The cold, dry climate during Fall can dehydrate the skin severely. We urge you to try this body butter DIY to replace all that is lost. Borage oil has been one of the trendiest skincare ingredients this year, which is why we’re using it as the base of our hydrating solution. The oil is anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, inherently has salicylic acid (potent acne fix), and will restore the suppleness by improving the elasticity of your skin.
To whip up the perfect nourishing body butter for dry skin, follow this beauty recipe:
- 100g shea butter
- 50ml jojoba oil
- 50ml borage oil
- 10 drops sea buckthorn oil
Warm up the shea butter enough so that it can be whipped to a thick pulp. Add it to a double boiler with the rest of the ingredients. Stir and once all the ingredients melt and blend, get the solution off the heat. Let it cool and then place it in the fridge for 20-45 minutes, but beat or whisk it once more, before it sets. It will make the body butter creamy and not like a balm. Apply it within 10 minutes of having a shower.
