Fall is upon us, and winter will quickly follow.  As the weather changes we need to protect our bodies. I want to focus on the lips, we all love soft lips.  It would really annoy me when my lips would dry out because of the changes in weather. In the summer I worried about burning, and peeling, the windy fall, drying, and in the winter, cracking.  Like most of you for years I would grab for some type of chapstick and go on about my business.  Well it is definitely better than nothing but my lips weren’t getting any conditioning or moisture, just a seal to block out the elements.  Many chapstick products are petroleum jelly based, and like I mentioned it creates a seal, the type where nothing gets in and nothing gets out, and it just sits on your lip until you remove it or eat it away.

The great thing about camellia seed oil, and shea butter is that they both, retain, and seal in moisture, and is readily absorbed keeping your lips soft. Now I use TeaShea Lip Balm to keep my lips soft, supple, and conditioned year round.  The antioxidants in this lip balm helps fight off  free radicals not only making my lips have a more youthful appearance but also helps to improve the health of my lips. 

Get your TeaShea lip balm, and tell us how it works out for you.

Caio for now,

Shay Bella

Summer is the perfect reason most of us use to shed our shoes, and show off our feet.  Even some of the most shy feel okay letting the tootsies out.  I love looking for that perfect sandal or open toe shoe to showcase my newly pedicured size 10 feet.  Most nail shops have moved away from sloughing of  callouses naturally with a pumice stone to offering a liquid callous remover to help rid the feet of built up cracks, and callouses.  It probably had to do with all the sweat needed to tame those stubborn nodules.

On a couple of my visits I chose to have the liquid callous remover, what I noticed was that my feet begin to dry out quicker, along with flakiness.  Well needless to say I no longer use the remover, and stick to asking for the old fashioned pumice. These products are usually acid callus removal treatments that contain salicylic, citric or hydroxy acids. 

With a little research I found that these treatments are generally safe, but could have some adverse implications for people with medical conditions like diabetes, or poor circulation, it is possible the acid could burn a hole in the foot because of nerve damage associated with these conditions.  Caution should also be taken if you have painful, or bleeding callouses, it would be wise to check with your doctor.

To combat the daily beating on my feet I use our body balm daily to keep my heels, and the bottom of my feet soft, and moisturized.  Because of the antioxidants and high content of natural emollients in tea seed oil, and shea butter my feet look great everyday.  I even use it on my elbows, and knees, areas we tend to neglect. 

Try one of our balms, and let me know how it works out for you.

A little about me, I love anything that has to do with Tea.  I have several certifications in tea, Yes, there are certification for tea, lol!  TeaShea is a product line born of that love and our tea company. I will always have a cup of tea at my side, I may refer to a tea that I am drinking while chatting with you and will most definitely share some of those tips where appropriate. As you know there is a lot of information coming out about all the benefits tea has to offer.  Well that is not limited to just the beverage, tea seed oil is the oil that is pressed out of the tea seed.  The oil offers the same great benefits.

The Shea part of it come from Shea Butter that is another incredible skin moisturizer, and conditioner. we have combined these two to create a product that will benefit your hair, and skin needs.

Like any conversation it is more fun when everyone has something to say.  Please send me your comments and questions.
