Body Butters for the Colder Weather


OK I am aware that the weather has improved somewhat and got a lot milder but it is not Spring yet and it does get very nippy in the evenings. So this when we put our body moisturisers to the test. A lotion that worked the other three seasons may not be hydrating enough when it comes to the cold and windy periods. If you’re finding that yours isn’t measuring up, a body butter can be a brilliant alternative. Body butters are supremely rich and creamy and they will help keep scaly skin at bay. Clinique Deep Comfort Body Butter When our skin is dry, it can be downright uncomfortable. This intensely nourishing formula boosts hydration so your skin will go from scaly to smooth. That’s not all. It also helps fight free racial damage.
