What is body oil used for?
Let’s begin by discussing the purpose of a body oil. What a body oil is used for is hydrating the skin. However, it also comes with plenty of other benefits depending on its ingredients.
For example, plant-based oils are particularly great for locking moisture into our skin which is a major point that argues a body oil is better than a lotion. This is because the ingredients in plant-based oils mimic the natural structure of our skin. Therefore, they absorb quickly, penetrate deep beneath the surface and can help to repair the skin’s moisture barrier- the key for long-lasting hydration. Plant-based oils include Almond Oil and Cannabis Seed Oil, found in Mio’s Go With The Flow Calming Body Oil.
Body oils can also be used for adding a glow to the skin, especially during summer months. This is especially true if they contain ingredients that are rich in vitamin C, such as a blend of Indian Fig Extract. Vitamin C works to even out the skin-tone, boost collagen and fight the appearance of dull skin, so is a great addition to achieve that summer radiance.
Finally, certain body oils are used for calming and soothing the mind. While Cannabis Seed Oil is known for its calming properties, body oils can also contain an aromatherapy blend of feel-good Essential Oils. Lavender, peppermint, lemon, mandarin and eucalyptus all work well to help you unwind after a long day and prepare the body for rest.
