Directions


This acne cream contains only two commonly found ingredients: shea butter and peppermint essential oil. The use of peppermint for acne is well-known due to the herb's antimicrobial and antiseptic properties. Its menthol content also provides a cooling effect that can gently soothe irritated and acne-stricken skin. Shea, on the other hand, is not only antimicrobial, but also happens to be rich in vitamins A and E, both of which are essential for skin hydration, wound healing, and inflammation reduction.

  1. Using a hand-held mixer, whip up the shea butter until smooth and creamy.(3 minutes)
  2. Add the peppermint essential oil drops and mix well.(2 minutes)
  3. Transfer to a container and enjoy!

Apply this shea peppermint cream for acne as often as needed. To preserve its freshness, keep it in a dark, dry place or in the refrigerator.
