Dryness is something that many of us must contend with during cooler temperatures and while most of us are fully invested in keeping our faces hydrated, our limbs need some love too. This year, consider introducing a body oil into your routine and learn why your skin will love it, in this post.

What Causes Dry Skin?

Dry skin isn’t usually serious, but it can be uncomfortable, often accompanied by tightness, roughness, flaking, itching or redness. Severely dry skin, however, can develop deep cracks that may bleed.
Dryness increases during the winter when the temperatures are cooler and there is less moisture in the air. However, it can also occur in hotter climates with lower humidity and may be exacerbated by long soaks in hot water.

You can help manage dry skin with:

  • Quick showers in lukewarm (not hot) water
  • Mild cleansers
  • Humidifiers to increase moisture in the air
  • Moisturizers including creams, lotions and oils.

Body Oils Soften Skin Better

You may be used to using a body lotion, but body oils soften skin better. That’s because oils mimic the natural lipids found in our bodies, sinking in between skin cells, leading to a better, smoother skin surface, which helps to soften roughness. Oils also are more protective than lotions and much better at locking in moisture. These qualities make them especially beneficial for super-dry skin or eczema.

If you’ve never used a body oil before, you’re in for an experience! Body oils can transform the humdrum chore of moisturizing into something quite luxurious, making you feel as if you’re in a gorgeous spa somewhere (the Italian countryside?) instead of your boring bathroom. Scented body oils, like ours, just up the pleasure factor.

How To Use A Body Oil

Body oils absorb best when skin is warm and slightly damp, after towel drying. Applied this way, they can also help to lock moisture. They’re not restricted to bath time use only; use a body oil any time of the day to nourish and pamper skin. We like adding a small amount to our body lotion or cream to amp up the hydration.

Beyond their amazing moisturizing qualities for dry skin, try using a body oil as a bath oil or a hair oil. They also work wonders to soften cuticles on your nails.

I'm loving this deodorant from Apothekari! I'm very skeptical about natural deodorants because I perspire a lot and had always used antiperspirants. Wanting to go more natural, I've tried a few natural deodorants and this is by far the best. I can apply in the a.m., go overnight, and work out the next a.m. without having to reapply. I also love the smell. I have scent sensitivities and this citrus-ginger mix doesn't bother me at all. Super-happy with my purchase.

My recent order of apothecary

I’m so pleased with my products! My skin is already more radiant, pores are tighter !

Great deodorant!

I’ve tried many natural deodorants with mixed results. The Apothekari deodorant works GREAT, even when doing intense workouts. I also like the scent of all of the products. The skin of my underarms seems to have improved texture as well. I will definitely repurchase.

It works wonders! But strong scent...

This is the first and only natural deodorant that has kept me fresh for more than 6 hours. I put it on at night after my shower and it keeps me Oder free for around 12 hours. LUMÉ couldn’t do that for me! I wouldn’t buy this particular scent again though, I thought it would have a nice balance between the Neroli and Rose, but I cannot smell Rose at all - in my opinion it comes off smelling very manly. Next time I will order the lavender and bergamot scent.

The deodorant is great, gently shake and roll on. It’s very watery so I rub my arms back and forth to get it applied everywhere and then wait for a second in front of the fan before putting on a shirt. But it sooo worth it!!! Amazing deodorant and no rashes! My skin feels healthy. I have been using it for about a month.

Game Changer!

I've tried prescriptions and other products that claim to help with vaginal dryness and none compare to this product. So natural and no added hormones or perfumes. A real game changer for me! Also BEST name for this!
