Ask an Esti - How to Use Dream Body Butter for a Glowing Complexion this Summer

26 Jun 2024
Hey friend! Welcome back to “Ask an Esti” - a forum where we discuss all things skincare! It’s officially summertime!! If the weather is anything like Houston, Texas where you live, then I know it has been HOT and may only be getting hotter. 🥹But even through the heat, we must keep taking care of our skin, especially the skin on our body. Did you know that sweating dehydrates the skin? It’s crucial to replenish with moisture and hydration this summer to keep your barrier strong and healthy. One of my favorite products in my body care rotation is currently the new Hydrate + Glow Dream Body Butter. If you’ve tried it, I’m sure you can attest to how luxurious and hydrating it feels on the skin, but I have a few tips to help you achieve an even more beautiful glow this summer.

Hydrate + Glow Dream Body Butter has a rich, buttery texture that glides and absorbs easily and quickly onto the skin. You know how when butter spreads so evenly over a piece of bread that you can’t help but to smile in joy? Yeah, that’s how this body butter has me feeling. It’s formulated with a 15% moisture complex of jojoba seed oil, shea butter, capuacu seed butter, and hyaluronic acid, so it has been deeply hydrating for my dry skin, especially in this heat. My favorite part is that it still feels lightweight and does not leave a layer of oil on my skin like some body butter’s I’ve tried.

This formula also has some of the superberry extracts you may love from the Superberry Dream Mask, so it is packed with antioxidants to combat free radical damage and dullness, leaving the skin looking supple and smooth. Then the 3% niacinamide helps with uneven tone and reducing discoloration. Now, if you’re anything like me, you like to glow even when the sun isn’t shining – kind of like being your own sunshine, if you will. I don’t wear makeup, but I’ve seen the pearl skin trend and I wanted to partake, so I tried it with my body care.

First, I like to apply my body butter to damp skin just like with my face products. Skin is more permeable when it’s damp, so it enhances product penetration and allows my products to apply more easily and evenly. Something I’ve been loving recently is adding a few drops of the Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Oil to the Dream Body Butter as I’m applying it. This has been leaving my skin feeling extremely hydrated while giving me the pearl skin appearance I want to achieve. It’s perfect in the morning after a post-gym shower before heading out for the day, or in the evening after a long day when I want to focus on self-care and feeling luxurious. Also, my skin has been feeling softer and smoother overall. I’m about 98.78% positive this will be going into my winter body care routine as well.

As always, make sure you’re protecting the skin, body included, with a broad spectrum SPF30 or higher. Reapply every 2 hours if you’ll be exposed to UV rays through outdoor activity, windows, or driving, regardless of weather, but especially this summer.

I hope you’ve been enjoying “Ask an Esti”, and you’re continuously leaving understanding the “why” behind the “what”. Join me next time to discuss how you should be cleansing and moisturizing in this heat. Until next time, remember, Healthy skin starts with Superfoods!
