Why do we need to hydrate our skin?

Skin is the largest organ and has the main function of acting as a barrier to protect the internal body. It’s important to provide this unique organ with as many nutrients as possible to build a stronger and healthier barrier. Lotions and butters help to provide beneficial hydration and nourishment to promote vigorous, vibrant, healthy skin.

BODY BUTTER VS. LOTION


Body Butter versus Body Lotion
BODY BUTTER

Body Butters tend to be heavier and more emollient and have a more luxurious feel as opposed to lotions. When moisturizers contain lubricating ingredients such as shea butter and natural oils, they coat the skin to create a barrier between the skin’s surface an outside elements. The barrier seals in moisture as well as protects the skin from environmental impurities.

LOTION

Lotions are normally lighter in consistency, have lower oil content and accommodate all skin types. A great benefit of lotion is that it can preserve moisture already in the skin!

MOISTURIZING TO HYDRATE

Moisturizing skin is the fastest remedy to hydrate and promptly mend the look and feel of dry, dehydrated skin. When skin is well-hydrated, it is more refreshed, plump and resilient. Balanced and nourished skin helps to diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles for a youthful and healthy skin.

EXFOLIATION BEFORE HYDRATION

For maximum moisturizing benefits, always prepare skin for hydration by first exfoliating dry, dead cells away that create a penetration barrier for lotions and butters.
