Body butters not only moisturize your skin but give it a wonderful glow. Learn what are the three best ones from organic beauty products expert Spirit Demerson, who also shares a tip on how best to apply body butter.
Some of the best body butters for the skin are cocoa butter, which has that nice chocolatey aroma to it, and a nice rich texture. Shea butter which has a melting point which is about skin temperature so it absorbs really nicely into the skin. And mango seed butter which is a bit more oily textured and gives a nice sheen to the skin and is a little nicer if you need something lightweight. The best time to apply body butter is actually directly out of the shower while your skin is still a little bit moist. Body butters help lock in the moisture that's already in your skin, because they're a little bit richer, if you're applying them to dry skin they may not absorb as well, and they may have a tendency to sit on top of the skin. Shea butter is the favorite body butter for anyone who has extra dry skin because it is so very hydrating. It does have a distinct aroma to it, but you can use also refined Shea butter, which is deodorized, loses a little bit of its nutrient value but is just as hydrating. And those are some of the best body butters and ways to use them for glowing skin.
