Shea Butter: Mmm Mmm Good For Your Skin

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:

Body Time Otuke All-Natural Moisturizer, $28.50 for 1.6 oz.

Jergens Shea Butter Cream, $6.99 for 7.5 oz.

A few more, so

L'Occitane 24 Hours Ultra Rich Face Cream, $34 for 1.7 oz.

Frederic Fekkai Moisturizing Shampoo with Shea Butter, $30 for 9.5 oz.

Curel Natural Healing Moisturizing Lotion, Honey, Vanilla & Shea Butter Extracts, $7.49 for 13 oz.

Or you can go the health-food store and get 100% shea butter... much better.

I only use the L'Occitane creams. Both the face and body creams are amazing, and my skin is so dry with the wind right now that nothing else can bring the smoothness back! I remember someone from the shop telling me they were the only brand to have such a concentration in shea butter in their products.
