Tips to Relieve Dry Skin with Body Butters, Creams & Lotions

Body Butters offer Maximum Benefits to Dry Skin

A body butter cream is the “go to” product for alleviating dry skin when a moisturizing lotion is not enough. Skin cells constantly lose moisture, leaving skin feeling dry, and sometimes even itchy. Dry heat in our homes during the winter months, as well as the removal of natural body oils through frequent washing, are the main causes of dry skin.

Body lotions contain two basic ingredients: oil and water. They go on smoothly, absorb quickly, and in general leave no greasy residue. Lotions are usually enough, if added moisture is all that is required. Butters get their oil from nuts and seeds, such as shea nuts, cocoa nuts, mangoes and kukui nuts, making them thicker and better able to saturate the skin, providing longer-lasting moisture to heal dry, damaged skin. Beeswax is added to many butter-based creams to make them longer lasting, but it also makes them a little harder to absorb leaving a slight film on the surface of the skin. The waxless and bar-types of butter are more easily absorbed.

H20+ Spa Sea Marine Cream is an intensive, triple-butter moisture cream containing butter made from shea, cocoa and mango nuts. In addition to delivering replenishing moisture to soothe and protect the skin, the anti-aging marine botanicals add the extra benefit of a youthful appearance.

Korres Yoghurt Butter Cream provides optimum hydration for elbows, heels and knees, which often suffer the most when it comes to dryness. The proteins and anti-inflammatory properties found in yogurt, coupled with shea butter, soothe irritated skin, while nourishing and replenishing at the same time.

For a lighter feel than cream, there are lotions containing shea butter that give your skin the same vitamin A and vitamin E benefits as creams. Bliss offers just such a body butter lotion, formulated with shea butter. This fast-absorbing fluid formula still contains the antioxidant vitamins found in the shea nut for long-lasting conditioning results.

Be sure to keep a butter-based cream handy for the times your skin needs a little more healing and conditioning than a body lotion can provide.

I really like Moonlight Path, and I found the body butter to be one of its best products! It goes on easily, moisturizes very well, and easily lasts all day. If you like Moonlight Path be sure to get this while it's still available! (see my review on the body mist/spray if you want to know more about the actual scent).

Comments about Bliss Lemon + Sage Body Butter Maximum Moisture Cream, 200ml/6.7oz:
the scent of lemon always smells so clean and crisp- and this lotion really delivered, I hadn't used much of the bliss products until it was gifted to me in a basket over the holidays and now I will definitely be a repeat buyer

Comments about Bliss Lemon + Sage Body Butter Maximum Moisture Cream, 200ml/6.7oz:
having tried the blood orange products by this same line, I decided to try the lemon as well, and have been equally as pleased, the scent is great and light. I love the scent of lemon, especially in the warmer months, and tend to gravitate towards citrus flavors during that time of year. this is an excellent addition to the lotion rotation for those hot days

I love the scent of blood orange, and have fallen in love with this line from bliss products, it is pricier but leaves skin smooth and the scent is amazing. its long lasting, much longer lasting than many other body butters out there.
