Since we’re in the midst of the summer season, it’s more than important to keep skin hydrated, and sometimes using a moisturiser just isn’t enough.
Body oils are a great alternative because they soak into the skin, and soothe even nasty dry patches on the face and body. Shop from a few of our must-haves for the summer season, or simply use as a luxurious pampering treatment throughout the year.
Used for years as a supplement for hair, skin, and nails, argan oil is packed with Vitamin E for optimum strength and shine. Lather over your dry patches to quickly rejuvenate the skin while you sleep.
While coconut oil may feel rather thick in texture, it is one of the best products you can put on your skin. The fatty acids contained inside help to replenish dry, cracked skin without feeling too greasy.
Grape seed oil
If you have acne-prone skin, grape seed oil is gentle enough to use on a daily basis. Unlike other oils, it won’t aggravate your acne, but instead is packed with linoleic acid which has anti-inflammatory properties and heals the skin.
Add a few teaspoons of olive oil into your hair and skincare mask to receive the rich benefits of antioxidants. It contains Vitamin A and Vitamin E which is ideal for women suffering from skin damage, and even extremely dehydrated skin.
If you suffer from an oily skin and scalp, jojoba oil is the perfect product to use since it is similar to sebum. Jojoba acts as a lightweight moisturiser which soaks quickly into the skin, and won’t give a sticky residue afterwards.
Give your body a good exfoliating session by lathering sweet almond oil over arms, legs, back and decolletage. It acts as a natural exfoliator by gently removing dead skin cells, and is ideal for those who already suffer from sensitive skin.
