Ready to amp up your bodycare routine? Adding a body oil into your daily regimen may just be what you need to not only improve your skin but also get more self-care benefits.
Did you know that having a consistent skincare and bodycare routine can help improve mood problems, unhappiness, and loneliness? Giving yourself that “special” step in your routine also helps you get a natural high — the anticipation of doing something for yourself sends physical relaxation messages to the brain. A win for your mind and a win for your skin? Sounds good to me!
Can I use body oil instead of lotion?
Yes, you can definitely use a body oil instead of lotion. Or you can also use them both at the same time!
Do you use body oil before or after shower?
It depends on the body oil you have! There are showering oils, which you use while you shower. Some people also use oils to ‘double cleanse’ before taking a shower. And then there are body oils that help moisturize your skin after showering.
Is it OK to use body oil everyday?
Yes, it’s okay to use a body oil everyday (so long as you find the right one that works for your skin, of course).
