Keeping your skin properly hydrated can be difficult and choosing the right product for your skin can be even more difficult.

At Saya we love body oils. They offer the perfect way to keep your skin moisturised while leaving your skin literally glowing with health.

Here's a breakdown on what you need to know about body oils...

What does a body oil do? 
Body oils seal in hydration and replenish the skin with essential fatty acids. They are like food for the skin.

Many oils like Argan, Almond or Jojoba (to name a few), are skin-identical oils because they mimic the naturally occurring lipids already found in our skin

Because of this, your skin easily recognises them and absorbs them quickly to help repair, moisturise and re-regulate the skins moisture barrier, which is responsible for oil production.

*Fun Fact* This ability to regulate oil production is why dermatologists recommend trying out a face oil when you have acne-driven or oily skin, no matter how counterintuitive it seems—the oil helps dial down your skin's natural sebum production since it no longer has to overcompensate.

This is the secret benefit to body oils and using one will leave your skin moisturised, soft, silky and radiant.

But will I feel greasy?

You may worry that your skin will be left feeling overly greasy or slick, but the right body oil (like those ones we named above) will actually soak quickly and deeply into the skin, leaving it moisturised all day long, especially if you apply it correctly.

Okay, so how do I apply a body oil? 

Simple! Apply on damp or wet skin for best results, preferably after a morning or evening shower, massaging for a few seconds. By doing this, the moisture allows the oils to absorb into the skin more rapidly.

Our Argan Body Oil is super luxurious restores softness and suppleness to the skin and won’t leave you feeling greasy at all. Its exceptional properties come from Argan Oil, a luxurious active ingredient that beautifully enhances skin and leaves it infinitely soft.

Argan Oil is highly rich in Omega 3 and 6. These essential fatty acids help protect and nourish skin, as well as inhibit dehydration and completely enhance the overall health of your skin.

Delicately scented with Mandarin Peel, Patchouli, Geranium Bourbon, Cedarwood and Ylang Ylang it offers an aromatic experience and full body glow.
