How Do You Use a Lotion Bar?
Over the last few years I have fallen in love with the lotion bar. I saw one for the first time on YouTube.
As a matter of fact, there are many tutorials on how to make your own lotion bar. Unfortunately, many of those posts and videos never get into the details of, how do you use a lotion bar.
I know. It’s not rocket science. Still the benefits of using an organically made lotion bar for your skin far surpasses the synthetic creams in a bottle. That is my opinion of it anyway. 😉
Lotion bar ingredients can include any combination of butters and oils. For my Coconut Beauty Lotion Bars, I love to use Shea and cocoa butters. They are also made with organic unrefined oils like coconut, avocado, grapeseed, and rose hip.
A lotion bar can be made in various shapes and sizes. I personally am a fan of a smaller round bar. A larger lotion bar that may resemble a bar of soap is wonderful for easy application to your total body.
How do you use a lotion bar?
The easiest way is to simply take the bar in your hand and rub it up and down against your skin. You can do this for your total body. Your body heat will allow the solid lotion to slowly melt into your skin.
For your hands, you can massage the bar into the palm and back of your hands. Again, your body heat will melt the outer layer of the bar into your skin. Then set the bar aside and rub your hands together.
You can use a lotion bar to moisturize the driest areas of your body. Give your feet, knees, and elbows extra care by focusing your lotion bar in those areas. This may be the season to change from sandals to boots, but preventing dry cracked heels all year long is a must.
When using a Coconut Beauty lotion bar, you will notice softer skin that is moisturized from the inside out. This is because we use natural ingredients that penetrate the skin.
A lotion bar can also be used to moisturize your cuticles. Gently massage a lotion bar along your nails. Lotion bars made with coconut oil can help make your nails stronger and keep your cuticles soft.
Lotion bars are also perfect for traveling. They are handy, compact, and easy to pack. Even a smaller lotion bar can be used from head to toe, and it takes ups little space in a shower or make up bag.
If making your own lotions, you can use a variety of essential oils to create your own favorite fragrance. You can keep it natural without compromise.
