Thank you so much for tuning into this week's quick tip! Do you have a lotion for your body or face that you wish would hydrate your skin more? Did you buy a lotion that just doesn't seem to do much? Here is my life changing tip to get the most benefit out of your lotions/moisturizers:
Add A Few Drops Of Your Favorite Pure Oil!
Depending on the dryness and how large an area you want to moisturize, experiment with adding a few drops of oil to your lotions. This also works with hair serums! The most important thing is to make sure the oil has preferably only one ingredient--oil. Organic and fragrance free are best. However, if you can't find certain oils fragrance free or organic, this will still work.
Also, start with only 1-2 drops of oil and see how you like the results. You may want to add more or less depending on you skin type and condition.
Quick Warning: If you plan to use make-up over your moisturizer, you might want to skip this tip because oils break down make-up. This could lead to your make-up easily smudging or reacting strangely.
- Argan Oil (My favorite!)
- Coconut Oil (My second favorite!)
- Olive Oil
- Almond Oil
- Avocado Oil
- Vitamin E Oil (This is often vitamin E suspended in soybean oil, so it's not my first choice, but it does work).
Shine & Sparkle!
