When you think of body butters do you only think of how moisturizing it can be for your dry, cracked skin?
Well, nothing says “moisturize” quite like a really good all-natural body butter. But there are so many more benefits. We will be highlighting 6 benefits of using our body butters that you may not have already thought about.
1) OUR BODY BUTTERS PROTECT YOUR SKIN
Our body butters use shea butter which is a staple of many beauty products in Africa. Shea butter is rich with vitamins A, C, and E. These are powerful antioxidants that work together to protect your skin and reduce the risk of damage caused by the sun and other conditions that may be unkind to skin.
2) OUR BODY BUTTERS CARE FOR YOUR SKIN
Our body butters also help relieve symptoms of certain skin conditions like eczema and dermatitis. While we encourage you to consult with a dermatologist for proper treatment of these conditions, many clients have shared how our body butters help ease the itching and burning from these conditions. We have also had great feedback when used for certain skin ailments, such as rashes, stretch marks, burns, and bites. Our body butters reduce the pain and discomfort while also helping your skin look and feel nourished and cared for.
3) OUR BODY BUTTERS CAN BE USED FOR HAIR CARE
We often hear the question, "What can I use body butter for?" While formulated for body care, our body butters can also be used for hair care especially during the cold winter months. This is because our body butters contain coconut oil which acts to protect your hair in the same way it does your skin.
Same as with skin, a little goes a long way. Too much body butter in your hair can make it look greasy. Put a small amount of body butter into your hand, let it melt a little, and then rub it into your hair. This is ideal before you wash your hair.
The nutrients of a body butter when rubbed into the scalp, can help strengthen your hair follicles and reduce hair loss. Using body butter for hair can also ease symptoms of a dry and itchy scalp.
So our body butters can be used to restore moisture to dry and damaged hair. When used, we recommend washing body butter out of your hair with warm water and a small amount of mild shampoo, for softer and shinier hair.
4) OUR BODY BUTTERS CAN BE MULTI-PURPOSED AS A MAKE-UP REMOVER
Using body butter as a make-up remover offers you two benefits in one. Simply apply a small amount to a cotton ball or makeup remover pad and gently wipe your face, making sure to apply enough pressure to take off your makeup. It can even remove waterproof mascara (just be sure not to get it into your eye). We recommend using a gentle face cleanser after using body butter as a make-up remover.
5) OUR BODY BUTTERS ARE KIND TO YOUR LIPS
It is no wonder that with the abundance of vitamins, fatty acids, and moisturizing capabilities, body butters care for your lips too. By adding our body butter to your lips during your daily moisturizing routine, you can keep your lips moisturized throughout the day, especially during the dry or colder months.
6) OUR BODY BUTTERS CAN BE ADDED TO YOUR BED TIME ROUTINE
If you like to end your day with a warm bath or shower, moisturizing with a body butter while skin is still damp allows for faster absorption.
Our Lavender Love body butter is a client favourite for any bed time routine because of the aromatherapy benefits it offers. The scent of Lavender activates signals in the brain and nervous system that help reduce agitation, restlessness, and aggression. For an even better soothing bed time ritual, use our Lavender Love body butter as a foot cream. Essential oils absorb faster when applied to feet than other parts of your skin.
If you knew this about body butters then you know you need some as the air gets dryer and the days are colder. If some or all of this was news to you, then you also need some body butter.
