Making your own Body Butter is so simple and such an easy process. These Body Butters also make amazing gifts for all occasions. The process is simple and pretty straight forward.

Add your coconut oil and shea butter into a small saucepan over medium heat. Allow the oils to melt together over the heat. Remove the saucepan from the heat and place in the fridge for 20 minutes. Remove from the fridge and you’ll notice a thick white surface, this means it’s ready to be mixed up.

Summer time is definitely one of my favorite seasons but the sun really takes a toll out on our skin on a day to day basis. Being outside dries out your skin so quickly and it’s so important to keep yourself protected by using Sunscreen. Another thing I recommend is using my DIY body butter for a luxurious moisturizing agent that can be used morning and night. Keeping your skin hydrated is so important to maintain your beautiful skin. Plus by keeping your skin hydrated you’re less likely to burn and more likely to tan.

3 Most Important Skin Beauty Summer Tips:

  • Drink lots of water to keep yourself hydrated
  • Wear Sunscreen and be sure to reapply throughout the day
  • Every morning and Night apply lots of Body Butter to keep your skin smooth
