The most obvious benefit of body oils is their remarkable ability to moisturize your skin. Unlike some body lotions, the best organic body oils are free of chemicals. What's more, body oils will lock moisture into your skin for hours, while body lotions rub off more quickly. When your skin has a healthy balance of moisture, it feels soft and supple, making you both look good and feel good.
If your take the time to massage body oils into your skin, your body easily will absorb them, so you won't be left feeling greasy.
To maximize the amount of moisture that your skin absorbs, wash off any perfumes or lotions and exfoliate your skin before applying body oil. Allow the oil to soak in for at least five minutes before getting dressed so that your skin, rather than your clothing, is the thing that remains moisturized.
