Beautiful Body Oils

A nourishing body oil is the best remedy for parched winter skin

Winter is here, and with it, that instinctual need to warm up. Hot showers and baths are great, but they can have a drying effect on skin that might already be on the parched side. Let body oils come to the rescue.

“Smaller molecules allow oils to penetrate more quickly and deeply into the skin than lotion,” explains Anna Pamula. “They are also very nourishing, helping to replenish the oils from within the layers of the skin, and enhancing the production of the body’s own natural oils, which are often lost when skin is dry.”

If you choose to fortify vegetable oils with essential oils, you will also control mood swings that are typical in winter months.

Here are eight beautiful body oils perfect for the cold weather season, plus tips on how to best make them work for you.

WINTER MOISTURIZING TIPS

Foe maximum body oil benefits, follow these expert tips

———————————————————————————————————————

  • Choosing oils that are rich in amino and fatty acids, and are scented with natural essential oils-key for something that will penetrate so deeply into the skin.
  • Applying oil on damp skin, after a bath or shower. It seals in the moisture and humidity, and gives you an added boost of nourishment.
  • Exfoliating in the shower before you apply an oil, for optimal absorption.
  • Using therapeutic application and massage techniques: start with small circular motions, and start from the feet, working your way towards your heart. Don’t forget to apply to your neck, hands and feet, which need extra hydration!
  • Heating it up: warm a small amount of oil in double boiler before you apply to further help stimulate circulation.
