The Benefits of Body Oils for Skin

If you are of a certain age, the term “body oil” probably makes you think of baby oil, which is transported from your local store in plastic gallon containers. You would then slather it on your skin before lying down in the sun. Baby oil consists mostly of mineral oil, which is derived from petroleum.

In the United States, not all petroleum products go through the refinement process. This means they can contain polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) , which are dangerous chemicals that have been linked to cancer. There’s no reason why these should be on your body in any capacity.

Body oils have come a long way, but some still contain harmful ingredients. Let’s take a look at the benefits of body oils and which ones are the safest and most effective.

What Are the Benefits of using Body Oils?

Your skin naturally produces a hydrating and protective oil called sebum.Sebum helps moisturize your skin, protect it from infections, and keep it soft. However, if you produce too much sebum, your pores can become clogged.

By using products that contain hydrating oils, you can prevent your sebaceous glands from overcompensating for dry skin by producing too much sebum. Deeply moisturizing your skin will help regulate its natural moisture production.

You can find both quality and quantity in a high-quality body oil.

Hydration 

Body oils are quickly and easily absorbed by the skin, especially if they contain jojoba oil. Jojoba oil is closest in chemical makeup to sebum, which is our skin’s own natural oil. Coconut oil is another excellent choice for keeping skin hydrated. Not only does it have antimicrobial  properties, but it also has antifungal properties as well. Plus, it’s packed with vitamin E and fatty acids that work to keep skin soft and supple. 

Shine

Lotions can oftentimes make your skin seem lackluster, or even waxy. On the other hand, body oil provides a dry sheen that looks shiny and healthy without any grease or stickiness. Additionally, regular use of body oil helps give your skin a natural glow.

Nourishment 

Why spend your money on skin care products that don’t even have beneficial ingredients for your skin health? You should be mindful of what you’re putting on your skin, and that includes body oil. 

Body oils aren’t only made to hydrate your skin- although that’s important too. They’re also effective in diminishing the appearance of things like wrinkles, fine lines, scars, and sun spots.

A body oil’s ingredients should always have a skin-related function; if they don’t, it’s best to avoid them. Inert ingredients are not only ineffective, but can also pollute your products with dangerous chemicals you don’t need.

Can I Use Body Oil Every Day?

We recommend that you use body oil every day. If you apply the oil to your skin while it is still damp from showering, your skin will better absorb the natural plant-based oils and become more hydrated.

Is It Bad for My Skin to Use Body Oil?

Before using body oil on your entire face or body, first test it on the inside of your arm if you have sensitive skin or suffer from acne. Even though natural oils derived from plants and won’t clog pores, some people find their skin purges when they start to use these products. If that happens to you, don’t worry! Your skin will become used to being healthy and hydrated in around one week.
