Summer’s Here!

Untitled

Shea Touch has come up with a few helpful tips to keep in mind while your showing skin and letting your hair down:

  • Always wear sunscreen. There are consequences to keeping skin your skin unprotected in the sun. UV rays from the sun can cause sunburn or even skin cancer. Keep in mind that a higher SPF doesn’t mean the sunscreen is better or will protect you from all types of sun damage. The FDA recommends SPF values of 15 or higher.
  • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Being out in the summer causes us to sweat more and get dehydrated faster.
  • Exfoliating during the summer helps to get rid of dead dry skin cells.
  • Avoiding working or playing outside between 10am- 4pm when the sun is at its peak.

Let us know what’s your summer regimen?

Babies and Eczema

Baby eczema generally occurs the first few months the baby is born. Eczema can be a discomforting process to go through, but with the right products and patience eczema can be outgrown over time.

What can trigger baby eczema?

Dry skin. There has to be enough moisture getting into the skin, if not the skin will become irritated causing it to be inflamed.

Irritants such as wool baby clothes, body soaps, and laundry soaps all can flare up eczema.

Heat and sweat. Hot temperatures can cause your baby to sweat which can make eczema worse. Avoid putting too many blankets on your baby or overdressing.

What can help with baby eczema?  

Moisturizers. A good moisturizer, fragrance-free cream, or ointment, when used daily, will help your baby’s skin retain moisture. Works best if you apply immediately after a bath.

A lukewarm bath can help hydrate, cool the skin, and the lessen itching.

Covering the hands at night will ensure that your baby doesn’t scratch; too much scratching can lead to scarring.

Surviving Curl Hair

With the right products you can embrace your natural curl pattern! Curly hair can have its ups and downs, but Shea Touch has come up with a few tips to get you through surviving curly hair:

Conditioner

When it comes to curly hair you will need a good conditioner. The purpose of a conditioner is to put moisture and nutrients back into the hair. If you’re going to shampoo the hair opt for sulfate free cleansers, they are gentle on your hair and scalp.

Using too much product

Using too much product in your hair can weigh the hair down and cause build up. It’s better to use lightweight products such as serums, creams and lotions that are easier on your curls.

Sleep on a satin pillowcase

A satin pillowcase won’t take the oils from your hair overnight like cotton pillows. The right pillow can reduce the fizz and keep your curls intact.

Be selective with combs

Use a wide-tooth comb instead of brushes or combs with narrow teeth. Using wide-tooth combs decreases the likelihood of frizzing and unwanted breakage.

Taking Care of Your Feet

We use our feet everyday whether we are walking, running or just standing. This being said, it is important that we find the time to give our feet attention, just like we do for the rest of our body.

Shea Touch has come up with some useful tips to take into consideration when it comes to dealing with your precious feet:

Washing your feet

Washing your feet tends to be overlooked while in the shower. You’re on your feet every day and washing them ensures that there isn’t dirt left from the day.

Moisturize

Moisturizing helps heal dry cracked feet as well as relieves stress from the day. If you are dealing with dry, cracked, or callused feet then a heavy moisturizer or oil can suffice. Try to wear white cotton socks to bed each night after applying the moisturizer. This will make your feet soft and supple as well help take care of calluses.

 Choosing the right Footwear

When it comes to buying shoes make sure they are not too tight. The extra room is used for support and comfort. Also try not to wear socks or stockings that are either too short or too tight because they can interfere with the circulation of blood to your feet.

Shea Touch is proud to offer a Foot Care line made with a perfect blend of natural and rich shea butter, apricot kernel oil, castor oil and turmeric oil. Shea butter and turmeric oil are well known for their natural soothing, healing and anti-inflammatory effects. This formula is based on ages old African and Indian traditions to help soothe and heal cracked heels.

Struggling with Acne

Whether a teenager or an adult, no one is safe when it comes to acne. According the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), acne is one of the most common skin problems in the United States. Acne is prone to occurring when dirt and oil get into your pores developing into an unwanted pimple.

Shea Touch has come up with a few tips when dealing with acne:

  1. Don’t bust pimples. Busting pimples only creates scars once the pimple is gone.
  2. Always wash your hands before touching your face.
  3. Try to keep your hair away from your face so the oils from your hair won’t transfer to your skin.
  4.  Your skin needs to breathe so make sure you’re not sleeping in your makeup, too much build up can cause pimples.
