Seasonal Skin Wonders

You butter watch out, you butter not cry, butter not pout, I'm telling you why, holiday Posh is coming to town!

Winter skin is #theworst. What’s a girl to do when holiday parties roll around and her skin is looking and feeling overly dry? I mean, it’s called a little black dress for a reason! You can’t wear something little and black if you’re legs look dry and wack.

While spending the season fully covered in a faux fur-lined cape or long, puffy coat isn’t exactly a terrible idea, there’s a better (and less expensive) solution. Butter your body. Shea, mango, and cocoa butters are some of the very best things you can put on your skin to keep it soft all winter long, plus they’re featured in some of our Holiday Posh products here.

Shea Butter

Moisturizing shea butter contains vitamin A, which can help promote younger looking, supple skin—and who doesn’t want that? Aside from helping to hydrate and condition skin, shea butter is also beneficial for lips. It helps smooth and moisturize to soothe against the elements, like cold winter air.

You’ll find shea butter in our Nice Ice™ Glittery Skin Stick for the holidays. It adds a little sparkle wherever you want to up your holiday glam look.

 

Mango Butter

Lightweight mango butter contains even higher levels of essential fatty acids than shea and cocoa butters, and is an especially good option for moisturizing sensitive skin. It can even help reduce the appearance of dark spots for a brighter, more even looking complexion.

You’ll find this beneficial butter in our Holly Jolly Chunk bath bar. It softens and soothes dry skin in the shower and bath with the happy holiday fragrance of pomegranate and citrus.

 

Cocoa Butter

Rich cocoa butter contains one of the highest concentrations of antioxidants and also functions as a humectant, drawing moisture to the skin's surface. (Plus, it’s used to make chocolate—talk about decadent!)

 

Get Seasonably Soft and Supple Skin

To get positively glowing winter skin, follow these 3 simple steps:

  1. Start by exfoliating. Butters sink in better when they don’t have to battle with layers and layers of dry skin, so it’s important to give skin a gentle scrub.

    Look for a moisturizing exfoliator to get 2 benefits in one. For face, we like Pearlfectionist™ Exfoliating Face Mask with pearl powder and cocoa butter. Neck to toes, try Sweet Breeze Snarky™ with sugar and shea.

  2. Apply your butters fresh out of the tub or shower; they sink in better when skin is damp.

  3. Be sure to keep some butter or a Big Fat Yummy Hand Crème in your bag, your car, or on your desk to replenish skin, because dry winter air (and forced air from your heater) battle your skin’s moisture levels all day long.

    Skin Sticks™ and lip balms are great ways to keep skin moisturized on the go. And don’t forget to bundle up! A scarf and gloves can go a long way when it comes to blocking out the winter chill.

Save your skin from winter’s worst and turn it into a winter wonder with nourishing butters. But don’t wait until you want to cry and pout. The sooner you start with a butter routine, the better your skin will look and feel!
