Why Use Body Oil Instead Of Lotion?
Posted on August 24 2018
Here at STARE we like to stay on the cutting edge of beauty solutions, which is why we wanted to delve into the topic of body oils and why everyone is starting to choose them over lotions. The word “oil” tends to conjure up visions of sticky or greasy liquids, but don’t worry, body oils are lightweight and leave no grease behind.
Extra hydrating power
Body oil has the miraculous power of absorbing and holding in moisture for far longer than lotions. This is due to the chemical properties of oils versus creams making them able to create a protective barrier on the skin for longer. Always apply body oil after exfoliating in the shower to lock in moisture and keep your skin feeling smooth all day long.
Repairs skin blemishes
Most natural body oils are rich in vitamins which actually have restorative effects to the skin. Additionally, you can find helpful antioxidants in body oils which help neutralize free radicals. Using body oil routinely can lead to the disappearance of stretch marks, scars, and wrinkles.
You’ve probably come across body oils in the past at a spa - they’re typically used for massages because they help hands glide across the skin without friction. Why not bring the spa home with you? Using body oil on your own is known to create similar feelings of relaxation and rest.
A little goes a long way with this potent solution. You only need about one-fourth the amount of body oil as you normally would lotion, meaning a bottle will go much farther. This is another reason to apply body oil right after getting out of the shower, less than a dime sized amount should be just enough for your entire body.
Another benefit of using body oil is that they typically contain different essential oils. This is perfect for creating an at-home aromatherapy bath. Deepen your relaxation and enhance your hydration by adding a few drops of body oil to your next bath.
