Acne Scars Treated with Shea Butter

Shea Butter is very helpful for those fighting facial scarring due to acne. If used daily, immediate improvements in the scars on your skin will be noted within 10 -14 days.

Shea butter will keep your skin hydrated. Keeping the skin hydrated is very important in the fight against acne scars because the skin is made up of 80% water.

Shea Butter also helps to fight acne scarring because it contains Vitamins A and E, as well as many healthy fats and acids that promote clean smooth skin. Shea butter used as an acne facial treatment is very effective treating facial pimples and blemishes due to its highly effective agent for killing the bacteria that is responsible for acne infection. Shea butter kills the bacteria that causes acne, reduces the sebum production, and helps to get rid of dead skin cells preventing the clogged pores.

If your skin is oily prone, only use a tiny amount of the product-about 1/4-1/2 the size of a dime. If you have dry acne, which is more commonly seen in adult onset acne, use Shea Butter in the amount about the size of one dime for a clearer complexion.
