Skin care is an important part of my daily routine, but it becomes especially crucial during the fall-to-winter transition when colder temps and drier air leave the skin feeling parched and brittle. Shea butter is one of the best ways to keep your skin healthy and hydrated—and the Shea Body Care line from L'Occitane has everything you need to keep your skin soft and supple all year long. Shea butter is produced in Burkina Faso, where women make the butter by hand from the fruit of the shea tree. Through a partnership with Burkina Faso the shea butter obtained by L'Occitane for use in its products is produced exclusively by female led collectives using Fair Trade practices.
I like to start the day with the Shea Ultra Rich Body Cream to give my skin a little life and combat any overnight dryness. Made from 25% shea butter, this super strong formula keeps the skin nourished for up to 72 hours. I usually hit the gym mid-morning and the Shea Body Shower Oil has become my go-to post-workout shower essential. It cleanses the skin and helps start the rehydration process after a sweat-filled weights session—not to mention it smells great. I also like to keep the Shea Rich Body Lotion on my desk to keep my hands from drying out when I'm catching up on emails or editing the latest shoot. And for those days when I need a little more moisture, the line's Shea Fabulous Oil's rich, silky texture leaves my hands feeling like new without the annoying greasy residue most oils trail behind.
