If your goal are to keep your body’s skin moisturized and smelling tantalizing, there are two key players: body butters and scented body oils. Though both oils and body butters moisturize the skin, they get the job done differently. Skinsational Scents carry some of the best scented body oil in the market. Here are some key tips for using scented body oils, if you are a novice with this type of product.
1. APPLY IT POST-SHOWER
The best time to use scented body oils is immediately after your shower. It will help seal the skin’s hydration. Just after toweling off, spray away and rub the oil in completely. Wait until the oil dries entirely and gently blot any excess using a soft towel if you feel the need. The goal is to leave the skin feeling soft but not greasy and it can absorb differently for different skin types.
2. USE WITH CREAM OR BODY BUTTER
You can also layer body oil, using it before or after your body butter-based moisturizer. When you use body oil under or on top of a body butter, it’s possible to see improved penetration of the active ingredients, which will yield more noticeable hydrating results. Using a body oil can help boost your skin’s radiance over time. Skinsational Scents carry more than 2000 natural fragrance oils for skin. This can be purchased online or in store. They are the absolute ideal for your skin because they contain no alcohol or chemicals.
3. DROP SOME IN YOUR BATH
If you’re taking a bath, adding a few drops of body oil to the tub will jumpstart the moisturizing process as you soak. Look for body oils mixed with a natural fragrance you love to provide an aromatherapy experience while moisturizing. You can find the best natural skin oil in store or online at skinsationalscents.com.
4. USE IT AS MOISTURIZER DAILY
Restore moisture and hydration by using your scented body oil daily. Body oils can hydrate your skin, balance your mood and allow you to practice self-care.
BENEFITS OF USING BODY OIL
Skin oils have been used for decades to promote moisture, promote a healthier skin barrier function and nourish the skin. Many body oils are rich in essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and nourishing ingredients key for skin health.
Perhaps the most noticeable benefit of body oils is their hydration benefits. Luxe Restorative Moisturizer Body Oil, for example, increases skin hydration by 40% in just one hour.
SOOTHES AND SOFTENS YOUR SKIN
Our Oils contain natural lipids, like those present in our skin barrier. These lipids help fill the gaps between our skin cells that can appear due to dryness or flaking. Thus, oils create a smoother surface as it traps these lipids in our skin.
RICH IN ANTIOXIDANT PROPERTIES
Not all scented body oils contain antioxidants that can help protect the skin, repair flaky skin and diminish the appearance of stretch marks and scars.
Skinsational Scents scented body oils contain different fatty acids, including linoleic and oleic acids, known as omega-6 and omega-9. They help protect our skin barrier.
