Dry skin can be a real nuisance. It can cause itchiness, flakiness, and discomfort. It can also be a challenge to find the right products to soothe and moisturise your skin without causing irritation or leaving behind a greasy residue. That’s where body oils come in!
Our body oils are specially formulated to provide deep hydration and nourishment to dry skin, leaving it soft, supple, and glowing. But what makes House of Immortelle’s body oil truly unique are the ingredients that we’ve carefully chosen for their amazing skin-soothing properties. These ingredients work together to provide intense hydration, protect against environmental stressors, and promote healthy skin cell renewal.
Before we dive into the ingredients that make our body oils so effective, it’s important to understand what causes dry skin.
Body oils are especially effective at penetrating the skin and providing deep hydration. They’re also great for locking in moisture, so your skin stays hydrated throughout the day.
Many body oils contain natural ingredients that provide nourishment to the skin. These ingredients can help repair damaged skin, reduce inflammation, and promote healthy skin cell renewal.
One of the biggest complaints about traditional lotions and creams is that they can leave behind a greasy residue. Body oils, on the other hand, absorb quickly into the skin, leaving it soft and smooth without any residue.
Body oils can be used in a variety of ways. You can apply them directly to your skin, add them to your bathwater for an extra moisturising boost, or even use them as a massage oil.
The top 5 ingredients in our body oils for dry skin
Now that you know why body oils are so great for dry skin, let’s take a closer look at the top 5 ingredients in our body oils that make them so effective:

How to incorporate body oils into your skincare routine
Ready to start using body oils to soothe your dry skin? Here’s how to incorporate them into your skincare routine:
Step 1: Cleanse
Start by cleansing your skin with a gentle, fragrance-free cleanser. This will help remove any dirt and oil from your skin, allowing the body oil to penetrate more deeply.
Step 2: Apply Body Oil
Once you’ve chosen the right oil for your skin, apply a few drops to your hands and rub them together to warm the oil. Then, gently massage the oil onto your skin, paying extra attention to any dry or rough patches. This will help to hydrate and soften those areas.
When applying body oil, it’s important to use a light hand and not apply too much, as this can leave skin struggling to absorb excess product.
Step 3: Moisturise
If you need extra hydration, you can apply a traditional lotion or cream on top of the body oil. This will help seal in the moisture and keep your skin hydrated throughout the day.
Dry skin can be a real challenge, but with the right products and ingredients, you can keep your skin looking soft, supple, and radiant. House of Immortelle are proud to offer body oils that are specially formulated to provide deep hydration and nourishment to dry skin, and the top 5 ingredients we’ve chosen make them especially effective. So if you’re looking for a natural way to soothe your dry skin, give our body oils a try.
