Lavender Body Oil

My personal body oil  this time is this deep relaxing lavender. My skin is naturally sensitive and always prone to dryness. I have read that body oil is a skin care product that is generally recommended as treatment or prevention of extremely dry skin. Its main ingredients tend to be oils extracted from natural sources, such as from fruit or vegetable seeds, which give the product a smooth texture. Other common active ingredients include vitamin E and fatty acids, both of which have moisturizing properties. Using body oil as a person’s selected form of moisturizer is generally only recommended for those with extremely flaky, tight, or rough skin. These type of skin issues may not respond well to lighter, water-based moisturizing products because they may not be potent enough to fully saturate the skin‘s dryness. People with normal or oily skin will typically not be advised to use the product because its heavy texture can make their skin feel overly greasy, rather than just smooth. The oil can also clog skin pores and result in pimples for some people, even if they are not acne prone.
