Luminosity boosters. Pumped-up hydrators. These are the two elements that the best body oils must possess. They must be lightweight and bring an extra touch of softness to our bodies. Did you know that Ancient Romans and Egyptians used to cover themselves in body oils or that Ayurvedic practitioners consider them to have healing properties?
Today, both women and men use some of the best body oils: organic oils, essential oils, cold-pressed oils, spray oils, hot oil products. Why? They are not greasy, non-sticky, they are extra lightweight but nourish and moisture and hydrate deeply, so what’s not to love? And with the fact that winter is here to stay for at least two or three months, there is no better way to treat and pamper our bodies if not with natural and organic body oils. Gentlemen, I hope you are reading this and taking some notes.
I have prepared a list of some of the moment’s best body oils, which I suggest you should try and most certainly love. I am ready to go out shopping and get some. Are you? Let’s take a look and see which ones to buy.
