4 Tips to Using Shea Butter for Your Natural Skin Care and Hair Care Routine
There are sooooo many ways that shea butter is beneficial for both skincare and hair. Like, too many benefits to list in one post. I mean, it’s awesome butter that acts as a powerful moisturizer for both skin and hair. After using it and seeing how well it works, who doesn’t want to strut? Even just a little bit.
It might actually be the most popular butter out there…Hmmmm…
I like me some shea butter, but I’m not sure it’s may favorite. More on that in a future post.
But here a just a few quick facts about the benefits of using shea butter in your skincare routine.
And by quick, I mean three.
1. It’s packed with vitamins A, C and E, which help protect skin from damage from the sun and the environment. You know those free radicals everyone is always talking about. Those guys. Shea butter keeps them from doing what they do, which helps limit damage to your skin when you’re outdoors.
2. It helps promote collagen production in your skin, which leads to younger-looking and healthier skin. Because who over 21 doesn’t want to look younger?
3. It helps treat and prevent stretch marks and scars.
4. Always add a bit of vitamin e oil or other antioxidant to prolong the useful life of your butter. Natural butters and oils can go rancid, so the vitamin e adds an extra layer of protection so that you can use your handmade product for longer.
If you’re not DIYer, that’s cool. Check out my body butters in a ton fragrances for every mood and taste. There’s no reason why you can have great skin, be healthy, and smell great all at the same time. I mean, who doesn’t want to flaunt to that?
