If you haven’t tried the shimmery body oils during the summer season, you’re missing out, there is nothing as good as slathering your skin with shimmery body oil for an absolute treat this season.
Shimmery body oils are not liquid highlighters, liquid highlighters are full coverage body shimmer that adds a total glow to your skin and enhances your bone structure while shimmery body oils are simply nourishing body oils with a hint of sheer shimmer and tint for a natural glow while fighting dryness. To simply put, after applying your moisturizer in your body care routine, some days, you might need extra help to seal the moisture you’ve just gained from your moisturizer (so it does not evaporate so quickly), that’s where body oil comes in, but because it’s summer, you want to cheat some natural glow to your skin, so you go for a shimmery version of body oil (because the summer season is the season we expose our skin the most, so why not show it off giving the illusion of perfection).
Shimmery body oil keeps your skin hydrated while giving it a natural glow, and what makes a good shimmery body oil is when it’s non-greasy, lightweight, dries quickly ( so it doesn’t stain your clothes), and contains nourishing ingredients like hyaluronic to attract moisture to your skin giving it a plumpy finish, Vitamin C to brighten the skin, essential oils like squalane oil, argan oil, mango oil, coconut oil, marula oil, almond oil e.t.c. to strengthen your skin elasticity, seal in moisture, e.t.c., seed extracts that’re full of anti-oxidants – antioxidants protects your skin from free radicals – free radicals are the daily danger our skin gets exposed to, like UV rays which are environmental aggressors and chemical aggressors like the type used in making your skincare products and stressors within the body- ( a good shimmery body oil comes with skincare benefits to simply put).
A good shimmery body oil also contains a finely milled shimmer to dispense the right amount on your body during application. they come in a variety of tints some gold, bronze, or clear.
When it comes to applying your shimmery body oil, you can apply it with the palm of your hands or use a body brush for an instant result.
