If the recent weather has been making your skin feel dry, sensitive or just plain moody, it might be time to switch up your skincare routine. Using natural oils as a moisturizer is something that women in this region have been doing for centuries, and with good reason. Oils tend to absorb quickly into the skin, rather than sitting on the surface like some creams do. They are also lightweight and super easy to apply. Plus, do we even have to mention the gorgeous glow you get after applying moisturizing skin oil? Don’t just take our word for it; give one of our favorite oils a go!
Dr. Hauschka Normalizing Day Oil – If you thought having oily skin meant you have to avoid oils, think again. Natural oils are lightweight and balance out your skin’s hydration levels, so that your skin doesn’t overcompensate. This oil contains carrot, St. John’s Wort and neem to regulate oil production, reduce breakouts and tighten pores. It will also help clear up hyperpigmentation.
Elemis Cellular Recovery Skin Bliss Capsules – Each of these capsules contains a super concentrated blend of antioxidants that come in the form of pure Moringa Oil from Tanzania. The oil is blended together with rose oil for day and lavender for night to reverse aging, balance stressed out skin and counteract the effects of the modern world.
Aromatherapy Associates Renew Rose Massage and Body Oil – A luxurious blend of coconut, jojoba and evening primrose oils make up the base of this ultra-moisturizing body oil. As if that weren’t enough, rose, neroli, sweet orange and patchouli oils are blended into the mix to leave your skin looking, feeling and smelling beautiful.
Elemis Cellutox Body Oil – Oils aren’t only great for hydrating. This oil from Elemis contains sea flower, juniper and lemon peel to release toxins from your body, helping to reduce puffiness, water retention and even cellulite. This is a great addition to your workout routine.
The Refinery Shave Oil – This one’s for the man in your life, but we won’t tell anyone if you end up borrowing it! Filled with hydrating rose hip and jojoba oils, this oil is best applied to damp skin for a close shave. Use it on your man’s face or on your legs for smooth, hydrated, hair-free skin. It can also be applied on its own for a moisturizing treat.
