Body Butter vs. Body Lotion

Body Butter vs. Body Lotion – what is the difference?  If you are wondering which product is right for your skin, San Rafael CA top day spa Jessa Skin can help!

Dry skin occurs when the skin loses its oily lipid layer which protects it from moisture loss. Some of the common ways for this to happen is repeated hand washing, windy conditions or dry heat (such as home furnaces). With cooler temperatures here, the wind will be picking up and the heat will be going on more often.  It’s important to protect your skin to prevent it from cracking and becoming irritated. The best way to protect the skin on your hands and body is to invest in high-quality, all-natural body lotion or butter to keep your skin continually moisturized.

So, which moisturizer should you use?

Body lotion is composed of both water and oil providing a smooth application and a lighter feel.  Lotion can be easily applied and absorbed by the skin.  Body lotion is designed to be light enough to wear every day and is recommended for all skin types.  It is advised to apply to a cleansed or scrubbed dry body at least once a day for best results. Use a nickel to quarter size amount on each area; just enough to let it soak in.

Jessa Skin offers two all-natural, organic, family friendly lotions available in 1/4 trial size for $4, 1 oz travel size for $9, 6 oz for $14 and 16 oz family size for $44:

Fresh Cucumber Body Lotion – Active ingredients of aloe, cucumber water, coconut oil, jojoba, witch hazel, vitamin E.  Fresh smelling and luxurious feel!

Lavender-licious Body Lotion – Active ingredients of aloe, lavender water, coconut oil, jojoba, witch hazel, vitamin E.  Surround yourself with the smell of pure lavender.

Body Butter steps moisturizing up a notch! It is the ultimate moisture necessary for hydrating extremely dry skin.  Thanks to including Shea butter in the ingredients, body butters are thicker than lotions, go on a bit heavier and take a little extra time to soak in.  Body butters are necessary for people who suffer with extreme dry skin, cracked, rough or chafed skin.  With the added boost of Vitamin E and B5, Jessa Skin body butters provide healing to elbows, knees, dry hands and more.  We recommend you use a nickel size amount on each body part and apply once a day for best results.  For extreme dryness, you may need to apply multiple times a day until desired results are achieved.
