Which oil(s) should be used for the body?

On a daily basis, the skin is constantly under attack. As a result, it can become dehydrated and dry to the point of showing signs of discomfort and dryness marks. To regain soft and comfortable skin, it is recommended to apply a moisturising treatment to the skin after showering, such as a vegetable oil, in order to nourish, hydrate, protect it and allow it to regain its suppleness. But which one should you choose?

Why does the skin become dry?

The integrity of the skin barrier is being challenged. Indeed, the hydrolipidic film that covers the epidermis is weakened. Similarly, the intercellular lipid cement can also be altered. As a result, water evaporates and the skin becomes dry. The causes of this dryness are manifold. This can be the case after showering, following the use of irritating or stripping products for the skin, due to weather conditions (cold, wind, heat, etc...), after shaving or waxing, or even following too frequent exfoliations. This phenomenon has direct consequences on the appearance and feel of the skin: tightness, itching, redness, flaking, roughness, harshness and discomfort. Thus, all skin types, without exception, can face this situation: dry, normal, combination, oily or mature skin. The body therefore needs hydrating and nourishing products that will make the skin softer and smoother and prevent it from drying out.

Which plant oils should be used as body care treatments?

Theargan vegetable oil is renowned for its moisturising properties. It also soothes irritations, relieves tightness and improves the healing of particularly dry areas. This treatment is also rich in vitamin E and antioxidants that firm the skin. It also helps to combat the effects of free radicals responsible for the appearance of wrinkles.

To nourish the skin, you can applyhemp seed oil. This treatment strengthens it and protects it from dehydration due to the presence of essential fatty acids, such as omega-6 and 3, and antioxidants.

To accelerate the regeneration of skin cells, you can resort to therosehip vegetable oil. As a treatment and preventative measure, this ingredient allows the skin to regain its firmness and heal quickly. The antioxidants, vitamin A and essential fatty acids it contains contribute to these various benefits.

The hazelnut vegetable oil is ideal for nourishing and softening dry skin by restructuring the epidermis. Rich in oleic acid, vitamin E and omega-6, hazelnut oil regulates sebum production, tightens pores and rebalances the hydrolipidic film. Non-greasy and non-comedogenic, hazelnut oil is considered a dry oil that quickly penetrates the epidermis.
