DIY Shea Butter Lotion Bar Recipe without Beeswax

When you have shea butter then you don’t need beeswax to make a lotion bar! Check out this easy DIY shea butter lotion bar recipe without beeswax!

A lotion bar is simply lotion in solid form. You don’t need to slather a liquid lotion on your body. Just grab a lotion bar and rub it on! The heat from your skin will warm up the part of the bar touching your skin, releasing oils that moisturize your skin.

If you’ve been making lotion bars with beeswax, I’m here to tell you that lotion bars can still stay solid even without the addition of beeswax. All you need are natural plant butters such as shea butter and cocoa butter and your lotion bar will stay firm and work well!

Essential oils have been added to this recipe for their scents, therapeutic properties and also moisturizing and antiseptic qualities. The three essential oils used: lavender, geranium and tea tree combined together have a very lovely scent. Lavender oil is moisturizing, geranium oil balances sebum and beautifies skin while tea tree oil has antiseptic properties to fight off germs.

Using Shea Butter for Keratosis Pilaris | Natural Remedy that Works!

Using shea butter for keratosis pilaris is a natural and effective remedy to manage those awful bumps!

You know those small red rash-like bumps that some people (or maybe you) have on their outer upper arms? That’s keratosis pilaris and it’s fairly common. It doesn’t only affect the upper arms but most people have it on this area.

Keratosis pilaris is not harmful but it sucks! It mars a flawless appearance and if you scratch it, it can turn red, painful and pus-filled. There are quite a few remedies out there for keratosis pilaris and one of them is the oh-so-soothing shea butter!

Shea butter is a natural plant butter extracted from the dried nuts of the Shea tree. It’s manually harvested by African women, who’ve been using it for centuries. It’s an excellent moisturizer and what makes it super amazing for keratosis pilaris is that it doesn’t clog pores! I’ve tried using other oils but shea butter is the one that won’t clog up that delicate sensitive skin.

Did you know that keratosis pilaris is actually influenced by genetics? My sister and cousin also have it. It’s so frustrating but thankfully, I don’t have to worry anymore! The most effective remedies to keep your white/red bumps under control is using shea butter and sugar scrubs.

Use the sugar scrubs in the shower at least every three days and the shea butter, you can use it every night after your shower. If you want to know how to use shea butter for keratosis pilaris, below are some effective ways:

How to Use Shea Butter for Keratosis Pilaris

1. Direct Application. I’m always someone who uses minimal ingredients on my body. And when you have sensitive skin issues like acne/keratosis pilaris, by all means use miminal skin care products. What I mean is, I don’t go ahead and slather different products on my body. I stick to homemade stuff and even if it’s homemade, I make sure not to mix up a whole lot of ingredients. So simply slathering a suitable amount of pure shea butter on your keratosis pilaris can be very effective in reducing inflammation and redness. It’s best when you use it in the shower before toweling off.

2. Tea Tree Oil Mix. Tea tree oil is very good at treating keratosis pilaris! It’s a powerful disinfectant that fights off bacteria and germs. What’s more is that it’s also a good anti-inflammatory substance. It reduces inflammation, hence reducing the appearance of keratosis pilaris.

3. Sugar scrub. My sugar scrub just consists of ½ cup of fine white sugar, ¼ cup of liquid coconut oil and a few drops of rosemary oil or dried rosemary powder. But you can definitely make a DIY Shea Butter Scrub (follow the link to go to my recipe). It’s much better since shea butter won’t clog your pores like coconut oil.

Where to Get Shea Butter

Always purchase 100% pure high quality shea butter, without any additives. I like shea butter that comes in a jar for easy application. You can purchase Molivera Organics Shea Butter or Perfect Body Harmony Shea Butter! Both come in a UV protectant jar and can keep your shea butter fresh for long! I also love Better Shea Butter’s Unrefined Shea Butter. I’ve been using it for long and it’s a great brand! It comes in a 1 pound packet.

DIY Hyperpigmentation Cream

We dark skinned gals tend to suffer from hypeprigmentation a lot. You know, when the skin around your mouth or eyes is darker than the rest of your face? Yeah and it sucks. It’s because of excess production of melanin.

Hyperpigmentation can happen to people of any race but it most commonly affects people with light brown to dark skin. Like African Americans, Indians, etc.

What causes hyperpigmentation? The most common causes are prolonged exposure to strong sunlight, acne, skin inflammation. Can hyperpigmentation be treated? Yes, if you go to a dermatologist, they can do something about it with lasers, microdermabrasions and chemical peels. That’s if you’ve got enough cash put aside for these expensive treatments. If you don’t, I want to tell you that you can use cheap natural ingredients to treat yourself at home! And the best part? They actually work.

Today, I’m going to show you guys how to make a DIY hyperpigmentation cream, with shea butter of course. I will be using natural skin lightening ingredients like lemon oil, argan oil, sesame oil and more.

DIY Hyperpigmentation Cream with Shea Butter

Make an effective DIY hyperpigmentation cream to even out your skin tone and remove discolorations fast!

What you need

Directions

  1. Begin by melting down the shea butter in a double boiler over low heat.
  2. Once it has liquefied, remove from heat and let it cool down for a minute.
  3. Now stir in the sesame oil and argan oil.
  4. Place the melted oils in the refrigerator for 15 minutes or freezer for 10 minutes to cool down and turn partially solid. This enables for easy whipping with the hand mixer.
  5. When the time is up, whip the partially solid mixture for about 5-7 minutes using a hand mixer.
  6. Scoop your fresh DIY hyperpigmentation cream into sterilized storage jars.
  7. Use only at night time on a clean dry face. Apply just a tiny amount and massage it in deep. The next morning, make sure to wash your face thoroughly, especially if you have acne because we don’t want clogged pores & breakouts!

Homemade Body Lotion for Glowing Skin

So you know at www.ilovesheabutter.com, we’re all about DIYing your own lotions, creams, body butters and more. Because there’s nothing that says healthy beautiful skin like making your own natural skin care products!

Today’s post is going to show you how to make your own homemade body lotion for glowing skin. That’s right, folks! Glowing skin is your ticket to looking youthful and mesmerizing! And it’s as easy as making your own body lotion!

What is glowing skin? It’s basically skin that glows and shines with health and beauty. Skin that’s well moisturized, free from dehydration and flakiness and naturally radiates is what you can call glowing skin.

Okay, now let’s look at the ingredients you’ll need to make this homemade body lotion for glowing skin, shall we?

Ingredients we’re going to Be Using

♥ Shea butter – Of course this has to be part of the ingredients! It’s obvious that shea butter is what we love most on this blog. It’s super rich in moisturizing emollients that keep skin hydrated for long. It’s also packed with Vitamin A, that prevents dry and flaky skin. Shea butter easily penetrates into skin, nourishing it from deep within and keeping it healthy.

♥ Coconut oil – Coconut oil is just as loved as shea butter! This creamy white oil feels heavenly on skin and it also sinks deep into the skin cells just like shea. It gives skin a beautiful sheen and many folks like applying it before heading to the beach for that natural glowing tan!

♥ Sesame oil – You’ve probably never heard of using this oil for skin, right?! Me too! Until I discovered that it is a natural skin lightener. Say what? Yup, folks, sesame oil has the power to lighten up your skin. This is fantastic news for those with skin discolorations, acne scars, dark marks, hyperpigmentation or if you just simply want your skin to become a shade lighter. It has a thick consistency, though so we’ll be using just a tad of it.

♥ Geranium oil – Geranium oil is fantastic for skin, ladies. It beats acne, reduces puffiness, promotes youthful skin and smells pretty too!

♥ Gold mica powder – I thought it would be a fantastic addition for a homemade glowing skin body lotion. It’ll give your skin a slight glowy/shimmery effect! It’s totally optional, though!

* For glowing skin, I’d normally add lemon oil but it’s phototoxic, meaning it can’t be worn when you’re heading out in the sun. If you do add lemon oil, you can only apply the lotion at night when they ain’t no sunshine outside. Why lemon oil? It lightens, brightens and shinifies skin (I know that’s not a real word, but yeah). It’s also my favorite essential oil to mix with shea butter:5 DIY Shea Butter & Lemon Oil Recipes

Shea Butter for Crow’s Feet – Can it Help?

Can shea butter remove/reduce crow's feet?

First off, crow’s feet is not related to crows or feet in any way. It’s a term used to describe the tiny creases and crinkles some people (mostly older people) have at the ends of their eyes. You’ll notice them when a person smiles, laughs or squints. Like this in the picture above.

Crow’s feet are definitely not appealing if one wants to look young. Apparently, the best way to get rid of crow’s feet is by getting Botox injections. But dayum, those are expensive plus those needles they use are really scary.

If you’ve just noticed crow’s feet creeping up on you, it’s time to start using a natural wrinkle-reducer called shea butter. It’s a luscious product from Heaven itself. Just kidding! It’s a plant-based butter extracted from the seeds of the fruits of the Shea tree. It’s native to Africa, where people have been using it for millennia to moisturize their skin and hair.

How Does Shea Butter Help Crow’s Feet?

What makes shea butter helpful for crow’s feet? Take a look below:

► Contains a Boatload of Vitamin A: Shea butter is very rich in vitamin A. It’s what gives it it’s yellowish color. Vitamin A is good for moisturizing dry skin. Dry skin is one of the major causes of wrinkles. A properly moisturized face is what makes skin supple and wrinkle-free.

► Boosts Collagen Production: Collagen is the protein structure that holds our skin together. Too little collagen makes our skin saggy and wrinkly. With its nourishing nutrient content, shea butter boosts collagen production. This keeps skin looking young and smooth.

► Intensely Moisturizes Skin: As we looked at above, dry skin causes wrinkles. So you have to ensure your skin is moisturized always to prevent crow’s feet. Remember, the skin near the eyes is very thin and doesn’t produce sebum. This makes it prone to dryness and wrinkles! A luscious butter, shea butter intensely moisturizes skin. It is soft, smooth and has a nice waxy consistency that gives skin a supple look.

► Rich in Anti-Oxidants: Antioxidants fight off free radicals which are unstable molecules that are known to cause premature aging. Free radicals cause wrinkles and crow’s feet by stealing oxygen molecules from healthy skin cells as a way of stabilizing themselves. Shea butter is rich in antioxidants like vitamin E that ward off free radicals.

How to Use Shea Butter for Crow’s Feet

You can choose to use shea butter directly on your crow’s feet. Or, mix it up with other anti-aging ingredients to create a powerful wrinkle-reducing cream.

Directly:

  1. Start by washing your face with a gentle cleanser. Make sure you apply the shea butter on a clean and dry face. If your skin is perpetually dry, then apply the shea butter on a damp face before you pat it dry.
  2. Scoop up a pea-sized amount of shea butter on your clean index finger. Massage it gently on your crow’s feet in circular motions.
  3. Apply your face moisturizer.

Using Shea Butter on Your Face at Night

Does using shea butter on your face at night have any benefits? It sure does! Learn the benefits plus how to use it in this post!

Night time is a special time when it comes to skin care. If you sleep with makeup on, you’ll end up with clogged pores the next day. And if you don’t cleanse your face properly before bed time, you might get breakouts. That’s because as we sleep, the skin produces sebum and sweat that can mingle with a dirty face and block the skin pores. This leads to clogged pores, breakouts, white heads and blackheads.

Our skin is actually actively at work at night time. It renews and repairs itself while we’re deep asleep! That’s why it’s important to help your skin with this renewal process by cleansing it and feeding it with proper nutrients.

What Does Using Shea Butter on Your Face at Night Do?

Using shea butter on your face at night is a wonderful therapy for beautiful skin. Shea butter is known to have lots of nourishing nutrients in it, such as:

  • Vitamin A – This vitamin is useful for keeping skin moisturized and preventing it from getting dry. It also helps fade scars and renew skin.
  • Vitamin E – Vitamin E is a great vitamin for beauty. It is a powerful antioxidant which fights off free radicals that cause premature aging. Vitamin E also moisturizes skin and helps heal blemishes.
  • Vitamin K – This less-known vitamin for beauty is actually good for dark circles, healing stretch marks, clotting of blood and promoting flawless skin.
  • Vitamin F – Also known as fatty acids, vitamin F moisturizes skin, protects it from harsh elements and keeps it supple.

Benefits of Use Shea Butter on Your Face at Night

Using shea butter on your face at night has so many benefits for skin including:

  • Boosting collagen
  • Promoting youthful skin, healing acne
  • Regenerating skin cells
  • Healing scars
  • Lubricating dry skin
  • Soothing irritated
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Evening out hyperpigmented skin
  • Reducing under-eye dark circles
  • Reducing blemishes
  • Brightening skin

*Some people even put shea butter only at night time because they believe it tans the face when used in the day. I’m not sure about this. But I ain’t believing it. To me, shea butter helps lighten skin.

Shea Butter for Dark Spots on Legs | Does it Work?

Okay, a lot of people want to know if they can use shea butter for dark spots on their legs. And if it works…So that’s why I’m writing this post. I hope it helps anyone out there!

Got Dark Spots on Your Legs? It could be from ingrown hairs, shaving, scars or practically anything out there. Maybe shea butter can help you! Learn how to use it for this particular problem!

Dark spots on legs can mean a variety of things. Personally, when I hear the phrase ‘dark spots on legs’ I immediately think of ingrown hairs. But it can be different things for many people: mosquito bite scars, chicken pox scars, shaving dots or basically anything else. Most of them, however, are caused by scarring or shaving.

Shea Butter – Your Miracle Skin Care Product

Here at www.ilovesheabutter.com, we LOVE shea butter and talk about how it’s mighty useful for a lot of things: from acne to hair loss. And we’ve also explored shea butter for scars, saying it does work on reducing scarring. So if your dark marks are caused by scarring, then good news! Shea butter might help reduce or eliminate them! What makes shea butter good for scars and discolorations? It is its rich vitamin A, K and E content. You can read more about shea butter for scars here. Now, let’s move on to how to go about using shea butter for dark spots on legs:

How to Use Shea Butter for Dark Spots on Legs

To begin your shea butter treatment, the first thing you gotta do is wash and exfoliate your legs very well. Exfoliating helps A TON in getting rid of scars overtime. It also minimizes ingrown hairs, if that’s what’s causing your dark spots. So what’s you’re going to do is use a gentle but effective sugar scrub to scrounge off the dead cells on your legs. Exfoliating will help by lifting off the old dark skin off the dark spots. Note that this won’t happen in a jiffy but overtime! So here’s how to go about using shea butter for your dark spots:

1. Make an exfoliating sugar scrub. Combine ½ cup of fine white sugar with ¼ cup sunflower oil. Store in a clean container in the refrigerator. Now once in two days, take a hot shower then gently scrub about 1-2 tsp of the sugar scrub all over your legs or where the dark spots are. Make sure to apply the scrub on wet legs. Scrub for a minute then rinse off.

2. Wash with African Black Soap. Now pump some liquid African Black soap onto your hand and wash your legs. Wipe your legs dry. African black soap is 100% natural and deeply cleanses pores. It helps with stuff like clogged pores, acne and uneven skin.

3. Okay, it’s time to apply some shea! But rather than using it directly, it’s much more effective if you add other scar-erasing ingredients like vitamin E oil to it! So add 2 tbsp shea butter, 1 tsp vitamin e oil, 5 drops lavender oil and 5 drops frankincense oil to a mixing bowl. Now whip all ingredients using a hand mixer until light and fluffy. It may take 2-3 minutes. Voila! Your cream is ready! Store in a clean container. Apply some all over your legs.

4. Repeat this every other day or at least thrice a week because exfoliating daily is not recommended.

The above regimen is a great way to get rid of dark spots on legs or practically anywhere on the body! Are you willing to try it out?

Homemade Thick Creamy Body Wash

A homemade thick creamy body wash is every beauty DIYer’s dream…isn’t it? And if you’re a DIY enthusiast like me, then you’ll be blown away by this thick and creamy body wash.

First off, it’s totally natural. Like nothing in the ingredients is synthetic! That means you’re treating your skin to the max with utmost love and natural goodness.

Making your own body wash is so fantastic because you can add your favorite scents to make it smell gorgeous! I chose the combination of lavender, geranium and tea tree because it smells divine. These essential oils are also antibacterial and antimicrobial so your skin will be acne-free!

I used coconut oil but if you live in a relatively cold area where you know your coconut oil will get hard and solidify, then by all means, please use fractionated coconut oil. I also used almond oil – both coconut and almond oils make your skin soft and smooth!

This homemade thick creamy body wash lathers very well. When you step out of the shower, your skin may be feeling oily BUT once you dry off with a towel, it’ll turn smooth and oh-so-soft, I promise!

Onto the recipe!

DIY Pumpable Homemade Body Lotion

Homemade thick and creamy body wash! It's so easy to make and lathers well! It feels so good and moisturizing too! Great for dry skin

What you Need

Directions

  1. Begin by melting your coconut using a double boiler.
  2. When it’s down to liquid form, place it in a Pyrex measuring cup then add the vegetable glycerin and stir briskly.
  3. Now slowly pour in the almond oil, liquid castile soap and vitamin E oil.
  4. Blend everything slowly in small pulses together with an immersion blender so it combines into a thick liquid.
  5. When it turns thicky white and creamy, add in the essential oils and blend again.
  6. Once everything is well combined, pour into your pump bottle using a funnel. It makes 16 oz.

My Tips

► It lasts more than 3 months but make sure not to get any water into it! Water will contaminate it. It’s better off to pour only 8 oz into a small pump bottle then store the rest in the refrigerator so you can keep refilling as it gets done. This way, you can make sure to lengthen its shelf life.

► If you don’t have an immersion blender, you can use a high speed blender. But the best thing to use is an immersion blender since it combines everything VERY well so your body wash won’t separate.

► Instead of the essential oils I used, you can use your own favorites, for example, use lemon oil with lavender oil for a fresh citrusy scent! Or, combine cedarwood oil and vetiver oil for a masculine scent.

DIY Pumpable Homemade Body Lotion

People love pumpable lotions. It’s so easy to just pump a little amount instead of having to dig your fingers into a jar. So that’s why I decided to share an easy DIY pumpable homemade body lotion recipe!

I noticed that people who make their own pumpable homemade body lotions use oatmeal water as the liquid ingredient. But this is so wrong. Oatmeal water can make your lotion grow mold so fast that you’ll have to throw it away ASAP. All that hard work gone to the bin! That’s sad news!

In this lotion recipe, I’ll be using an organic hydrosol that is very pure and won’t spoil your lotion. Before we look at the DIY pumpable lotion recipe, let me first go through the ingredients we shall be using and their benefits:

♥ Rose water – This is the liquid ingredient for your lotion to be a pumpable lotion. It’s also skin soothing and cooling for a fresh lotion!

♥ Almond oil – This oil is moisturizing without being greasy.

♥ Coconut oil – A creamy oil, coconut oil easily penetrates into skin and moisturizes it.

♥ Beeswax pastilles – Thickens the lotion and makes it more solid so it isn’t runny.

♥ Raw honey – This is the emulsifier that combines all the ingredients together. It’s also nourishing and medicinal so it’s good for skin!

♥ Essential oil – Gives the lotion a gorgeous scent! It also has antimicrobial properties to protect the lotion from germs. Essential oils also have their own skin saving properties! For a body lotion, I recommend you add lavender oil, geranium oil, ylang ylang oil, frankincense oil or jasmine oil. They all smell fantastic, I tell ya!
