Cocoa butter is a rich and nourishing ingredient that can do wonders for your skin. Here are 10 steps for using cocoa butter for better skin:

  1. Start by choosing high-quality, pure, and organic cocoa butter...found in Zedian Queen products.

  2. Cleanse your skin thoroughly and pat it dry with a soft towel.

  3. Scoop a small amount of cocoa butter onto your fingertips and warm it up by rubbing your hands together.

  4. Apply the cocoa butter to your face, neck, and body using gentle, circular motions. Be sure to massage it well, paying extra attention to dry or rough areas.

  5. When possible, allow the cocoa butter to absorb into your skin for at least 15-20 minutes before getting dressed.

  6. For best results, use cocoa butter every day, preferably after bathing or showering when your skin is still slightly damp.

  7. If you have very dry or sensitive skin, you may want to mix the cocoa butter with a carrier oil, such as coconut or almond oil, to make it more easily absorbed.

  8. You can also add a few drops of essential oils, such as lavender or tea tree oil, to your cocoa butter for added benefits.

  9. Be patient and consistent with your use of cocoa butter. It may take several weeks or even months to see significant improvements in your skin.

  10. Finally, don't forget to protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays by wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, even when using cocoa butter.

We all have a level of protein in our hair. What is important is knowing your hair and what level of protein is needed for healthy hair maintenance. Some, with low porosity, don't require a lot of protein. Those, like myself, with high porosity, tend to need more protein or more frequent applications.

Protein helps to build a barrier on our hair strands, this is why balancing protein and moisture is vital when it comes to natural hair. Why? When these two are not working together your hair can either become dry and brittle, or limp and unmanageable (hygral fatigue).

Protein treatments vary. Hydrolyzed Protein is most common. The molecular structure of this product is small, yet concentrated enough to offer excellent penetration...providing quality effectiveness and results.

I use hydrolyzed protein once or twice a year. However, I use my hibiscus and fenugreek leave-in conditioner regularly. Both fenugreek and hibiscus offer generous, yet safe, protein levels which benefit my curls in multiple ways.

As many of you know, I recently had major surgery. It was a decision that was not taken lightly. After years of physical pain, frustration and miscarriages, I had to say goodbye to what was causing so much turmoil. I entered this season knowing that my quality of life would change for the better and I would be released of most (if not all) the physical limitations I had become a prisoner of.

So, here we are, post-op and I'm making changes to my spiritual walk with God, physical fitness (limited for a few more weeks) and diet. After sitting down (literally) for four weeks while healing, I have had plenty of time to think on these things and prepare for change. As much as I looooove to have a clean house, even if that means spending the entire day cleaning, I have to take more time in self-care.

My hope is that you will join me on my journey as I travel down the road of self-care. You will see what effect this procedure causes to my hair, body and overall well-being. Follow posts here, Facebook and Instagram: Zedian Queen for weekly progress reports and updates.

We must do better for ourselves in order to be our best. Take care of yourself.
