Body Oil: Frequently asked questions
What types of Body Oil are there and what determines a good product?
A good body oil is one that has a light texture and absorbs into the skin easily. It should not leave your skin feeling greasy or sticky, but instead smooth and soft to touch.
Who should use a Body Oil?
Based on what criteria should you buy a Body Oil?
The biggest thing to look out for is the ingredients. You want an oil that will hydrate your skin without clogging pores, and if you have sensitive skin, make sure it’s fragrance-free. Also check the price; oils can be pricey but they last a long time so it’s worth investing in one with great quality.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of a Body Oil?
Body oils are great for dry skin and they also help to lock in moisture. They can be used on the face, body or hair. You could even mix a few drops of essential oil with your favorite carrier oil (like coconut) and use it as an aftershave.
Body oils are not as easy to apply, and they can be messy. They also take a while longer to absorb into the skin than lotions or creams do.
