DWTS' Cheryl Burke Post Work-Out Secret: Emu Oil Lotion

Just by looking at the photo of Dancing with the Stars' Cheryl Burke, you can see that she has really nice skin. And we were surprised to learn that the amazing dancer is hooked on emu oil lotion. It's her go-to beauty product after a work-out.

We've written about the benefits of emu oil before. But we didn't think the excellent emollient was that well-known. We read that Jenny McCarthy uses it all the time for a facial moisturizer, but we're happy to see that more celebrities are raving about this unique oil, and the many products that can be developed from it.

Emu oil comes from the emu, a large flightless, ostrich-like bird. Maybe not the prettiest animal on the block. But Australian aborigines were said to have discovered the anti-aging benefits of extracting this oil thousands of years ago. And what researchers have come to learn is that there is something in the oil that is compatible to human skin.

Leigh Hopkins, PhD. explained it in this manner. "The fatty acid composition of emu oil is very close to the correct composition of the fats as found in normal, human skin."

Above all, emu oil can make your skin softer and glowing.

Cheryl Burke prefers her emu oil in a lotion form. We found her favorite at the EmuStore for $15.95.

And we can see why the pro dancer loves this stuff. It contains the added benefit of Pure Emu Oil as well as the healing benefits of Mango Butter and Coconut Milk.

"After working out, I put on Emu Oil body lotion. It keeps me really hydrated."

Great beauty tip, Cheryl Burke!
