It’s a good question, to be sure. Many people think that in order to do enough for their skin, they have to do a lot. Bathrooms overflowing with different beauty and skincare products are testaments to this phenomenon. But it doesn’t have to be this way. In reality, you actually do not need a huge lineup of specialized skincare products. To make things easier on yourself, look instead for products that do more than one thing. You can have an easy, quick and effective skincare routine without sacrificing results. All you need is Shea butter.

Similar to many products that are 2-in-1 or multi use, Shea butter targets and heals more than one skin issue at a time. In every application you are targeting dryness, redness, irritations, flaking, dehydration, collagen loss and anti aging via vitamins A, C and E. No moisturizer, toner, mask or any other specialty product is needed, because Shea butter already did their jobs for them. This means that you have more free time to do the things you love. It also means that you get more bang for your buck, and with better results to boot.

Additionally, you can take a multidimensional product like Shea butter and use it as a base for other ingredients to make it even more effective than if you were to use it alone. Essential oils and other carriers like Coconut and Jojoba oil blend beautifully with Shea butter for an easy to make and even easier to use moisturizing and healing oil blend. Have fun and use your creativity.

However, if you like having and using multiple skincare products every day, then by all means do it. What’s important is that you don’t feel like you have to in order to have clear, healthy skin. Perhaps you only use your one, do-it-all product on days when you're in a rush, and save the others for when you have more time. What you give yourself with a multidimensional product like Shea butter is freedom- freedom to use what you want, when you want, without feeling pressure or fear.

You can have the skin you desire with the skincare routine you’ve always wanted. Get fancy when you want to and keep it simple when you don’t, all while enjoying the peace of mind that comes from knowing that whatever it is you are doing for your skin is working- every time.
