Learn More About Using Body Oils
Here's everything you need to know to start using body oil.
What Is Body Oil Good For?
Body oil is primarily used to moisturise and protect the skin barrier. Additionally, body oils can be used to reduce signs of stretch marks, turn sensitive skin into resistant, firm skin, and feed the skin with nourishing ingredients.
From coconut oil to lavender oil, we have the best body oils for your individual skin type. Our collection of body oils contains all the essential oils for your desired outcome. Apply body oil everyday to damp skin, post shower, to realise all the benefits body oil can bring to the skin and body.
Is Vitamin C Body Oil Good For Your Skin?
Yes, vitamin C body oil is good for your skin. Vitamin C has been used in skincare products for years because it supports skin health. Specifically, it can help prevent sun damage, premature skin ageing and spots, and improves the appearance of wrinkles. Choosing a vitamin C body oil will help you protect and support your skin.
Is Olive Oil Good For Body Oil?
Extra virgin olive oil does make a good body oil as it contains vitamin E, antioxidants and other compounds that are good for your skin. However, it can be impractical to use olive oil as skin care because it is quite greasy and can stop your skin from ‘breathing’ normally, blocking pores. If you are applying olive oil to your skin, you should rinse off before going about your day or going to bed – typically after a few minutes is enough.
What Does Bio Oil Skincare Oil Do?
Bio Oil was created to combat the appearance of scarring and stretch marks on the skin. Bio Oil skincare oil can be used on your face and body.
Bio Oil can be added to your collection of go-to essential oils. In particular, it is a great body oil for dry and dehydrated skin. Its hydrating effects supplement the skin's natural oils that can be stripped away by extreme weather conditions or chemicals applied to the skin.
Bio Oil's calendula oil helps the growth of new skin cells. This smooths and tones wrinkles for ageing skin types and reduces the signs of scars and stretch marks. Bio Oil is a body oil that also contains vitamins A and E. Vitamin A improves the skin’s elasticity and texture, while vitamin E moisturises the skin leaving it smooth. Bio Oil face and body oil also contains rosemary oil, which eases puffiness and swelling of the skin.
How To Use Body Oil for Dry Skin, Normal Skin & Oily Skin
Body oil is your natural, nutritional and (often) fragrance free option for a moisturiser. Contrary to what you may think, body oil absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving a greasy residue – these are sometimes also called 'dry oils' meaning they are oils that dry quickly. The natural properties of body oil make them highly desired.
Tips For Body Oils Based On Your Skin Type
Body Oil For Dry Skin
The best body oils for dry skin contain a lightweight formula and ingredients that combat dryness by eliciting water retention, moisturising benefits and hydrating effects. Avocado oil is one of the best body oils for dry skin. The lightweight oil can even be applied to hair to combat scalp dryness. Sweet almond oils are the best body oils for massage therapists as it is a body oil suitable for even the most irritated and dry skin types. The Nature's Aid Almond Oil is a body oil that nourishes, revives and promotes healthy skin. For severe dryness, try Uriage Xémose Anti-Itch Soothing Oil Balm.
Body Oil For Oily Skin
The best body oils for oily skin contain omega fatty acids that help to regulate the skin's oil production. Body oils that contain these essential fatty acids include a variety of plant, nut and seed body oils such as jojoba oil, black seed oil, flaxseed and argan oil. Flaxseed and argan oil can be found in Viridian 100% Organic Clear Skin Omega Oil, helping to prevent breakouts common for those with oily skin. Jojoba oil is a body oil that can also be used in aromatherapy, which is good for calming nerves and improving memory.
Body Oil for Normal Skin
Coconut oil is one of the most common body oils and is used as a versatile moisturiser that can also treat wounds and acne-prone skin. It is one of the best body oils to protect the skin barrier from harmful bacteria. 100% coconut oil is full of all the good stuff. It is more than a body oil, it can also be used to protect and repair damage to hair and teeth and can be used in cooking. Lavender oil is used to calm and replenish the skin and the senses and is a body oil for any skin type.
