If you’re like me, regular lotion just doesn’t cut it. I can lather myself in lotion, and by the time I hit the wind, dry patches are peeking through; which is why I prefer to use body butter. With a thicker texture and hydrating properties, the best body butters create a barrier on your skin while penetrating deep layers of tissues to provide moisture. With the season changing and colder temperatures ushering in, your skin needs as much help as it can get to combat the drying effect of the bitter cold and other harsh environmental factors.

The best body butters are rich in nutrients with healing properties, making it like an elixir for your skin to drink. Quenching the thirst of your body’s biggest organ is also a form of self-care. It promotes circulation and can combat an array of skin conditions like stretch marks, cellulite, wrinkles, creases, crow’s feet, necklines, and other signs of aging, according to Netmeds.

The act of massaging your skin can increase circulation and improve your quality of sleep. In addition to the health and moisturizing benefits of body butter, the luscious concoction will also leave your skin smelling fragrant all day.

Keep scrolling for five of the best body butters that will leave you feeling smooth and smelling good.
