Your Guide to Natural Body Oils!
With Winter fast approaching, it's important to keep your skin hydrated. Body oils are a fantastic way to ensure your skin is moisturised and protected. Read on to find the best body oil for you!
As the winter months are fast approaching, it's important to keep your skin moisturised and protected. With the change in weather and exposure to heaters, skin can become dry and cracked more easily. Although moisturisers and body lotions improve your skin's hydration levels, I find that there is nothing more nourishing than a natural body oil! They are so easy to apply, fast absorbing and prevent your skin from looking and feeling dry.
Weleda Birch Cellulite Oil
If you're concerned with cellulite or looking for a natural way to prevent it, the Weleda Birch Cellulite Oil $32.95, is a fantastic choice. Made with regenerating ingredients including Birch Leaf Extracts, Organic Ruskus and Rosemary, this oil helps promote radiant skin. It's also formulated with natural essential oils that may help to tone and firm the skin, leaving it looking plump and supple. In an independent study conducted by dermatologists, volunteers used this Birch Cellulite Oil daily over a month. Results showed a 20% improvement in skin texture, 35% improvement in elasticity and a 21% improvement in smoothness!1
