If your skin becomes Sahara desert-like during winter, then you need more than just a body lotion to moisturise it. Under such circumstances, body butter comes in handy. The consistency of body butter is much thicker, richer and concentrated, which goes deep inside the layers of your skin to nourish and moisturise it.
A good body butter can easily help your skin heal and rejuvenate. And while you can definitely buy one from the market, nothing beats the 100% natural and homemade one! It is not only free of chemicals but it also ensures there’s no contamination.
All you need is:
1 cup shea/cocoa butter
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup almond oil
Essential oils of your choice (optional)
Shea/cocoa butter can be easily found in online stores, and is not even that expensive. Both cocoa and shea butter are known for their moisturising properties. They are also believed to improve the skin’s appearance over time, so investing in these two can go a long way!
Almond and coconut oil make for excellent moisturisers for your skin, and have antibacterial properties. And with a smell so nice, it’s a great addition to your body butter.
Since we are not adding any artificial fragrances, adding essential oils can serve the purpose. Not only will it give a fresh aroma to your body butter, but it will also benefit your skin depending on what essential oils you are choosing.
Go ahead and try this body butter this winter, to give your skin what it needs!
