5 natural skin care products made for your butt
Give your rump the TLC it deserves
Beauty Crew Beauty Writer / January 16 2020
Have you noticed butt-specific skin care is suddenly EVERYWHERE? From sheets masks and lotions, to scrubs and tightening/firming/toning/everything creams, booty products (pun intended!) seem to be all the rage right now.
And we’re kind of into it.
Truth is, your butt is just as susceptible to all those annoying things like adult acne (or in this case, buttne!), dryness, dullness, uneven texture and even the signs of ageing like loss of firmness and elasticity, just like your face. So, why not do everything you can to keep that peach looking all firm, glowy and happy?
If you’re ready to get behind (sorry) butt skin care, here's everything you need to know about the latest products specifically formulated for bums - that do everything from helping treat butt acne to giving you a firmer, smoother behind. The best part? They’re all natural. *Swoon*.
Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream
Sol de Janeiro’s Brazilian Bum Bum Cream smells SO darn good you’ll want to use it as an all-over body lotion – it’s like a salted caramel dream - and you’ll have a 100 per cent chance of someone telling you how good you smell. Apart from smelling ridiculously delicious, Brazilian Bum Bum Cream is *uber* hydrating for those who suffer from dry skin. It’s formulated with guarana, which has antioxidant and antimicrobial properties to boost circulation and smooth skin; cupuaçu butter to encourage skin elasticity; antioxidant powerhouse açaí; and super-conditioning coconut oil. Did we mention it smells good?
Bawdy Beauty Squeeze It! Butt Sheet Mask
Move over face masks, butt masks are now a thing! And with a slogan like “My Butt Looks Better Than Your Face”, we’re already sold (and have also noted this for future comebacks). These guys (just FYI there’s a whole delightful range) are *built* for the ‘gram, and come packaged in pairs – one for each cheek. Squeeze It! features a whole heap of refreshing citrusy ingredients like orange peel, lemon and grapefruit. It's great for acne-prone skin and works to reduce the appearance of butt acne, red bumps, and dullness, and evens your skin tone for a radiant-looking behind. We recommend applying the masks while standing, and then flopping onto your belly for a solid 10 minutes of inbox clearing/social scrolling.
Anese That Booty Tho
This millennial pink scrub has a bit of a cult-following going on (there’s over 600 reviews on their website – and a HEAP of them are five-stars), and you’ve probably seen it pop up on your Insta feed. Formulated with organic ingredients, this ultra-fine walnut shell scrub (sounds hurty, but it’s actually really gentle) contains a mix of oils, extracts, antioxidants and essential fatty acids, and promises to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, cellulite and discolouration. And if you're wondering how to get rid of butt acne, this little pink tub might just be what you've been looking for. It not only helps improve circulation, it also sloughs off dead skin cells (a common cause of acne flare-ups on your bum) to help clear up butt breakouts and leave you with a silky smooth behind.
Lush Cosmetics Rump Bottom Rub
Specifically created for cyclists and runners (tight clothing and sweat has a lot to do with ingrown hairs and butt pimples), the Lush Cosmetics Rump Bottom Rub is a thick, creamy butter (that’s also surprisingly lightweight and fast-absorbing) that helps to ease chaffing and decrease friction while soothing sore muscles. It’s made with cupuaçu butter to condition and smooth the skin, while rose water and aloe vera gel (which have antibacterial properties) offer a calming and soothing effect. The smell is *incredible* and will stick around the whole day.
Dollar Hippy Club x No Bra Club Power To The Peach
What’s a booty skin care routine without a nourishing oil? Packed full of skin-loving ingredients like peach and apricot kernel oils, the aptly named Power To The Peach works to firm and tone the skin, while plant-based silicone helps reduce the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks. The formula not only smells good, it will also make your butt glimmer – which is just a good time in itself.
If you’re struggling with acne on your face and have tried everything from tea tree oil and benzoyl peroxide, to salicylic acid and lactic acid, here are some hardworking acne treatments you probably haven't heard of.
