Top 3 body oils that will transform your skin! + a BONUS DIY

Hi Beautiful,

It's really getting cold in New Jersey and my skin dreads the winter. Two years ago was my first time in a longtime (over 4 years) living in a winter city and my skin struggled with the weather change. No matter what lotion I used, i noticed my skin would crack, I would look ashy and dry after standing outside for just a few minutes.

Last year, I realized that the skins ability to retain moisture became compromised during winter and a rich moisturizer wasn't helping with the dryness. I finally found the perfect way to keep your skin well hydrated all winter long.

For those who don't know, Body oils are smooth, thick and highly concentrated liquids that enhance the appearance and quality of skin. They are non-greasy, lightweight and incredibly hydrating.What oils do is it helps to seal in moisture and humectants while improving cell cohesion which limits transepidermal water loss.

Not all body oils are the same. I usually look for natural, organic with a scent that I like. I also look for one with ingredients I can benefit from, like jojoba, vitamin E to help with skin hydration and elasticity.

When applying, you have to do it right after you jump out of the shower and towel dry. While your skin in slightly damp, it allows the oils to penetrate deep and quickly.
