Body Oils to Nourish Dry Skin

body oils for dry skin nuxe la mer

I adore a good body oil. Not only do they feel super luxurious on the skin but they are so easy to apply. My rule of thumb is to apply them straight after a shower onto damp skin for optimum hydration. This Alex Edit takes you through my current favourite body oils for dry skin providing nourishment and a silky smooth finish – the ultimate treat!

Decleor Cica-Botanic Oil*

This is a fantastic body oil packed with nine botanicals (including jojoba and camellia) in a lightweight yet super softening formula. Perfect for dry skins but also a great all rounder as it doesn’t have much of a fragrance to it. One I reach for often. 

Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour All-Over Miracle Oil*

When it comes to choosing a body oil that’s effortless to use – this is the one. It comes in a spray format and offers incredible nourishment for the skin – as you’d expect from the cult classic 8 Hour range. And of course, as I’ve mentioned before, spray this onto damp skin as it will soak in so much better.

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Riche*

If you want to treat yourself to a body oil that exudes beautiful fragrance then the Nuxe edit is the perfect pick. I use the Huile Prodigieuse Riche which includes high levels of macadamia oil for deeper nourishment. As a dry oil, you get the benefits of intense hydration without a heavy or sticky feeling on the skin. I adore this range and the wonderful scents they infuse which can double as your fragrance of choice without the need for any other perfume. 

La Mer Renewal Body Oil Balm*

My final favourite is this ultimate luxe treat! I adore this body oil balm. A transformative texture that you apply as a balm but as you massage it in, it melts into this oily texture that feels like satin on the skin! You’re left with brilliantly silky smooth skin that reflects a healthy, radiant glow.
