When you suffer from a skin problem, it can be hard to find beauty products that don’t aggravate it even further. There are all kinds of lotions and potions out there that claim to work well with sensitive skin but what happens when you want to keep it natural? Well, natural products are actually the best thing to opt for when shopping for problem skin, as there’s no nasty chemicals or synthetic ingredients present. Organic body butters are great for those who want to moisturise without irritating their skin, so we’ve cherry picked five of the best.
Cocoa butter is one that most of us are already familiar with. Used by those who want to prevent or get rid of stretch marks, it’s also got some other uses. It’s a natural emollient, meaning that it’s a super moisturiser. It’s so good, in fact, those who suffer from eczema and psoriasis often use it to ease their symptoms and get rid of dry, cracked skin.
We like to eat them, but mangoes are actually pretty good to put on our skin too! Mango butter is jam packed with antioxidants and is great for sun worshippers as when used alongside sunscreen, it protects the skin from UV radiation. It’s suitable to use on very dry skin and it has a beautiful natural scent, perfect for those who have to avoid heavily perfumed products but still want to smell lovely.
Shea butter is another miracle worker. It’s absolutely full of vitamins, including A, D, F and particularly E. It has a range of uses, from treating burns and insect bites to being gentle enough to treat your baby’s nappy rash. If it’s gentle enough for your little one, it’s certainly going to be gentle enough for your skin too, making it an essential product for the whole family. It’s not suitable for those with severe nut allergies though, so check the label before you buy!
Lavender body butters are suitable for most skin types, from dry to blemish prone. As well as being a great treatment for acne and an effective insect repellent, another benefit of lavender comes from its scent. Not only does it leave you smelling gorgeous but it’s great for relaxation too. Lavender has long been used in aromatherapy to soothe and relieve anxiety, so it’s great for those who are prone to stress breakouts.
The last body butter on our list is coconut. While we may be fonder of it when it’s in a pina colada, it’s got plenty of benefits for your skin too. Many experts believe that it’s the best body butter out there, with its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, along with its amazing wrinkle busting properties. So if you’re looking to ward off those signs of ageing, coconut butter could be for you.
Beautiful skin could soon be yours
You may want to use a body butter to soothe your skin during the harsh winter months, or to ease any sun damage during the warmer parts of the year. Whenever and wherever you use it, an all-natural body butter means that no matter how difficult you’ve found shopping for your skin, you can now reap the benefits with complete peace of mind all year round.
