Shea butter and Strawberries
If you have sensitive and dry skin, you most definitely have to try this shea butter and strawberry mask. Make a puree out of about half a dozen strawberries. To remove the excess water, you can wrap them in a muslin cloth and let the excess drain out. Or you could simply use a sieve to remove the excess amount of water. Add two lumps of shea butter to the remains in the sieve and mix well. Apply this mask onto your face and massage in circular motions. After massaging for about three to five minutes, wash it off with lukewarm water. This natural mask is gentle and mild upon your skin and will not cause any irritation. It will hydrate your pores and nourish the upper dermis of your skin, providing your face with a fresh look.
Shea butter and Mint
A mask of shea butter and mint will treat all your acne related problems and remove any existing zits. Make a thick paste out of mint leaves and add some shea butter to it. Mix the ingredients well to form an even paste. Apply this paste onto the acne prone regions and the oily T-zone of your face and leave it to dry. You can then wash it off with some ice-cold water. The anti-bacterial and healing properties of mint help reduce acne by combating the acne-causing bacteria.
Shea butter and Orange
This Shea butter and orange mask works wonders to remove the oil and sebum from your skin’s pores. Peel an orange and make a puree out of the slices. You could try to peel the slices as well to get to the inner pulp. Then, add a few spoons of shea butter to this pulp and mix well in order to turn the ingredients into a thick paste. The citric concentration of orange helps to slow down the natural sebum production of your skin and eliminates all the unwanted particles trapped in your skin pores. Though shea butter itself is a bit oily, it keeps a check on the production of the natural oils needed by your skin. It even adds a certain natural glow to your face that will make you look youthful and lively.
