I hate dry ashy skin, especially in the winter. During the winter time, I go through about two bottles of lotion; however, there are other times that I opt for body oils. Body oils are great for moisturizing right after the shower and personally, it gets absorbed faster and keeps the skin supple for hours. I know what you are thinking, ‘eeww body oils are greasy and stain your clothes.’ Not so I tell ya. Body oils are no longer for just massages and sun tanning.
I just discovered a skin care line that I am absolutely crazy about,Weleda Body Oil kit. The kit comes with six essential body oils. For just $12, you get a travel size bottle of the Sea Buckthorn Body Oil, Lavender Relaxing Body Oil, Birch Cellulite Oil, Arnica Massage Oil, Wild Rose Body Oil and the Citrus Refreshing Body Oil. I use the Wild Rose body oil after showers and I must say I am impressed in how good the oil feels on my skin. The oil seeps into the skin and seals in moisture giving me an ashy-free day. I use the Arnica body oil on my cuticles; yes that is part of the body.
