Shea butter is packed with essential nutrients that can enhance your natural complexion and help you glow from the inside out. My favourite butter!
Shea butter has anti-aging effects on the skin because it stimulates the production of collagen, “protein of youth” in the skin. Shea butter contains plant antioxidant vitamins A, E and F and prevent skin damage from UV radiation. It penetrates the skin easily without clogging pores. You can use it in many different ways:
1. blemishes – wrinkles
3. insect bites
4. muscle fatigue, aches,tensions
5. before-after hard exercise
8. skin damage from the heat.
How to use shea butter on your face
The easiest way to use shea butter for your face is to purchase a cream that includes shea butter from a health food store, pharmacy, or online retailer. Shea butter can be applied directly to your face before you go to sleep. Applying cream with shea butter as part of your skincare routine in the morning might take some getting used to, as the fatty acids and oils in shea butter may make applying makeup on top of it difficult.
You can also make a facial mask using shea butter and several other ingredients. Wash your face first with a cream cleanser or warm water. Don’t expose your face to steam prior to use, as this will open your pores and make the shea butter more likely to get trapped in your skin and cause a breakout.
To make your own mask, mix together:
1 tablespoon of raw honey
3 to 4 drops of grape seed oil
1 tablespoon of pure shea butter
Mix well and spread out over your face. Leave the mask on for 10 to 12 minutes before gently cleansing your face with warm water and a soft washcloth for best results.
We like to Mix it with lotion and Use it Specially After Shower or before Go to bed It Gives You Amazing And Fluffy Skin !! You can mix it together with (cacao butter, sweet almond oil, avocado oil, coconut oil) in equal amounts, it shall give your skin great results.. Try it you won’t regret.
Benefits of shea butter for your face
Anti-inflammatory and healing properties
Shea butter has been proven to have extensive anti-inflammatory properties. Redness and swelling on your face may be calmed by applying shea butter products. Shea butter’s fatty acid and vitamin K concentration also helps your body to heal faster when your skin barrier has been compromised.
Shea butter’s consistency and semisolid characteristics help your skin to absorb it when it melts at room temperature. The rich tree nut oils in shea butter can soak into your skin, creating a smooth and soft barrier that seals in moisture. This moisturizing effect can last several hours, unlike some other moisturizers that wear off after one hour or less.
Shea butter has high levels of oleic, linoleic, and stearic acids. These acids are an effective ingredient to combating oxidative stress, which is the effect the environmental toxins have on your skin cells. This helps your skin to have a healthy turnover of new cells, and also supports the structure and tightness of your skin. The vitamin E in shea butter also helps protect your skin from the UV rays of the sun, although you can’t skip sunscreen just because you use shea butter on your face.
Highly recommend for those, who like natural moisturizing product for hands, cuticles, and feet. It is also my life-saver helping me to avoid ingrown hairs after depilation (use right after)! It soft my skin well and absorb rapidly,I add it to my cream with essential oils.
Although it’s considered safe every skin type, many products containing shea butter have other ingredients mixed in.
If you experience any side effects that you suspect are connected to a shea butter product, discontinue use and see a doctor or other healthcare provider. They can help determine what’s causing your symptoms and advise you on any next steps.
Good Luck to you!
