"Superfood" for the skin - shea butter
The 4 most popular benefits of shea butter for summer skin care 🌱
A magical summer continues to spoil us. While most of us enjoy longer, sunnier days, we don't like oily skin, sunburns, and strong UV lights. We've got Cleopatra's ancient beauty secret to solve all your summer woes. It is the only "super food" for the skin - shea butter!
Here are four ways you can benefit from using shea butter in your summer skin care routine:
☀️ Light UV protection (SPF-6)
Raw, unrefined shea butter is naturally rich in vitamins A, E and F. It offers low UV protection (it's SPF-6), so adding it to your daily skin care regimen can help prevent aging from overexposure to UV rays. Regular use of shea butter helps prevent skin peeling. If you suffer from sunburn, apply shea butter liberally to your skin to soothe and heal damaged skin quickly.
🌱 A natural, effective face and body moisturizer for all skin types
Shea butter provides the skin with antioxidants, essential fatty acids and nutrients needed for collagen production. Whether you suffer from acne, eczema, normal, dry or oily skin, shea butter doesn't discriminate, it has healing benefits for everyone. Shea butter reduces acne, gently soothes and richly moisturizes the skin, and keeps it soft and youthful all summer long.
🤍 Reduces Inflammation
The triterpenes in shea butter can accelerate the reduction of inflammation when massaged into painful joints and inflamed areas. What a relief for people suffering from arthritis and rheumatic pain. Apply shea butter both before and after a workout or strenuous activity to prevent and/or quickly relieve muscle soreness.
🦟 Treats insect bites
When you go to summer festivals and carnivals, apply shea butter on exposed body parts to ward off blood-sucking insects. It may not be as effective as chemical repellants, but it is definitely a safer option. Avoid severe itching and scratching, as this will spread the venom to the surrounding tissue. Fortunately, shea butter's anti-inflammatory properties reduce the itching and soreness associated with treating mosquito bites and bee stings.
Which shea butter to choose?
It is important to choose fresh Premium A grade unrefined, raw, unbleached shea butter. Nothing will be as effective as what is naturally produced from the heart of Africa.
