OK ladies. It's winter time - time to moisturize! Here's one of my winter skin staples...
There is no doubt shea butter is good stuff. It has soothing, moisturizing and protecting effects. It displays a protecting role against UV rays - it is an asset against skin aging. It also aides in the healing of small wounds, skin cracks and crevices. Moreover, dry skin, dermatitis, dermatoses, eczema, sun burn, and burns are all helped by shea butter. Lastly, it has an anti-elastase characteristic which makes it a good active ingredient against stretch marks. Do you need any more convincing that shea butter is good stuff? Stock up on this miracle worker to prevent cold weather skin woes. Here are my faves:
