We’ve all heard about body oils, but have you ever tried using them? If you are looking for an alternative to lotion or a good addition to the mix body oils might be right for you! Plus with the winter weather, you’ll thank us for adding this easy to use oil to your routine.
Body oils do everything from enhancing your favorite moisturizing lotion to taking care of those hard to nourish places.
Here are our best uses for body oils:
Add a few drops to your bath
This is a place your normal lotion can’t assist you in nourishing your skin. Just add a few drops of your favorite body oil to your bath to let the moisturizing process take place as you soak. I call this my multi-tasking holiday helper. Too much to do and not enough time. Relax, moisturize, and stay calm.
Post-shower skin power
Before stepping out of the shower and while your skin is still wet, drop some body oil into your palm and massage over your entire body. A little goes a long way and works wonders to replenish and revive your dry winter skin. Currently, we are loving Hugo Naturals Indonesian Patchouli and Sandalwood Body Oil. Keep in your shower for easy access.
Target dry spots like a pro
Give those dry and dull skin problem areas the boot with a little extra TLC from heel to head with body oil. An extra dab of body oil provides the extra love and care you need to make the difference this winter.
Diminish stretch marks
For those with stretch marks, we are always looking for a solution. Oils are a perfect solution because they penetrate deep beyond that first layer of your skin. They reduce the appearance of stretch marks and you’ll notice over time as the oil does its magic that it will help promote elasticity and preventing additional stretch marks from showing up on your beautiful skin.
Doubles as a massage oil
Need some self-care or some S.O. care? Perhaps get together in the evening and give each other a massage on your back, feet, or wherever you need it the most. This will do wonders for your skin, your senses, and your stress. Basically a win-win for everyone.
Razor burn be gone
If you have every nicked yourself shaving, then you know how important prepping your skin pre-shave is. Also in the winter, our skin gets extra dry and this will help you immensely. Just apply a small amount to your legs for a clean shave sans the razor burn and bumps.
Ditch the pantyhose
I love taking a little concealer or foundation powder and mixing it in with some oil and then applying it to my legs for perfect legs without the pantyhose in the mix. You can do this any season really and it makes your legs look amazing.
