Best Body Oil for Dry Skin

Why do you need to add a body oil to your skincare routine?

Are you using a body oil in your daily skincare routine? If not, we suggest adding one in, like, today! Adding a body oil does not mean eliminating lotions or creams, but instead, we recommend adding an oil or substituting your daily body lotion with high-quality body oils. 

Body oils give your skin several benefits that aren't available with a lotion or cream, such as a healthy glow that everyone seeks while eliminating dryness by locking in moisture. Using a body oil on top of a moisturizer will lock in moisture and better penetrate the active ingredients, hydrating the skin much faster. Prefer to use a body oil by itself? Apply your body oil while skin is still damp, locking in hydration and giving your skin all the benefits of lotions and creams, and then some!

Body oils can do everything your favorite moisturizer can do and so much more!

Powerful Ingredients

SESAME OIL

It's a power-packed ingredient that has natural antioxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties. Sesame Oil is a non-fragrant plant oil that is a good source of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats and vitamin E, which have a notable calming effect on the skin. Sesame oil is a natural source of omega-6 fatty acids, and its fatty acid profile helps ensure a healthy skin barrier by complementing the skin's natural supply of ceramides and lipids. Vitamin E can also enhance hair strength and shine (Whelan).

JOJOBA OIL

Jojoba oil is a botanical extract comprised of liquid wax esters, which is essential because it's structurally and chemically the most similar to human sebum, mimicking the skin's structure. The balancing of sebum production can help eliminate acne and clogged pores (Buettner). Jojoba Oil encourages your skin to bind together, which is why it is great for scars and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It helps to soothe dry skin but is gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin types. There's plenty of evidence supporting jojoba oil to remedy acne, eczema, psoriasis, and other drying skin conditions. Jojoba Oil promotes collagen synthesis, which helps since collagen levels decrease with age. It has protective properties that help fight oxidative stress caused by everyday exposure to pollutants and toxins (Watson).

 

MORINGA OIL

Moringa Oil absorbs easily, improving the appearance and radiance of the skin (Whelan). It is full of vitamin A, which helps encourage skin cell renewal, and vitamin B helps to lock in moisture to combat dryness. Moringa Oil supports skin revitalization attributed to the moringa phenolics, including kaempferol, quercetin, rutin, gallic, chlorogenic, and ellagic, and ferulic acid, and antioxidants, and include vitamin A, C, and B (Summers). Phenolics offers the best protection against enzymes that cause the breakdown of collagen and elastin in the skin, ultimately rejuvenating the skin (Summers).
