It’s not always just your face that needs a winter regimen update and sometimes a body boost from natural body butters and oils is required. In the colder months, it’s ideal to switch to a more nourishing skincare routine for the body too. For example, after exfoliating the skin with a body brush pre-shower (get the guide on body brushing here), you could layer natural body butters on top of oil for extra hydration.
Our Fave Natural Body Butters & Oils
NUORI Vital Body Balm
Don’t like lotions that feel too thick on your skin? Try this one. It’s very easily absorbed and leaves skin soft thanks to a blend of avocado oil, shea butter and olive oil-derived glycerin. We’re huge fans of this range, as all the ingredients are freshly blended in small batches every 12 weeks to ensure peak efficacy. Apply generously after a bath or shower to feed your skin with vitamin E and grape seed-derived antioxidants. You’ll end up smelling pretty amazing too!

This nourishing vegan body butter leaves skin smooth, soft and fragranced with exotic natural hibiscus.
