3 Benefits of a Dry Body Oil: Your New Best Friend for Glowing Skin
When it comes to body care, relieving dry skin can feel like a catch-22. Smothering dry skin with body lotion often leaves skin greasy and actually hardly ever fully absorbs. It seems like the best option is just to endure ashy skin—until now! Enter TRADEMARK, your signature dry body oil for superfast absorption and enhanced hydration for thirsty skin.
What Even is a Dry Oil, Anyway?
Dry oils are multitasking wonders loved by dermatologists and naturopathic doctors alike for treating a host of skincare concerns—from combating acne to soothing eczema and everything in between.
This special group of lightweight oils absorb quickly and deeply into the skin—locking in moisture without leaving that dreaded greasy feeling afterwards. They are the opposite of wet oils, like mineral oils, which sit on top of skin and don’t absorb or moisturize, ultimately clogging pores and causing breakouts.
At SWAY, we are devoted to innovating and crafting only the very best formulations for our skincare products. Here are 3 benefits you need to know about dry body oils:
1. They are Antioxidant-Rich and Ultra-Nourishing
Dry oils are plant-based and biologically close to the lipids that exist naturally in our skin. They are able to support the skin’s protective barrier and keep moisture locked in. We use only the highest quality cold-pressed seed and nut natural dry oils packed with antioxidants to rejuvenate and nourish dry skin. TRADEMARK contains six plant oils and six botanical extracts carefully selected to treat a wide range of skin concerns, which comprise the base oil—before it’s even been customized to meet your unique needs.
2. They are Super Lightweight and Absorb into the Deepest Layers of the Skin
Because they are so similar to the biological makeup of skin, your body is able to recognize and process dry oils. This means fast absorption and no greasy feeling, but maximum moisture. Dry oils are able to penetrate to the deepest layers of the skin making them the best body oil for anti-aging and dry skin. We went a step further with TRADEMARK, which gives you the option to customize your dry body oil with a boost for your specific skin concern. Dry oils help the boosts reach their maximum potency and are the best solution for glowing skin all over your body.
“I love dry oils because they absorb fully into the skin with no greasy feeling afterward, as opposed to wet oils — such as mineral oils like Johnson’s baby oil — that don’t absorb as well and sit on top of the skin,” says Dr. Anna Karp, a dermatologist at The Skin Institute of New York.
3. They are the Perfect Canvas for Customizing Your Own Dry Body Oil
Though they have so many benefits of their own, dry oils are the perfect canvas for customizing your own body oil. They are weightless and unscented, which means they can soothe even the most sensitive skin without irritation. TRADEMARK has been formulated with over 10 precious botanical oils and extracts to target and help improve the appearance of stretch marks, cellulite, aging skin, uneven skin tone, and dry, damaged skin. Add your own scent with one of our many aromas—or you can simply choose none if you’d prefer for your dry body oil to remain unscented. Complete your TRADEMARK dry body oil with delicate aromatic floral and supercharged minerals enrichments—all with their own set of uniquely powerful benefits. (We have even added options for the ultimate dry body oil shimmer!) Customize the perfect dry body oil to meet all your skincare needs.
