HOW TO USE:
For your face
After you cleanse your face and tone it, take a pump of the oil into your palm and gently rub it into your face, neck and décolleté.
Adjust quantity as per hydration needs and refresh moisturizer whenever required.
The oil can also be used to remove make up – just take a pump or two onto a cotton pad and wipe it off. Alternatively, you could rub a few pumps onto your face first and then wipe it off with a clean cotton pad.
For your Body
As a full body moisturizer, the best time to apply is post-shower when the skin is softened and slightly damp. Take a few pumps or as required and rub it gently into the skin until it is absorbed completely. Refresh as required for individual need.
The oil can also be used pre-shower for conditioning the skin. Massage well into skin before taking a bath or a shower and wait for 30 minutes to wash it off.
As an aromatic relaxant, the body oil can add some oomph to your baths. Add a few pumps to your bath water before you get in, and experience the soothing rejuvenation of the Awakened Soul.
During winters or the drier months or even if you’re just suffering from dry hands and feet, this is a great emollient for such situations. Just rub the oil into the desired area. For best results, apply 3 times a day to keep dehydrated, rough and scaly skin nourished.
Gratifying good skin
A good body oil should be able to moisturize your skin well and help your skin retain that moisture. But, body oils are much more than just emollients – they are a slice of luxury, nestled in the simple act of keeping your skin healthy.
Get transported from your bathroom or bedroom to endless fields of lavender, from hydrating your arms to sitting among fresh, ripe oranges hanging from bowers. The warmth and comfort of your favourite body oil can be like an embrace from a loved one or its spicy and pungency could take you on an adventure through a tropical paradise – just brimming with delightful spa-like dewiness, an experience unto itself. When you rub that oil into your skin post-shower, it should make you feel more alive, awake, rested, refreshed, and renewed every time you indulge in some tender loving care for your skin.
The primary reason body oils rock is straightforward: they’re light and gentle on application, without any stickiness, greasiness or oiliness. Once they are applied (especially on damp skin!), they get absorbed fairly easily and well for long lasting moisture and healthy, happy skin. They form a barrier on the skin without blocking the pores, that helps in retaining within your skin. The vitamins and minerals, natural pampering ingredients and mild base humectants make it the ideal choice for keeping your skin feeling good.
They are also excellent all year skin helpers – in the summer they keep the skin relaxed and nourished through chlorinated pool water, rough beachy sands, salty sea water and environmental dryness. In the winters, they ensure skin doesn’t get stretched and dehydrated through deep hydration but also protect the skin from the abrasion of multiple layers of clothing, especially at a time when there is a tendency towards sensitivity. No residue, no roughness, only resilience.
You don’t need a reason to get super soft skin – especially if it is fresh, soul-soothing and only contains 100% natural ingredients!
