Which one should you choose?
During the winter our skin tends to get dry and rough and our first thought is to pile on the moisturizer. Have you ever taken the time to think about what is in the lotion that you are putting on your skin? Is oil any better? We are going to answer your questions.
Both body lotions and oils are great moisturizers for your skin. However, there are some differences between using a body lotion and a body oil.
One of the main differences is that lotions tend to contain many harmful toxins. The truth is that many manufacturers need to add a lot of emulsifiers and fillers to make sure they get a creamy lotion. This is especially dangerous because the lotion is designed to penetrate your skin, which means that all of those harmful additives are entering your body as well. They might leave your skin feeling refreshed and healthy but what is it doing to your body?
We believe that what you’re putting on your body is just as important as what you’re putting in it. When it comes to a moisturizer it is important to stick with a green beauty product. This will prevent harmful chemicals from entering your bloodstream.
One of the main advantages of using oil instead of a body lotion is the fact that the oil will protect the lipid barrier of your skin. This ensures that the moisture is prevented from evaporating from your skin. Even though many people think oils as greasy, the reality is that they aren’t and they are easily absorbed on to your skin. Also, they can be used on even the most sensitive skin.
