Sun damage is one of those things that tend to creep up on you. One day your skin looks fine, and the next you’ve got two new sunspots! While this can seem frustrating, and maybe even a bit bewildering, it is treatable and preventable. By protecting your skin from excessive oxidation and harmful free radicals, you can keep sun damage in check. The highest quality of high end healing Shea butter skin care can help to correct, heal, and prevent sun damage so your skin can go from mottled, rough and wrinkled to soft, smooth and even-toned.

Sun damage comes from your skin reacting to an onslaught of pro-aging oxidizing factors that are introduced to your skin when it has been improperly exposed to the sun. The most obvious example of this would be when you get a sunburn, but it can also happen without ever getting burned. Sometimes your skin doesn’t burn, but because it isn’t being supplied with the anti aging and reparative compounds necessary to keep it healthy, your skin begins to deteriorate.

This deterioration happens when pro-aging oxidizing factors such as free radicals are created within the skin and nothing is there to neutralize them. As you may or may not know, free radicals set off a chain reaction that creates more free radicals the longer they are left out of check, and this chain reaction is largely responsible for everything from fine lines and wrinkles to sun spots and a rough, leathery texture. The key to preventing and healing this damage is to give the skin a lot of antioxidants and essential fatty acids.

The antioxidants found in raw African Shea butter neutralize those pesky pro-aging free radicals and in doing so prevent further oxidative damage from being done. The essential fatty acids give your skin the building blocks it needs in order to rebuild and have a smooth, soft and perfectly firm texture. Shea butter is also unique in that it contains a small amount of natural SPF factors that can help protect your skin from the sun, much like a very mild sunscreen.

All of these things come together to create a wonderfully simple to use and effective healing balm that can be your ally in preventing and correcting the occurrence of sun damage in your skin. Daily use of raw African Shea butter coupled with smart sun exposure is the perfect strategy to protect your skin and keep it looking young and healthy for years to come.
