The best time is after your daily shower or bath when your skin is still moist. Apply a bit of butter using broad massaging strokes. – Be careful not to use too much or your skin could get greasy.

Revitalize your hair!

A natural body butter can be also used for dry and stressed hair. Take a small amount of the butter let it melt from the warmth of your hand before applying to the tip of your hair. Just wash it with warm water, dry it and enjoy silky and fragrant hair.

Remove a sticky make-up

Apply a tiny bit of body butter to a moisten cotton pad and enjoy how easy it is to dissolve the day’s makeup from your skin. It can even remove waterproof mascara but avoid getting it in your eye.

Keep a small pot of it in your bag, in the drawer at work and even in the bedside cabinet you can reach it easily any time to sooth your skin. Tip: It is worth applying a second layer on problem areas.

Soothing hand cream

Anyone with green fingers knows how your hands feels after a couple of hours of gardening. Using a rich body butter after thoroughly washing the dirt off your hands is a wonderful feeling. Imagine soft digits instead of cracked knuckles and dry palms.

The ultimate cuticle saver

You don’t necessarily need an extra product for your cuticles. You can have instant results with using natural body butter as well. Simply massage a tiny amount into each cuticle and admire your newly scented and hydrated fingertips.
