The result of this neglect is dry and chapped skin, which hardly makes the body glow healthily and naturally. In this article, we will tell you about the 10 body oils, which would help you, banish skin dryness once and for all:
  1. Sesame Oil: Revered as the “King of Oils” in ancient Ayurvedic texts, Sesame oil is helpful in not only combating skin dryness but also as a face wash and sunscreen.

  2. Olive Oil: A rich source of Vitamins E & K (natural antioxidant), Olive oil hydrates the skin by sealing in the moisture in its deepest layers. To use, have a warm water bath to open body pores and after toweling the body, gently massage a small amount of Olive oil over it. Leave on for 15 minutes and then wipe out excess oil using a clean old cloth. For best results, use it daily.
  3. Coconut Oil: A deeply absorptive oil, Coconut oil is a powerful antibacterial agent. Can be used thrice a week in a technique similar to using Olive oil.
