Try moisturising body butter to soothe dry skin
The cold, wet and windy weather this week may have taken its toll on your skin at around the same time you were packing away or using up the last of your winter beauty essentials, leaving you with dry, cracked skin on your hands and face.
If this is the case, try using a body butter to restore moisture and smoothness to your scaly skin, soothing painful broken or sore patches at the same time.
Shea butter is naturally rich in vitamins E, A and F - all of which are good for skin. Choose an unrefined product over other types, as these have come straight from the natural source without undergoing any artificial processes.
Vitamins A and E in particular balance out dry skin and help keep the complexion clear and healthy, while vitamin F protects the cells by providing three essentially fatty acids vital for revitalising and soothing your complexion.
Shea butter is used around the world to treat a number of skin complaints, such as acne, burns, discolouration and dark spots and eczema.
It is also said to be helpful in fading scars and stretch marks, so if a friend of yours is feeling a bit wobbly about the prospect of showcasing her post-pregnancy stretch marks, give her natural beauty products that will help her feel better about her body.
Shea butter can also be used as a dry hair treatment because it moisturises and protects the scalp and locks, especially on tresses that have been over-processed or are damaged due to over-use of heated equipment like straighteners and hairdryers.
Unlike other beauty products, shea butter does not clog pores or block the hair shaft, nor does it leave a greasy residue, so you can slick some on your dry bits in the knowledge that you won’t be leaving behind a sticky trail.

Since the cold press presses the produce to extract the oil, no heat is involved. ... You get 100% of the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and nutrients when you apply cold pressed oil on your face.

- The Rosehip Oil Diaries- Entry 1Hello Asma, Thank you for your message. Being a carrier oil, Pomegranate oil is safe to apply on the skin without dilution. However, because of its richness it is often used at dilutions of approximately 5-15% in skincare formulations. Combining Rosehip oil and pomegranate oil will give you a deeply nourishing blend of particularly antioxidant- and vitamin rich oils. It may also support scars, wrinkles and premature ageing. Hope this helps.
