Body oils are currently having a real revival. That’s largely because the formula has changed. Not too long ago oils would leave your skin feeling sticky. They were rich and also slowly absorbed by the skin, sometimes not at all. But they had a great effect on skin, so the formula was developed until care oils could be perfectly integrated into daily body care.
A good care oil is quickly absorbed and doesn’t leave a film on the skin. Dry oil is the refined version of these oils and it is absorbed during application. So the oil can be used in the morning after showering and you can put your jeans on immediately afterwards.
But what advantages does it have over normal body lotions or creams? Of course it’s a matter of personal taste, but some body oils are more nourishing than normal creams. It depends of course on the ingredients. The usually comprise 100% pure oil. Often it depends on the mix. Almond oil and olive oil are the main components in care oils.
But ingredients such as vitamin E, which is in many oils, nourish and repair the skin, as well as firming it. In summer body oils, perhaps even with a light shimmer, can support a healthy tan.
Coconut oil is another popular ingredient in care oils. Its smell delights the senses and it also nourishes the skin.
The uses for body oil are very varied. Depending on your need, it goes beyond general care. Birch oil is particularly good for cellulite. Gently firming and smoothing, after a while you will see visible changes. Pomegranate oil also supports the skin’s natural elasticity and protects it with antioxidants against free radicals. If you are mainly interested in relaxation and calm, you should choose an oil containing lavender. A gentle massage supports the relaxing effect and works like a wellness treatment.
