For a good clear skin, here are steps to a Shea b*tter facial
What you will need:
1. Natural, raw (unprocessed) Shea b*tter
2. Facial scrub (Preferably one with lots of scrubbing beads)
3. Warm water
4. Facial mask (Preferably a natural mask of Honey/Lime/Avocado/Egg white)
STEP 1. Apply a generous quantity of Shea b*tter on your face. The idea is to let it sit on your face, not get absorbed, so you’d need a much larger quantity than the regular application. Massage with your fingers in circular motions, applying pressure in problem areas of your face (spots, blemishes, scars). Let this sit on your face for 5minutes. (You could keep it on for as long as 20minutes if you have the time)
STEP 2. Now over the Shea b*tter, apply a good quantity of your facial scrub and scrub your face in easy circular motions. If you do not have a facial scrub with lots of beads, Sugar would be a good replacement here. Just take a level spoon of sugar and apply over the Shea b*tter on your face and scrub.
STEP 3. Do not wash off immediately. Allow to sit for another 2minutes just so the Shea b*tter and Scrub mixture can penetrate your already open pores.
STEP 4. Now wash off with warm water. This would help open up your pores even more.
STEP 5. This is the perfect time to have your Face Mask work its magic. At this point you have had a good does of vitamin E and moisture from the Shea b*tter and your pores are ready to accept whatever is given to it. If you do not have a facial mask, the natural route would be best!
Apply honey, or lime, or egg white, or avocado to your face and leave on for 5 minutes. These are all natural and work effectively on your skin. For best results, wash off mask with warm water.
Now tell me your skin doesn’t feel brand new?
If you have done this right, you’d notice an instant difference in how your skin feels.
NOTE: Be careful not to scrub your face too often. When you do what i call “over-scrubbing” you’d be doing more harm than good to your skin. Ideally you should scrub only once a week, too much of that and you’d be doing quite the opposite of what you intend and ripping your skin of nutrients that it needs to heal or stay vibrant.
The Shea b*tter facial can be done every two days for a start and then gradually reduce to twice a week.
