People are constantly complimenting my smooth skin. "Thank-you," I reply, smiling inwardly because I know the work I put into getting that skin.
Well, I'm about to spill one of my major beauty secrets: BODY OIL does a body smooth.
I've mentioned my adoration for oil before. Body oil hydrates while leaving your skin healthy and glowing. Applied to legs and arms, oil gives the appearance of a thinner you (that's a little model trick!). I especially heart a good hefty oil in summertime as it adds a nice vibrant sheen to my faux-bronzed skin.
Here are 5 of my favorites:
Votre Vu Amour D'Ore Les Vitamines Pour Vous - A deliciously light citrus concoction (smells like Biotherm's citrus lotion) that can be used on face, body and hair. This dry spray oil (so much less of a mess!) loaded with essential oils and vitamins, not only moisturizes, it also nourishes the skin. It's the perfect way to revive dullness and add a hint of scent.
Dr. Hauschka Rose Body Oil - With the faintest rose scent, this all-natural oil seriously pampers. Damask rose essential oil and jojoba oil combine to nourish and protect while organic sunflower seed oil calms and replenishes. Goes great with a few pumps of Dr. Hauschka Rose Lotion for extra moisture and rosiness! $28.96
Pure Fiji Nourishing Exotic Oil in Mango - This is a long time favorite oil of mine. For starters, it's the perfect summer scent while adding shine and nourishment to skin and hair. Virgin coconut oil helps to seriously moisturize. Absorbs quickly while leaving a delicious lingering mango scent. Can be added to bathwater for a spa experience. $23.95
LaLicious Coconut Body Oil - I must confess, I am a sucker for anything coconut -- and this oil does not disappoint in the scent department. The tiniest bit buttered over my body evokes a wonderfully fresh coconut scent. The all-natural, pure coconut oil can be used in the bath, on hair or as a shaving cream. Like all of my favorite oils, this one leaves skin silky smooth and radiant. $24.00
Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula, Moisturizing Body Oil with Vitamin E - A lightly scented alternative to the high-end oils. It'll still soften and smooth, nourish and hydrate all for a fraction of the price. If you're still apprehensive about oils, try this one out for a mere $5.49.
