Should you use body lotion or body butter? Well, it depends on your skin type, your age, the climate that surrounds you, and off course- your personal taste. If you are not sure what the differences are between lotions, crèmes and body butters, this one’s for you!

A quick look in any beauty store, including our store, reveals an abundance of skincare products.  In order to make the right choices and buy the correct products, it’s important to know the differences between them, and shop wisely for the skincare products that are right for you.

Body Lotion and Body Butter- Body butter is a cream formula that is better suited for dry skin. Body butter ingredients often include shea butter, which is a rich velvety component that moisturizes the skin much deeper then a body lotion. In comparison, body lotion is a moisturizer with a lower content of emollients, usually for normal skin. Body lotion is best in the summer time, when you are hot and sweaty, because it is light and cool. In the winter time, body butter is recommended, to help your skin restore its natural moisture and prevent cracks and dead skin cell buildup. Jericho Body Lotion comes in 3 wonderful fragrances: Vanilla, Ocean Breeze and Milk & Honey. (Buy now and save 13% off the regular price). Jericho Body Butter also has 3 wonderful and unique scents including Mango, Vanilla, and Kiwi (save 9% of retail price in our store only).

Scrubs and Exfoliants- A scrub is an all-over body treatment used to buff away dry skin. Scrubs come in various forms, scents and even different sized granules for varying degrees of dry skin. Body scrubs are usually used in the shower on thoroughly wet skin- the scrub is rubbed into the skin and then rinsed off. Jericho’s Energizing Salt Scrub with Lemon Grass, for example, can be used all over the body or just on areas with dry skin. The main difference between sugar scrubs and salt scrubs is the size of the granules. Sea salt granules are larger than sugar granules, which makes salt scrubs stronger at sloughing off dead skin cells. Jericho’s also contain mineral rich Dead Sea Salt….not just any salt! Using a body scrub is good for keeping skin healthy and soft; therefore, it is important to exfoliate skin on a regular basis, especially in dry and cold weather when the body easily loses moisture. The term exfoliation is used to refer to facial scrubs, which are much gentler then body scrubs.  Try our Peel off Mineral Mask and enjoy a deep exfoliation and a thorough cleansing.

Facial Cleansers and Toners- it is not recommended to use regular soap on your face, since it tends to dry out and harm the skin. There are several types of facial cleansers that are much more suitable for the facial skin, such as cleanser, foams and special bars like Jericho Black Mud soap, Seaweed Soap, Acne Soap, and many more. Use your choice of facial wash first, and then use toner. Toner is important to balance out the PH levels of your skin after washing, and also removing all the impurities left on your skin.
