If you’re into skincare you know about the incredible benefits of natural ingredients like coconut oil, turmeric, and honey, but have you heard about Shea Butter?
Chances are it’s an ingredient in a ton of your beauty products, but it’s shea butter’s raw form that works wonders for your skin. Just some of its magical powers include improving wrinkles and acne, reducing cellulite (sign us up right now!), preventing stretch marks during pregnancy, treating burns, healing wounds, intense moisturization, and improving eczema…we’ll take ten jars please!
So, that’s why we decided we just had to use it in our Huda Beauty 3D Highlighter Palette. The Shea butter based revolutionary Melted Strobe formula is not only amazing for your skin, but also creates a super smooth canvas for flawless application and the perfect base for building layers of highlight. Check it out!
This nutty, scented butter is literally a super food for your skin; it’s rich in vitamins A and E, which keeps skin supple, nourished, and prevents premature aging. It’s also full of essential fatty acids that aid in the natural production of collagen, reducing wrinkles and improving tissue cell regeneration. The presence of vitamin F restores skin’s elasticity, maintains even skin tone, and softens it. And as if we weren’t satisfied enough, it contains cinnamic acid which offers mild SPF protection, aids in reducing inflammation, and works amazingly for treating sunburn. It’s also a super intense moisturizer, which is ideal for smoothing and softening your hands, feet, cuticles and lips.
Naturally extracted from the nut of the Shea tree found in West Africa, it has provided buttery goodness for skin and hair for thousands of years. Shea butter’s incredible healing powers can only be harnessed in its rawest form, which means you need to buy Grade A, unrefined, pure, organic shea butter. This ensures all its vitamins and nutrients are still intact, uncompromised by a refining process or broken down by added ingredients. So be careful to buy your shea butter from a certified vendor!
Probably one of our favorite things about shea butter is there’s no need for any messy concocting, like mixing it into a mask or having to wash it off. The mixture is usually a little hard but easily softens in your hands into a rich moisturizer. We love it for being the ultimate all-in-one skin remedy!
