With the temperatures dropping my skin has been practically begging for more moisture. So, this gives me the chance to start adding body oils to my daily life. Aside from adding another element of moisture, body oils can make your skin feel luxurious AF.
Seriously, I feel super fancy when I add a body oil to my skin and I can’t be the only one. Over the years, I’ve tried quite a few oils on my body in cooler months and have a few favorites. Keep reading to see some of my favorites.
Body oils are very versatile. You can use them as a moisturizer after getting out of the shower or add it to your bath water for a spa like experience. You can use either of the body oils I’m about to share with you for either.
A few years ago, I received this L’Occitane Almond Smoothing and Beautifying Supple Skin oil as a gift. Hands down, one of the best gifts I’ve ever received. Personally, I only use this only in the fall and winter, when needed. I broke it out last week for my face, because my skin need a little more moisture. My skin love this stuff, because it easily absorbs into my skin and leaves no residue. For a second, it makes me think my skin is naturally soft and supple. So worth the money and the almond scent is subtly bougie. Unfortunately, after nursing this bottle for a few years, I recently ran out. Hopefully, I will be able to drop a few hints to someone to get this for me as a Christmas gift.
My go-to, everyday body oil is Neutrogena’s Light Sesame Body Oil and I’ve mentioned it before. For this oil to be so accessible and inexpensive, it makes you feel and smell like you paid way more than the same amount of your morning coffee fix. It’s soft, clean smell that makes you smell lovely and your skin to look supple.
Aveda’s Beautifying Composition oil is one of the body oils that high on the fragrant side, but not overwhelming. This body oil can also be used on your scalp, which is good if your scalp gets flakier in the colder months.
