How to Choose the Best Post-Shower Body Butter For U
Moisturizing post-shower is essential for driving out dryness and locking in hydration.
The best time apply body lotion? On damp skin. After showering, towel dry your wet skin only slightly so it's still damp and your moisturizer will sink in nicely, delivering hydrated skin for the rest of the day.
Rich and nourishing, body butters outdo body creams when it comes to hydrating and softening the skin. That's because butter has a thicker texture and is formulated with a high percentage of oils and butters like coconut oil and cocoa butter, which lock in moisture. They're ideal for dry skin.
Body butters come with different price tags, ingredients, and scents. To help you select the best body butter for your budget, preference, and skin type, we've selected our top five favorite body butters that we know you'll love!

HOW TO BEST USE BODY BUTTER?
According to dermatologists, the best time to apply body butter is straight after bathing or showering, as this is when your skin is at its driest and soaks up the most moisture.
To optimize the effects of your body butter, start by using a gentle body wash that won't strip your skin of its natural body oils. Look for ingredients like argan oil, hyaluronic acid, jojoba seed oil, and glycerin.
After stepping out of the tub or shower cubicle, pat your skin dry ever so slightly so that it's still a little bit damp. Then apply a generous amount of body butter from neck downwards.
If you shower in the day time, remember to follow up with a sunscreen (SPF 30) to protect your skin from UV rays and prevent dryness.
For best results, use your body butter daily - after every shower.
