Misconceptions about Body Oils
- Many people figure that oil and skin don't mix, thinking that this might leave their bodies feeling greasy. However, may body oils absorb quickly leaving the skin soft and supple and leaving the sheets free of damage.
- Oils penetrate and absorb easily because they're nice and light. Yes some oils are light and fast absorbing, they also provide an occlusive layer over the skin holding in the moisture from your previous skincare applications.
- It is always thought that unless the skin needs some serious repair, using oil is going to clog pores and cause acne. For many of us this is a myth. Our skin types are all different, and because natural oils are all different, how they each impact on skin can differ dramatically.
- Not all oils are they same. Each one has it’s own specific role to play as well as working within a blend to provide its ultimate super power and saviour in your routine.
