I have a confession to make, even though I consider myself the queen of shea butter moisturizers, I have a hard time getting the men in my house to moisturize daily. One look at their ashy feet drives me completely bonkers and I end up chasing them around the house with scoops of whipped butter.
If you you're like my boys and don't moisturize daily I am going to do my best not to judge you 👀.
Here's why you need to use a great shea butter based moisturizer daily
Applying a shea butter based moisturiser daily especially after a shower is the best ways to avoid dry itchy skin, cracked hands and cuticles, crusty feet and dull ashy legs.
Think of daily moisturizing as therapy for your skin. The more you moisturize the more your skin improves over time. Shea butter is a uniquely effective moisturizer that has been used for centuries by African women. It has unique anti-inflammatory properties that protect and repair the skin barrier. A strong healthy skin barrier looks smooth, hydrated and glows.
Additional Benefits of Moisturizing with Shea Butter
- Accelerates the healing of small wounds, burns and other skin inflammations.
- Soothes cradle cap, baby eczema and other infant skin problems
- Eases minor pain of arthritis and other joint pain
- Soothes sore muscles from exercise or arthritis
I think we can all agree that dry ashy skin does not look or feel attractive. So if you haven't been moisturizing daily, I hope I have given you enough reasons to start today 😘
