Beauty Scoop: Best Skin Butters and Moisturizers

I am a Body Shop junkie when it comes to their body butters and body oils! I've tried dozens of brands over the years, but this is the brand I always come back too. Also, it's really hard to resist their deals. If you're subscribed to their email list, then you know they send out really good coupons every couple of weeks.

I have a question for you: Do you suffer from dry skin? Well, this might just be the solution for you!

The first thing you want to do is purchase a body oil to put in your shower. I love the scents of The Body Shop's "beautifying oils". Over the last couple of months, I used the "Moringa" oil.  The scents are faint, but pleasant, and I like that they are not over powering. You can also pick up Neutrogena's Sesasme Body Oil from your local drugstore (it's a lot cheaper per oz). 

The Scoop: Once you are finished showering, but before you towel off, apply the body oil all over (except your face) and then lightly pat yourself dry with a towel.

After about ten minutes, when your skin is air dried, you can apply your favorite lotion or body butter to your extra dry areas (elbows, knees, ankles, etc.) or all over if you feel you need it. After following this routine for a few days, you should notice your skin become softer and look more supple. I personally like to use body butters because I like their consistency. I've recently been using the Vitamin E body butter from The Body Shop.
