What are Body Oils and How to Use Them
Dry, flaky skin can make you feel self-conscious and uncomfortable in your own skin. Whether you’ve slathered on layers of body lotion in the past without much luck, or simply are tired of your dull, dry skin, body oils provide the perfect solution to effectively hydrate your skin. From moisturizing your skin to providing a soothing way to calm your mind, body oils offer countless physical and mental benefits. Discover how to use body oils to effortlessly restore your skin’s hydration levels below.
What is Body Oil
Body oils are thick, highly concentrated liquids that sink deep into the skin to moisturize and restore your skin’s natural hydration.
Body oils can be a great alternative to using body lotions. This is because, although body lotions can be effective at adding moisture to the skin, lotions can easily rub off, thus not providing the skin with the adequate product necessary to effectively hydrate the skin.
How to Use Body Oil for Optimal Results
To use body oil, first, cleanse your entire body to ensure you have a clean base to work with. Applying body oil right after your daily shower routine is the best time to apply body oil!
Once you’ve showered and have dried yourself off, gently massage the body oil onto your skin. Apply a few drops of the body oil in each desired area of your body and slowly massage the product into your skin. The warmth of your hands massaging the product into the skin will help the product absorb faster. It will take about 5 to 15 minutes for the body oil to fully absorb into the skin.
Why Use Body Oil
Body oil has several physical and mental health benefits. Below are 4 of the top reasons you should consider using body oil.
1. Moisturizes and Replenishes Dry Skin
Body oils provide the perfect way to keep your skin moisturized, no matter the time of year. Specifically, it hydrates your skin, giving you a glowy, healthy look. Plus, body oils help to seal in the moisture of the product to ensure lasting hydration for hours after application, unlike body lotions that tend to easily rub or sweat off.
2. Health Benefits
Body oils have been found to provide numerous health benefits. For instance, body oils have been found to help with body aches and pains. Body oils have also been found to lower stress levels, providing users with a relaxing way to calm their minds, manage their stress, and hydrate their skin.
3. Improves Your Mental Health
Similarly, body oils have been found to reduce stress and anxiety levels, and provide users with a sense of relaxation. This is thanks to both the massage therapy aspect of the body oil, as well as the body oil’s ingredients providing an element of relaxing aromatherapy to relax the mind and body.
4. More Cost-Effective than Traditional Body Lotions
Last but not least, body oils tend to be more affordable than body lotions. This is because body oils tend to last longer than lotions as the high concentration of the oil requires just a little amount per use to effectively moisturize the skin.
