Does your skin care routine change with the season? Your answer should definitely be a yes! I love keeping it cool during the Spring and Summer seasons with an extra dose of sunscreen, lighter lotions and facial sprays… but when the Fall and Winter temperatures start rolling in, it’s time for me to bring out the super moisturizing oils and creams that will keep my skin looking fresh and healthy through the brittle weather and shorter darker days.
I have a number of products that I turn to when it comes to my favorite winter skin care routine, but there’s one special ingredient that they all seem to have in common: shea butter. Used for centuries by women in Sub-Saharan Africa as a moisturizer to protect their skin and hair, shea butter has quickly expanded its reach to become a household favorite for women all over the world who are looking to achieve a soft and vibrant complexion… a product that works for our entire bodies too, not just our faces! I know that for me personally, my skin on my legs tends to get really dry in the winter, and shea butter is my go-to cure to restore moisture without a greasy residue.
L’Occitane is one of my favorite places to get my shea butter products from, and I love their products for several reasons. With their commitment to natural ingredients that are good for you, I’m always confident in the products that I am using on my body… and they are all about giving back too. The shea butter found in L’Occitane products is always sourced Sustainable Fair Trade from female led collectives in Burkina Faso, taking an extra step to empower women living in the developing world.
