Skin, and especially spray tanned skin, needs daily hydration to keep it healthy. Moisturizing lotions are the typical first line of defense. But body oils, which are too often overlooked, offer many benefits as well.
Typically, the best oils are organic and extracted from roots, fruits, flowers and leaves. New Gorgeous’ Anti-Aging formulation, for example, is made from a combination of avocado, sweet almond and sesame oils and is enriched with vitamin E, which helps minimize the look of fine lines, wrinkles and scars.
Here are just a few advantages body oil can offer skin and health conscious clients:
Unlike most lotions, which rub off fairly quickly, body oils lock moisture into the skin for hours at a time. The best way to ensure this happens is to take the time to massage body oil into the skin and wait five minutes after application before putting on any clothing.
Enhanced skin nutrition
During times of stress, blood gets routed to vital organs such as the heart and brain. Skin is the last tissue to receive bodily nutrients, which can leave it looking duller and drier than normal.
Additionally, stress can also lead to an increased production of oxidant molecules called free radicals. These in turn can break down skin cells and lead to premature aging.
Using a vitamin enhanced body oil like our Anti-Aging formula can help counteract the effects of stress on the skin and help it maintain a healthier appearance.
More product for the money
Body oils are usually more expensive than lotions. But this hides one important fact: a little body oil goes a long way.
While it might take several dollops of moisturizer to hydrate skin, a much smaller amount of oil will do the same thing. This is especially true if the oil has been warmed before use. Heat expands oil and makes it lighter, so less product covers more area.
