Does your skin get super dry when it’s cold? If it does, you are not alone. The reason is simple: skin gets depleted of moisture from low humidity levels due to cold outdoor air and indoor heating. If cold winter temperatures are making your skin flaky, scaly, itchy, and dry and lotion just doesn't cut it, a rich body butter might be just what you need! Let's dig in to learn what it is and how it can help.
What is body butter?
A body butter is a thick cream that is made only of naturally derived butters. Body butter is thicker than lotion which makes it most suitable to use during cold months on dry skin to give it ultimate moisture to help repair the flakes and protect it from the lack of humidity in the air.
LoveMeli's C.R.E.A.M. Whipped Body Butter
LoveMeli has a seasonal body body launch every Fall lasting up until the weather starts to warm up. The ultra rich combination of Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Mango Butter provide saturated fats that prevent peeling, fight skin degeneration, and can help reduce the appearance of stretch marks. The further addition of Oat Butter, Jojoba Butter, Apricot Kernel Oil, Coconut Oil help create a smooth butter like texture that whips into an airy cream. Arrowroot Powder cuts the oily texture during application.
Nothing was spared in the creation of this body butter. It is heavy duty and intense, because dry skin needs it during the winter. It is always best to make the swap from lotion to body butter when your local temperature is cold or you see and feel that your skin is dryer than normal.
C.R.E.A.M. Whipped Body Butter comes in three scents:
We offer an Unscented C.R.E.A.M. Whipped Body Butter for those that like the natural smell of the body butter (notes of chocolate come through from the Cocoa Butter), and also for those that want to steer clear of any type of essential oil and plant based fragrance. This is a safe option for the whole family.
Our classic Uplifting Citrus scent is a wonderful combination of plant based Grapefruit fragrance produced using pure essential oils including Grapefruit (Citrus grandis), Bergamot (Citrus Aaurantium bergamia) and Davana (Artemisia pallens) - making it a light fresh fruity scent!
The Calm scent is made with essential oils of Pink Grapefruit, Blood Orange, Bergamot, Patchouli, & Ylang-Ylang. Definitely one that makes you want to keep smelling it to figure out what it's made of - because it's not Lavender.
If you are new to body butter or are just planning on using it to spot treat certain areas, LoveMeli offers a sampler with three scents. Snag that up when you can because it is limited edition!
While you are moisturizing, don't forget to EXFOLIATE. It's NOT a waste of time to exfoliate when you aren't showing much skin. You have to keep proper cell turnover to prevent dead skin accumulation. It helps the body butter work best and keeps your skin looking it's healthiest. They work hand in hand. Shop #ThatScrubTho Body Scrubs to keep dead skin away while you use C.R.E.A.M. Whipped Body Butter.
