How to Make a Body Oil the Easy Way
What can plant oils do for the skin?
Plant oils contain essential fatty acids that can influence skin physiology by their effects on skin barrier function. They have the capacity to moisturize skin and bolster the natural lipids in the top layer of the skin.
Topical application can also prevent water loss, provide anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant benefits. Finding the best oil combination for your skin may be a bit of trial and error as different plant oils have different fatty acid profiles and effects on the skin.
