How To: Improve And Maintain Your Body's Beautiful Skin

Taking care of the skin all over the body is equally as important as the time you spend doing your facial skincare. How can you easily improve and maintain the body's beautiful skin? Natural oils! They are amazing for your skin’s health and a “moisturizer of choice” for the body to protect skin and smooth out imperfections.

Hydration and Moisture

Natural Oils in our Body Balms and Body Oils are your solution-- very concentrated formulas that provide a protective barrier on the skin, preventing moisture loss. Natural Oils, extracted from plants and nuts, are naturally hydrating and contain a wealth of vitamins and antioxidants that feed skin on a deeper level. Skin absorbs the oils deep into its many layers, whereas a traditional lotion or cream formulation maintains skin’s surface hydration on the upper layers. 

Our go-to for very dry skin in need:

Sublime Body Oil from Cinq Mondes: 

This organic, nurturing dry oil instantly restores suppleness and hydration to the skin and hair. Combining the rehydrating and renewing powers of sacred Noni extract and Monoï oils its the ideal solution for very dry, or irritated skin.

Texture and Absorption

Body Balms usually have a more solid or creamy texture that melts upon contact with the warm skin, leaving behind a silky, smooth finish that feels like a luxurious embrace. Body oils are quick-absorbing, feeding the skin intense moisture, without leaving any slip or greasy residue on top. Skin will instantly feel silky and smooth and they are perfect for massaging the skin.

Our go-to body balm to maintain hydration and nurture the skin:

Three Ayurvedic Oils Body Balm from Cinq Mondes: 

This balm is crafted using a blend of Sesame, Neem, and Boswellia oils, all famously known for their restorative and comforting effects. Comprised of essential fatty acids to nourish skin, its consistency is cream-like and non-greasy, perfect for daily moisturization of the whole body.

Body Balm or Body Oil?

Ultimately, the choice between body balm and body oil comes down to personal preference and skin needs. If you prefer a richer option to provide silky moisture to dehydrated skin, go for body balm. If you want intense hydration and a luxurious feel, opt for body oil. For those with dry or sensitive skin, a  silky body oil can provide the extra nourishment needed to keep your skin healthy and glowing. You can even mix and match both products to get the best of both worlds!

Remember, the key to healthy skin is consistency and finding what works best for you. Whichever option you choose, make sure to apply it regularly to keep your skin looking and feeling its best - especially as we approach the summer season and you are preparing to bare more skin!
