Two posts today! If you'd like to see my #NailArtForNubs post, click here! It goes live at 9am Eastern.
In the meantime, I want to tell you about a recent obsession of mine - OIL. Sounds dirty, doesn't it? Being oiled up, glistening, shiny... soft, glowing, and healthy!
I recently bought a few of the Beautifying Oils from The Body Shop in Moringa, Satsuma, and Sweet Lemon.
They smell amazing! Moringa is lightly nutty. Satsuma is a strong, sweet clementine/orange scent, and Sweet Lemon is like a fresh-cut lemon. The oils are all blends, clear in color, and light on the skin. They all absorb quickly, too.
While they all come in bottles with a stream dispenser, I actually prefer to put them in a spray bottle. I can mix the scents if I want to, and the oil is easier to spritz all over the body (and, frankly, my walls and floor, so be careful!) I find it goes on and absorbs faster this way.
I've been using a homemade blend of oils for my face and cuticles, but these are nice, too. Now, if you're thinking that you can't use oils because you have oily skin - you'd be wrong! Oil dissolves oil, which actually keeps your skin cleaner and more balanced. Check out information on oil cleansing methods if you'd like to learn how to clean your face with oil.
You may be surprised to learn all the things you can do with oil - it's great for hair and skin. Many oils are multi-purpose, too. Coconut oil is some amazing stuff.
Forget what you think about oil being greasy and dirty - you may be pleasantly surprised! Have you tried oils for health and beauty?
