Why you need to use a body oil

Body oils offer the perfect way to keep your skin moisturized while relaxing your mind and improving your body’s overall health.

In winter, the lack of humidity and cold air causes your skin to get a little dry, while in the summer extra exposure to the sun leaves your skin in need of more hydration to keep it moisturized. We know what you're thinking, body oils might leave your bodies feeling greasy, not the case! Body oils actually enhance the quality of your skin because they soak quickly and deeply into the skin, to provide deeper moisturization. Body oils are also designed to help repair damage to the skin, like scars and stretch marks as well as cellulite.

Essential oils and plant extracts found in oils can also have a therapeutic effect. Gently massage your chosen body oil into your skin post-shower or bath to relieve tired muscles and hydrate dry, scaly skin.

One body oil we know you are going to love for it's intense hydration and many benefits to the skin is Dermalogica's Skin Relief Treatment Oil! A aromatherapeutic blend of mind-soothing and muscle-relaxing Lavender, Sandalwood and Orange.

It blends perfectly with their Body Hydrating Cream and UltrRich Body Cream to intensify hydration and enhance aromatherapeutic benefits and leaves your skin velvet-soft and smooth.
