Although there's beauty in your blackness, your skin is sensitive and needs protection from the sun just like everyone else.

It will bring comfort and beauty back to your skin.

Shea butter for black skin care? Scrubbing Butters? For a totally decadent experience, give yourself a shea butter body scrub, before soaking in a warm tub.
A great product for black skin care, shea butter is a fantastic moisturizer all by itself, but, when Dead Sea salt, sugar or other mild abrasives are whipped in for their exfoliating properties, it rises to an entirely new level of luxury. Such a salt scrub treatment can cost $70.00 or more at a spa but you can achieve the same results in the privacy of your own bathroom and for a fraction of the price.
Body scrubs are a wonderful way to remove layers of dead skin, bringing a healthy glow to your body. However, shea butter scrubs stand head and shoulder above products made with inexpensive vegetable oils. Shea butter has healing properties as well as being easily absorbed into the skin, maintaining a moisture barrier without feeling the least bit greasy. When massaged into scars or stretch marks, shea butter will help minimize their appearance.
Sometimes called the African miracle, shea butter is a unique vegetable fat that is solid at room temperature and emulsifies easily with other oils, including essential and fragrance oils without separating in the container. Add salt, sugar or pulverized coffee, and shea butter is transformed into a shea butter scrub.
Frequently other beneficial oils are added to the base of shea butter. Oils like, almond, jojoba, avocado and fragrant essential oils only add to the luxurious experience of a shea butter scrub. However, shea butter should always be the first ingredient and make up the majority of the product.
To get the greatest benefit from shea butter scrub, plan ahead so you won't be disturbed. Take the phone off the hook and put a DO NOT DISTURB sign on your bathroom door. Then disrobe, stand or sit in your bath tub and begin scrubbing your body gently with shea butter scrub, paying special attention to any rough spots like knees, elbow and feet.
Start with the rough spots and gradually work your way around to the rest of your body. Use a circular motion with your hand and adding more shea butter scrub as needed.
Be especially gentle on your face but don't be afraid of scrubbing there too. After you have covered your entire body, fill the bath tub with warm water and slowly immerse yourself. The water will dissolve the salt or sugar in the shea butter scrub and the shea butter will finish melting. Soak in this wonderfully moisturizing tub until you feel the stress flow out of you.
Finish up with some regular shea butter or some jojoba oil to complete the treatment and make sure your new, shiny layer of skin is completely protected from the drying effects of wind and sun.
Give yourself a shea butter body scrub once a week and you will never suffer from rough, scaly patches on your elbows, knees or feet and your skin will glow with good health.
