Why body oil over moisturizer? Moisturizer does exactly what its name is – it moisturizes. They are great for replenishing some nutrients and giving that smooth feeling. But lotions aren’t as good at absorbing deep into the skin and can fade away throughout the day. Oils are more bioactive and can revitalize on a cellular level. And oils create natural barriers with the skin to help it better retain moisture and protect against environmental stresses. Sun Coast recommends a balance of both for the optimum results – moisturize daily, use body oil two to three times a week.
The best time to apply your Sun Coast body oil is immediately after your shower or salt scrub skin treatment. This will help seal your skin’s hydration and protect the newly exfoliated areas. Lightly pat your skin to remove excess moisture, but keep it damp. Gently rub in small amounts of oil until absorbed evenly. Let penetrate for 5-10 minutes before putting on clothing.
