing 2
This super fruit helps bind moisture to the skin. Try a highly moisturizing soap, like John Masters Organics Lavender Rose Geranium & Ylang Ylang Soap ($8), which also contains extract of the wonder fruit, to deeply hydrate skin as you cleanse.
For anti-aging 3
In Brazil women use cupuaçu extract or butter as an anti-aging beauty remedy. That’s because this super fruit is filled with natural antioxidants that work to nourish, repair and regenerate skin cells. It also helps protect skin from free radicals, like environmental stresses and harmful UV rays. Try Organic Cupuacu Day Moisturizer by Mercola ($40).
For hairstyling 5
While most gels leave hair dry and stiff, LUSH The Big Tease ($20) does exactly the opposite. It’s filled with cupuaçu butter that helps style your hair while still keeping it moisturized and soft.
For your lips 6
The moisturizing properties found in cupuaçu are great for smoothing dry, chapped lips. The JOUR Hydrating lipstick ($22) includes cupuaçu to help treat your pout while delivering amazing long-lasting color.
