Dry skin is a huge problem for millions of people around the world. If you’ve ever suffered from it, you know it’s a constant battle. There are no magical creams and lotions that might cure the condition quickly, and even natural ointments don’t work sometimes, not to mention their sky-high price.
Dry skin is a constant problem – it will make you uncomfortable no matter the season. It can be a challenge to resolve it, but luckily for you, there’s a powerful homemade recipe which can help. The body butter is made with coconut oil and orange juice, powerful ingredients for our skin which will hydrate it and provide it with various essential vitamins and minerals.
Coconut oil is a cheap natural remedy for your skin. Applying it on your skin every day will keep it hydrated and nourished, and it works better than any store-bought skin care product. On the other hand, orange essential oil is full of vitamin C and antioxidants which can keep your skin in perfect shape and nourish it.
Here’s how to prepare the citrus body butter:
- A cup coconut oil
- 4-5 drops orange essential oil
- 4-5 drops lemon essential oil
- Lemon peel
- Lime peel
- Orange peel
Melt the coconut oil in a pan for about 20 seconds, then whisk it in a bowl and add the citrus peels. Mix well before stirring in the essential oils, then whisk until you get a homogenous mixture. Pour the melted butter in a plastic container and leave it to harden in a fridge. Once it’s solid, mix it in a blender until you get a fluffy mixture. Keep the body butter in a plastic container at room temperature.
For best results, apply the body butter on your skin after a shower or before going to bed. It will keep your skin hydrated and nourished, and will help you get rid of dry skin forever.
