If we were to choose between a body cream and body oil, we would say body oil without hesitation. We have nothing against body creams, but when it comes to taking good care of your skin, you should know that a body cream contains more chemicals than body oil. In recent years, body oils have become so popular and we are thankful to the brands that are not creating more of those greasy sticky formulas, which would make our days miserable when applied on our clothes, because of the oil marks.
Body oils are perfect in all seasons, because they make sure to completely nourish our skin and the moisture stays longer in it. Such a thing doesn’t happen for most body creams. As specified, body oils seal the moisture in our skin, without letting it evaporate. By doing so, the skin is nourished and moisturized for hours. Thus, this product should be our top choice. But the key to good nourishment stands on the way the oil is applied. For those who do not know, it can be absorbed better if the skin is a bit damp. So, when you finish your shower, do not dry immediately with a towel, but apply a body oil while the droplets are still on your skin and massage it with your hands.
