We tend to focus a lot on your face. We want you to have glowing skin and healthy, white teeth. But we can’t forget that the skin is the body’s largest organ. It covers about 22 square feet — nearly the size of a standard doorway!
So how can you make sure your body’s skin is getting the nutrients it needs? You can’t slather your expensive face creams across that entire surface! Our #1 answer is body butter.
Body butters are meant to help soothe your skin and make it soft, supple and beautiful. You don’t want to use just any body butter or lotion. Commercial brands will mostly be made of water. And the rest of the ingredients could be toxic when used for long periods of time — especially when they’re covering such a large surface area.
You’ll want to use a body butter made with all-natural ingredients. The label should be easy to read. It might even sound like a list of foods and flowers.
All-natural products have more benefits to offer. Apart from being safe for your body, they also tend to nourish your skin. This works wonders in identifying problem areas. Here are a few more reasons why you should think about using all-natural body butters.
Better Retention of Moisture
Moisture retention is enhanced with the help of all-natural body butters. The body butter creates a protective layer that nourishes and rehydrates your skin. It also prevents your pores from clogging. Body butters crafted with all-natural beeswax are proven to be better at retaining moisture. No dry skin for you!
With better moisture retention, your skin will stay soft and supple. It will be less prone to drying out and cracking. Well-nourished skin won’t break out as much.
Body butters infused with aloe, lavender and vitamin C will have added healing properties. That means cuts and scrapes can heal faster with less long-lasting damage.
Decreased Chances of Wrinkles
Dry skin is inherently connected to wrinkles. Lack of moisture keeps the skin tight, so it wrinkles more easily. For this reason, using body butters helps keep your skin supple and smooth. Keep in mind that wrinkles don’t appear solely on your face. Your neck and other areas are just as vulnerable. A good body butter will keep your entire skin surface nourished and moisturized. As the years pass, you’ll stay looking young.
Healthy skin is radiant skin. Eating well, drinking plenty of water and getting enough sleep all play a factor in your skin’s appearance. But staying healthy on the outside is important too. Body butters made with all-natural ingredients will feed your body from the outside in. Your body will soak up all the yummy nutrition from ingredients such as shea butter, beeswax, avocado oil, coconut oil and essential oils.
Your skin will have better tone and texture and a natural glow. Regularly using body butters will maintain your goddess-like appearance.
