Shea butter in its natural form is amazing. Shea butter comes from the shea nut tree, the nuts that come from this tree can take 18-25 years to grow and in their native countries are seen to be a key to life for their many health and beauty benefits. Here is a short list of its wonderful benefits below:
- Eczema, psoriasis and acne
Eczema, psoriasis, and acne are all skin conditions that require specific treatments. The moisture and nourishing properties that shea butter offers are a great way to better manage these skin conditions. For best results, on a consistent basis, cleanse the skin and problem areas and while the skin is still damp apply a thin coating of shea butter. Rub the Shea Butter in gently and the dampness will allow it to set in and lock in that moisture.
- Cracked heels and cuticles
Some people struggle with dry feet and hands all year round but it is more noticeable during the Summer as that is sandal season and even more fresh manicures and pedicures. To combat dry and cracked toes and feet, at bedtime, after showering apply a thin coat of Shea Butter and gently massage the entire foot while damp. For those who can stand to sleep with socks, use the sock method which is just slipping your socks on so that by morning your feet will be soft and moisturized. For your cuticles, try keeping a small container of shea butter with you at all times so that you can moisturize your hands with it after every time you wash your hands, keeping your hands and cuticles nice and soft.
- Shaving Cuts & Bruises
Shea Butter is perfect for a moisturizing shave. Apply a generous layer of shea butter over the area you want to shave. The shea butter will double as it will protect the skin from the razor, and provide your skin with the needed moisture it requires after a fresh shave.
- Bug bites
Shea butter has natural anti-inflammatory properties that help relieve the skin from bug bites. It gets rid of the swelling as well as subsides the itch.
- Dermatitis and dry scalp
Shea butter is effective in soothing a dry, itchy scalp or dandruff. It is rich in vitamins A and E which soothes dryness, prevents breakage, and absorbs into skin without clogging pores. Be sure to slather onto the hair but rather apply it to the scalp and gently massage into the hair. This can be done as a hair treatment on a biweekly basis to support conditioning.
- Stretch Marks
Shea butter can assist in fading old stretch marks, reduce the redness of new stretch marks, provide added UV protection and strengthen the damaged skin.
- Sensitive Skin
Shea Butter is known to be safe and effective on all skin types, although some people are allergic to nuts, studies have shown that Shea Butter does not contain the proteins that trigger these allergies which is why it is preferred by many.
- Blemishes and scars
Shea butter is a natural, organic substance that's rich in vitamin A which is why it is excellent for removing scars from breakouts skin conditions, or other types of skin injuries like keloids because it won't clog pores nor does it contain any chemical irritants.
- Before and Post surgery
Shea Butter has a very high concentration of vitamins A and E in it so shea butter helps to promote collagen production, which increases cell turnover. This allows the body to heal faster and repair damaged tissue at a much faster rate than normal.Scars heal faster and become much less visible.
