It was my first experience of a major earthquake yesterday and the experience was one of a kind! Hope everyone is in good health and the people in Nepal are safe as well. Anyway, as the Indian summers approached, it was time for me to bring some changes in my skin care regime. I was really willing to try one of the beautifying oils from The Body Shop. They have almost 11 different oils in this range, and every single one of them has a unique fragrance to it. Some may be more moisturising than the other, but mostly they are all the same and can be used for a ton of different purposes. So today, I will share with you a few ways in which you can use your beautifying oils. 🙂
As A Facial Moisturiser
If you have dry skin and you are looking for a lightweight moisturiser for summers, this can be THE product for you. I personally use 1-2 drops of the oil on clean face and follow up with a sunscreen and then powder. This keeps my face hydrated and doesn’t make my skin look oily at all. You can also use it before going to bed.
For Facial Massage
Every once in a while, it’s good to give your face a massage. Not only it will promote circulation, but also will leave behind a glowing skin. Just use a few drops of the oil on your face and massage. You could also follow up with steaming. This would allow deeper penetration of the oil into your skin.
As A Body Moisturiser
Having problems with dry skin during summers? I understand your pain. Though, most of us don’t need any moisturisers during summers, but sometimes our skin can turn out to be dry and dull. A boost of moisturiser can wake your skin up. Just use a few drops on your hand and legs and you are ready to go! These oils get easily absorbed into your skin, and don’t leave any traces behind.
These oils are a amazing when it comes to shaving. Just slather some oil onto your legs and shave. The oils will allow a closer shave and also moisturise your skin. Your legs will look clean and shiny!
As A Hair Oil
These beautifying oils are not extremely moisturising. So, I would recommend you to mix some drops of the beautifying oils to either your homemade hair packs or other hair oils. After washing, your hair will look shiny and will feel softer.
As A Makeup Remover
Too tired to remove your makeup? Just take 2-3 drops of the oil in a cotton pad and use it to remove eye and lip makeup. It does its job effortlessly and can easily remove waterproof liner.
To Tame Frizzy Hair
Followed by summer comes monsoon, aka the season of frizzy hair! If you don’t want your hair to look like a nest, just use a few drops of the oil at the lower ends of your hair after washing. This would act as a serum and keep your ends moisturised and healthy. Another use of these oils is that you can add some drops of the oil with water in a spray bottle and take it along with yourself wherever you go. Just spray whenever you feel your feel dry or frizzy.
As Cuticle Oil
Planning to give yourself a manicure at home? Then, these oils can come handy. With the help of a makeup brush, just apply the oil on your cuticles at the last step of the manicure. This will make your nails shiny and smooth.
These beautifying oils smell divine and can be used for various purposes. They are really light as compared to other oils and sink into your skin very easily. They don’t leave any traces behind and won’t irritate your skin or give you any break outs. This makes these oils perfect for summers! So, if you have one already, make the best out of it! 😉
Hope you have a lovely day!
