Bad sun burn: Butter will accentuate the damaging rays of the sun. There is evidence that severe sun burn may lead to skin cancer. Tell your cousin to use commercial sun screen and put the butter on her bread.

Can coco butter get rid of my pimples?

Can coco butter get rid of my pimples?

No : I would advise you not to use cocco butter for pimples as the butter is lipid rich and application on the face would "clog pores" and as such could worse your acne.

Skin tone variation : Changes in skin tone are very common after trauma to the skin. These changes are more visible in darker skin, but occur in all skin types. Sun protection with sunscreen is always the first step. You can try topical agents that decrease skin pigment, but these have unreliable success.

I have hyperpigmentation in my bikini area and the scarring is dark. Is coco butter or Ambi fade cream a good product to use? i need something to work

See below: Bikini area is normally of darker color. It would not be a good idea to put chemicals on your skin in the private areas. You are likely to do more harm than good. Do not shave your private parts either. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine.

Is equate cocoa butter intense moisturizing body lotion good for your face as well? Can it help the redness on my cheeks?

Is equate cocoa butter intense moisturizing body lotion good for your face as well?  Can it help the redness on my cheeks?

Any good lotion is : Fine for facial skin, especially if it does not dry, irritate, or cause itching itself. Redness due to irritation and inflammation can be reduced if the irritation and inflammation is reduced, but redness due to emotion (blush) or rosacea will not be affected. Stay out of the sun!

Discontinue...: Discontinue further use of topical cream but thinly applying steroid cream after gentle cleaning and drying. Meanwhile, collect the feature, degree, and progress of the related symptoms with their detailed sequence of event, and bring those to doc for review, analysis, more hx, physicals, tests as needed so to deduce a reasonable DX for proposing rx.

I used cocoa butter lotion on my face and body but i am constantly in the sun, does that make me burn easier? Also should i used aloe lotions instead?

USE SUNSCREEN: Any kind of oil like cocoa butter will magnify the sun's rays and make you more likely to burn. You should use a labeled sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 and reapply every 2-3 hours, more often if swimming or sweating. Aloe will help AFTER you burn, but does little to prevent and it is far better never to burn.
