Refresh Your Skin With Shea Butter

Did you know that there is an all-natural substance that you can put on your face that will not only fight acne; it will actually help prevent it?  It’s true.  This substance can be found in almost any supermarket, drugstore and health food store.  It’s even cheap and inexpensive too.   The substance is called shea butter and once you use it once, you will wonder how you even survived without using it.  Shea butter can dramatically reverse any damage to your skin.

Shea butter is made from the nut of the shea tree.  That nut is ground down to create shea butter.  Most of the world’s shea butter is used in the process of making chocolate but there is a small portion of it that is used exclusively for cosmetic purposes. Shea butter has been used in Africa for cosmetic purposes for centuries but only in recent years has the rest of the world found out about it.  Shea butter contains a great amount of Vitamin A and Vitamin A is a great nutrient for the skin and hair.  In fact, many of the new shampoos and conditioners on the market have shea butter as a key ingredient.

Shea butter is one of the best things that you can use to improve the health of your skin.  Along with Vitamin A, shea butter has numerous fatty acids that will quickly repair damaged skin.   People that have suffered from skin conditions like acne, eczema, dry skin, insect bites and frostbite report that they have seen a miraculous change in the texture and the appearance of their skin after using shea butter.

If you want to add shea butter to your skin care routine, it is very simple to do so.  First, you need a container of shea butter.  Be sure to get all natural shea butter and not shea butter with any additives.  The best shea butter will say that it is from West or Central Africa.  If the container says that it is from somewhere else, don’t buy it.  The best shea butter will be slightly expensive but it will still cost less than most of the skin care products that you have in your home right now.    Once you get your shea butter, just apply it to your face like you would do with any other cream or lotion.  It will gently moisturize your skin and bring back its original color while it eliminates acne, blemishes and any other skin irritations.

Shea butter is probably one of the best substances that you can use to achieve healthy skin. If you aren’t currently using it, you need to start using it right now.
