Let's face it. We all want soft skin, and there are places where our bodies gets lots of wear and tear, like hands, lips, and heels, that always seem to need a little pampering.
So what's the secret? Keeping them moist. Sounds simple right? It is! The secret is to moisten your skin before applying balms and salves. These products generally don't have water in them like lotions do. To lock in moisture, there must be moisture on your skin. So apply these products after showering or washing your hands while your skin is still damp. You will notice the difference!
For the best protection, look for natural oils and waxes like shea butter, mango butter, olive oil, sunflower oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter, and beeswax. Butters and oils differ in their melting points. Some are solid at room temperature, like beeswax and Shea butter. Others are liquid, like olive oil. The ingredients that are solid at room temperature will soften on warm skin, leaving it smooth and protected.
