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. ...Read more

Can cocoa butter lotion get rid off razor bumps on the bikini line? Especially if i'm a regular shaver & plucker in that area?

Can cocoa butter lotion get rid off razor bumps on the bikini line? Especially if i'm a regular shaver & plucker in that area?

May make it worse: Cocoa butter lotion is made from the cacao plant, and not the coconut oil. So, cocoa butter has moisturizing properties more than antiseptic properties. Raw coconut oil has antibacterial, antiviral, and moisturizing properties too. The lotion may be too thick to put on your bumps, and using something like aloe vera would be more suitable than either cocoa butter or coconut. Use something gentle. ...Read more

Does aloe Vera gel, cocoa butter lotion, or vitamin E oil heal mild scars on the face and body?

Does aloe Vera gel, cocoa butter lotion, or vitamin E oil heal mild scars on the face and body?

Possible: There is no proven scar healer out there that I am aware of, keeping the area clean and soft should help with decreasing the amount of scar build up. I have always thought that sunblock for the first year on a scar is important to avoid excessive scarring as sun damage can exacerbate a scar. Most scars overtime though do improve, the body usually does a good job at healing itself. ...Read more

Systemic glucocorticoids may be needed on occasion for extreme itching. ...Read more

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! ...Read more
