When we say natural body butter, we aren't saying to grab the block of butter from your fridge and rub it on your skin. No, we are talking about body butters, one of the most nourishing ways to treat your skin. Oftentimes, you can even just use a body butter as your skincare routine rather than using a 10-step process.
What Are Body Butters?
Body butters have a much thicker consistency than normal lotions and moisturizers, so they may take a bit more work to rub into the skin than usual. However, body butters don't have any water in them, so they don't dry out your skin. They also last much longer.
Body butters have a variety of uses: body lotion, face care, foot moisturizer, and more. They can practically be used for any part of the body to give your skin a lively and radiant look and feel. While body butters begin in a solid form, they melt upon touch just as coconut oil does. To use body butters, let the body butter get soft then gently rub it into your skin. It will melt into the skin and be absorbed, leaving your skin feeling moisturized and refreshed.
How Do You Know Which One Is Right For You?
There are so many body butters to choose from, and it is important that you find the one that is right for you. While they are all very moisturizing, some serve different purposes than others. For example, each body butter has a different texture, different benefits, different vitamins, different fatty acids, and different SPF amounts.
Along with their different characteristics, body butters also have many different uses, and not all of them are just skin moisturizers. Body butters come in the form of lip balms, soaps, creams, hair care, and skin moisturizers.
To know which one is right for you, you must first know what you are looking for in a body butter. Is your skin dry? If so, you may want to find one that is more moisturizing. Are you looking for something that will protect your skin from the sun? Find one with a higher SPF. Go through the list of what your skin needs and find a body butter that suits those needs. Everyone's skin is different and needs different things, so look for what best fits your needs.
