To have a glowing, wrinkle free and a healthy skin, constant moisturizing should be a part of your daily skin care routine. We are always told to pamper our skin with a good moisturizer day and night but most of times forget to indulge this luxury to our body.
Your body also needs to be regularly hydrated as it keeps wrinkles and skin dullness at bay.
Dry skin is more prone to skin infections but you should also be aware that a little too much moisture can lead to skin clogging and that dreadful acne which we all hate. So “do it, but don’t over do it”.
In pursuit of a happy skin, your number one ally and best friend is a good moisturizer which is available in the form of body butter or a lotion. Body butter is much thicker than a body lotion and is perfect if you are looking to treat your skin with some full of zip moisture treatment.
Shopping for a good body butter can also be a tug of war!
The attractive bottles, delicious fragrances and the lovely textures can easily manipulate you when you are out moisturizer – shopping.

The key ingredient, Japanese Cherry Blossom is known for its soothing and healing properties and the lovely exotic fragrance. This body butter has hints of cheery blossom extracts, blended with organic soya oil and Italian olive oil and mingled with Glycerin as an active hydrating agent. This concoction is just wonderful to restore the skin’s moisture barrier and nourishes it to softness in no time.
Soya oil has rich fatty acids which can do wonders if you are looking for intensive skin care treatment.
The mixture of these oils easily get absorbed with other natural skin oils making your skin look shinny and feel soft.
When to use / Why to
Recommended greatly for people with normal skin, this is a must have moisturizer especially formulated to combat all kinds of harsh winter weather. If you feel that your skin is tired or has dry patches then give this a try and you will instantly notice results. Perfect to use any time of day or night and easily applicable and does not have an oily after effect. Use it once or twice a day preferably after a shower or before going to bed.
A useful tip on moisturizer application is to apply it on damp skin. Dry skin doesn’t absorb it effectively. Your damp skin traps water on the skin surface cells making the moisture effect last longer and giving your skin a shinny look.
How to Use / Apply in steps
Before applying the body butter, splash your body with some water. The skin only needs to be damp not wet !!! If you don’t feel like using water, a hydrating tonner is an excellent substitute.
Take a generous scoop of the body butter and spread across your body.
Blend it in circular motions so that it is evenly spread and absorbed. You will instantly feel the difference with a beaming skin.
