Benefits Of Body Oil

 

EXPLORE THE BENEFITS OF USING BODY OIL

From years of products advertising oil-free formulas for our skin, body oil might seem like a risky option. But does body oil leave your skin feeling greasy? Quite the opposite. Despite its name, body oil is actually a light-weight, intensively nourishing and protective moisturiser. It soaks into the upper layers of your skin to instantly enhance its quality and your overall skin tone. The best body oils are extracted from roots, fruits, flowers and leaves and are free from nasty mineral oils. Ingredients like avocado oil, cottonseed oil and macadamia oil are instrumental for achieving firmer, even looking and soft silky skin. Let’s explore some of the other reasons why body oil should become part of your daily body care routine.

HELPS YOUR SKIN RETAIN ITS MOISTURE

Above all, body oil helps to lock moisture into your skin for hours. It penetrates your skin’s protective barrier and helps maintain a radiant glow throughout the day. To maximise the amount of moisture your skin retains, remember to cleanse and exfoliate your skin before you apply body oil. Let the oil to soak in for two - three minutes before getting dressed. This way your skin stays moisturised and your clothes stay grease free.

 

ACTIVELY FADE YOUR STRETCH MARKS

Stretch marks can be a bit of a nuisance. And although there isn’t a way to be rid of them completely, applying a firming body oil can dramatically reduce their appearance. If you are looking for a safe body oil to use during pregnancy, make sure you choose one that doesn’t contain Vitamin A. NIVEA’s 4 in 1 Firming Body Oil is free from Vitamin A, making it suitable for use throughout your pregnancy.

 

SAVE YOUR PENNIES

Another great benefit of switching to a body oil is how economical it can be. A little goes a long way. Especially if you apply body oil to damp skin right after you’ve hopped out of the shower. You’ll be surprised how much a few drops will spread. It can sometimes take several generous pumps of body lotion to relieve your skin's dehydration. Whereas a tiny amount of body oil will likely be enough to moisturise most of your body.

 

SOAK UP THE BENEFITS IN THE BATH

For an extreme moisturising experience, add a few drops of your favourite body oil into a warm bath. As you soak, the body oil and bath water will gently hydrate your skin. To boost hydration, apply a few more drops of body oil to your damp skin when you hop out and enjoy silky soft skin before you hop into bed.

Stretch marks

If you’ve never experimented with body oil for daily moisturising, maybe it’s time for a change. Why not swap out your favourite lotion and try a body oil instead? An intensely hydrating body oil could be just what your dry skin needs.

Always read the label. Follow the directions for use.
