Why you should try Cocoa Butter for your skin
Cocoa butter is a natural, fatty oil that is extracted from cocoa bean and is also called as Theobroma oil, a product that is highly beneficial for the skin. Real, natural cocoa butter is edible, used in many foods and to help in skin repair. How does it help?
- Cocoa butter helps in rejuvenating the skin as it strengthens it by healing it from inside to the outside.
- It works as a great moisturiser as it not just heals but hydrates the skin, preventing dryness and keeping the skin soft and supple.
- It heals dry and cracked skin quickly as the saturated fats get absorbed easily and stay on the skin for long preventing it from drying easily.
- Best for people with sensitive skin because it causes no side effects or irritation as it is completely natural with no chemical additives.
- Its natural fragrance ensure the skin remains fresh to feel and smell too.
- Aids in fixing cry and chapped lips as it hydrates the delicate skin. Cocoa butter is a popular ingredient in homemade lip balms as it ensures the lips remain soft and it can be mixed with essential oils like grapefruit or vanilla for flavour and fragrance.
- The antioxidants and polyphenols prevent skin degeneration, soothe the skin, promote healthy skin and diminish early signs of aging, keeping the skin youthful and blemish free.
- In case of burns, rashes or infections, applying cocoa butter to the affected area helps in replenishing the skin and is natural treatment for many skin diseases like dermatitis and eczema.
- Using cocoa butter while shaving keeps the skin hydrated and gives a smooth finish. It also opens pores ensuring better absorption.
- Using cocoa butter regularly protects the skin from harmful effects of everyday makeup products and reduces their visible aftereffects.
