Today, let us spend a few minutes looking at Body butters.

Do you know what they really are? How to use them? And why to use them?

What is Body butter?

Body butters are a must-have item for any bathroom shelf, especially if you are interested in keeping your skin moisturised and glowing.

  • They typically contain vegetable-based oils and butters like shea, coconut and cocoa.
  • They are known for being thicker and more nourishing than body lotions and moisturisers. Which is why you will most likely find body butters in a jar instead of a bottle.
  • They are known to be more effective at nourishing and rejuvenating dry skin, especially when used on problem areas like elbows and knees.

During the colder months, body butters will be your skincare best friend.

What are the best ways to use Body butter?

The best way to use body butter is to apply it after your daily shower or bath. As a top tip, leave your skin a little damp. Do not dry your skin completely.

Apply a good sized amount of body butter to your skin and gently massage until it it is fully absorbed. Try and avoid using too much  - you can always apply another layer if you feel like your skin needs extra moisturisation during the day.

Pay special attention to your elbows, knees, hands and feet. These areas are prone to dryness and will benefit from the nourishment of body butters.

Favourite thing: One of my favourite things about body butter is that it helps perfume last all day long! The oils in the body butter create the perfect base for your perfume - this gives the perfume somthing to stick to!
