Body oils are ~hidden gems~. They help bring back (and trap!) moisture into your skin, especially after showering or exfoliating.
Body oils vs. body lotions
Body oils aren't exactly better than body lotions—and vice-versa. In fact, they can work hand-in-hand! After all, they have the same end goal of keeping the skin soft. The only difference? A body lotion contains water and oils so it helps hydrate the skin. A body oil, on the other hand, is purely made of natural oils, so it's mainly used to seal in moisture and nourish the skin. You can use it on its own or you can pair it with a lotion (just be sure to apply it last.)
Intrigued? We found an *affordable* body oil that's worth trying out, especially if you have dry skin.
