Smooth skin is my number one beauty-must. It's one of the roots to good skincare. Skin that is as soft as a baby's bottom means that it is properly hydrated, elongating elasticity. My recent foot into the world of beauty editing has opened my eyes to multiple ways one can moisturize their skin. Between lotions, creams and now butters, I've got my hands full. I'm currently in love with my Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream (I use it every morning), but I'm also interested in body butters.
I was able to get my hands on Nubian Heritage's Mango Butter that's infused with shea oil and Vitamin C. My problem is that when I open the jar, the butter is rock solid! How am I suppose to use it? I was able to scrape some up by digging my nails into the top layer of the mango butter. I rubbed some one my hand. I noticed that the butter sat on my skin for a while, until it was fully absorbed. After it was absorbed, my skin felt super soft for quite some time. I love it!
WHAT IS BODY BUTTER?
According to this eHow video, body butter is just like lotion without the water. Normal lotions are 70 to 90 percent water. With body butter, you're getting all the oils with no preservatives and it doesn't wash off as easily as lotion or cream. Perfect use for hands if they are constantly in and out of water.
But anyway, I need help. I don't want to have to continue to pound my nail into the mango butter. Do I need to literally use a knife and spread my hands with the butter like I'm an English muffin? I hope not. Although, that would make for an interesting morning routine addition.
