There is an art to lotioning that many people (including me!) do not know. While I tend to lotion right out of the shower when my skin is damp, I didn’t realize that that’s actually the way you should ALWAYS do it — on damp skin. 

Shari Marchbein, a NY dermatologist, believes moisturizer should be applied within 60 seconds of cleansing to trap hydration. As she said in a recent New York Times article;

If you frost a dry cake, the cake is still dry. If you frost a moist cake, it stays moist.” 

I’m lowkey embarrassed it took me 34 years to learn this. So I’m passing on the good word. 

What about moisturizing during the day? I discussed this with an esthetician friend of mine and she recommends carrying a small body mist (or even just a spritz bottle of water!) to apply moisture to dry areas before lotioning.

Here are a few customers who figured this out way before I did…

I love the way I feel, smell, and look after I slather it on straight outta the shower to lock in that precious moisture lol. This is my go-to and I’m glowing every time I use it.” — Ashley on Vanilla Whipped Shea Butter

Amazing products!!! I use the butters every time I get out of the shower.” — Sabriya on Whipped Butters Sample Pack

Best stuff ever to grace my skin!! I love how this whipped butter is not heavy and melts directly into my skin after a hot shower. It keeps my skin hydrated all day.” — Kenya on Mango Shea Blended Butter

Would you start selling essential oils like lavender, jojoba and rosemary?

I loved your 3 year hair growth pictures on Pinterest. Is it your products that you used to grow your hair so pretty and long?

I love the African soap and I love buying your Raw Shea Butter and Raw Mango Butter and you Raw Coco butters. I use them in my products that I make. I know that I can trust the products that I receive from you. You have some of the best products.
