The night are get chillier and it’s officially dark at 4pm, which can only mean one thing: winter is upon us. Don’t get us wrong, who doesn’t love wearing cosy knitwear and chunky boots whilst sipping a frothy hot chocolate by the fireplace? Or shopping for gifts under the twinkling lights? Or even, dare I say it, snow? Yes, there are plenty of comforts that winter brings, however as the temperature drastically drops so does the moisture in our skin, which can leave it feeling very dry and irritated. So, what better time to incorporate a bit of shea butter in our good old skincare routine.

Shea butter seems like a new phenomenon in the beauty world; however, it has been a part of many women’s beauty regimen back in Africa for years. Our grandmothers swore by it as it has a plethora of benefits. So, why are so many beauty enthusiasts and celebrities such as Kendall Jenner obsessed with this beauty staple now? Shea butter comes from the nut of the African shea tree and can be mostly found in West Africa. It has been used as a cosmetic ingredient for centuries, with different types of shea butter from white or ivory coloured and it works wonders for hair too.  Whether whipped or in its natural raw form the high concentrations of fatty acids infused with vitamins can help to soften the skin and lock in the moisture you may be craving this winter. With so many other nourishing properties such as easing skin inflammation and healing we can reassure you it is guaranteed to keep the winter blues away, so what’s not to love about shea butter.
