Video Blog: Can I use a Body Butter Bar on My Face?
While Body Butter Bars have exceptional ingredients, they may not be your best option for using on your face. Here are a few questions that may help you to determine if using a Body Butter Bar on your face is a good option for you:
Do you have challenges with Acne?
Skin that is troubled by acne experiences clogged pores from dead skin cells and oil build up from the skin. Common troubles are whiteheads, pimples, oily skin, and possible scarring. It is the most common skin condition in the United States that affects up to 50 million Americans each year.
Does your skin tend to carry a sheen or oily finish throughout the day?
Facial skin has pores that connect with oil glands underneath the skin. Connected to the pores are follicles that are tiny sacs producing and secreting liquid. If you’re finding that by mid-day you need to apply powder to combat the oil build-up on your face, a Body Butter Bar is not the way you want to go when selecting a moisturizer.
If you silently (or verbally) said “yes!” to one or both of the above questions, our Indulge Pure Originals Body Butter Bars would not be ideal for you to use on your face. Instead, opt for a light moisturizer with less butters and oils such as our Indulge Pure Originals Hand & Body Lotion. The Hand & Body Lotions are lightweight, non-pore-clogging, and perfect for full body use (including the skin on your face!). Plus, they come in a variety of scents to suit your preference!
Body Butter Bars offer a comprehensive mix of skin soothing ingredients including Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Soy, and Sweet Almond Oil. We perfected the formula for our Body Butter Bars that truly helps deliver exceptional results in as few ingredients as possible.
Cocoa Butter really works hard to repair dry skin and help prevent future skin dryness with its naturally occurring antioxidants. Cocoa Butter is naturally anti-aging which is perfect for fresh young skin as well as mature skin! It’s creamy which, when used in the shower, or held under warm, running water at your sink, the butter begins to melt and calm dry skin immediately.
Shea Butter, is chock full of Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Stearic, and Oleic Acids which supports fighting those wrinkles, stretch-marks, and rashes from skin irritation.
A great way to pamper your skin with a Butter Bar. Body Butter Bar is to cleanse your skin with your favorite facial cleanser, rinse, and then apply your Body Butter Bar. Body Butter Bars are heat-activated when held under warm, running water. Once warmed, glide the bar over the palms of your hands and apply the Body Butter to your face. A little will go a very long way so be sure not to melt too much of the bar in your hands. It will leave a glorious layer of protection from the Cocoa and Shea Butters on your skin. Pat your face dry, removing any water droplets that may have remained from application.
This ritual is best for use at night, right before bed. It acts as a nightly serum that will repair your skin while you sleep. Wake up refreshed and hydrated!
