Shea Butter

Shea butter is extracted from the nut of the African shea tree. It has moisturizing, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties and contains vitamins A and E, as well as five essential fatty acids. Shea butter helps fade acne and other scars, heals sunburned, cracked and peeling skin, soothes skin allergies and reduces muscle aches. While shea butter is great for hydrating most of your skin, it should not be used on the face. It is very rich and can make some people break out.

Plank

Planks are one of the best exercises we can do to help strengthen our core, which are the muscles that support our back and abdomen. A strong core supports your spine, internal organs, posture and the power of all your movements. It also helps us perform every day activities with a little more ease. When doing the plank, it is important to always remember to keep your spine straight.
