Shea butter is rich in Vitamins

This powerful butter is a great lotion known for its ability to rejuvenate the skin due to its high content of vitamins.  In particular, is rich in vitamins A, E and F.  Usually used to maintain a glowing skin that is well-nourished, it can actually help fight acne.


What exactly is Shea butter?

It is a fatty substance that comes from the nut of the Shea tree.  It is native to the African Savannahs. For centuries it has been a popular skin care ingredient in Africa.  Now it’s part of many cosmetic products.


Why Shea butter can help combat Acne ?

Well, as mentioned previously, its vitamin content is wonderful.  What this does is hydrate the skin, boosts collagen production, and also assists with the prevention of premature aging.

Also this nutrient butter contains vegetable fats that help improve cell regeneration, and the cinnamic acid helps your skin from the damaging rays of the sun. Shea butter helps to moisturize and heal, and has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, which in turn help with fighting the problem that causes acne; bacterial growth and inflammation on your skin.

With regular use, this special butter improve the elasticity of your skin.  It even can help improve the wrinkles and fine lines around your eyes.  Shea butter also helps heal stretch marks, rashes, wounds and scars.  Many of the wounds and scars are caused by acne.  This product also takes away the appearance of acne blemishes and treats skin conditions such as eczema.


Additional Tips

The most effective way to use Shea butter is to combine your treatment with a salicylic acid cleanser first.  This will eliminate the clogged pores and allow the Shea butter to get in and work its magic.

After you’ve washed your face, apply some Shea butter by using a small sponge applicator.  Avoid using your fingers, since the bacteria from your hands will move back on the skin.  Leave the applied Shea butter on your skin for about 8 hours, so it’s best to do this treatment overnight.  Wash it off with a cleanser in the morning.

Repeat this treatment about two to three times per week.  Salicylic acid is probably one of the best types of acne washes you can use for your skin, as it kills off many facial bacteria and gets deep into the skin.

Another effective way to do this is to enrich the Shea butter with some essential oils.  If you add about 15 drops of lavender oil, and approximately 10 drops of lemongrass oil, to about 2 oz. of Shea butter, mix it together and apply to your skin as needed.  Both lavender and lemongrass oil are known to help combat many skin conditions.  And the smell will be refreshing as well.
