Overheard: A woman telling her friends about a skincare product that she LOVES. She said, “I want to rub it all over my body!”
We smiled – because Kate Ryan Skincare has a skincare product that is meant for just that – Botanical Body Oil Blend CAN (and should) be rubbed all over your body!
When we think about anti-aging skincare products, we almost always have our face in mind. We pay a little more attention to our neck and chest, but we are focused on our face and how we can make it appear more youthful.
However, the skin on other parts of our body ages as well. Think about it. Your hands (and feet during warmer months) along with your arms and legs are often exposed – and they show aging just as much, if not more, than your face.
Plus, I don’t think I’m alone with arms and legs (my list can go on) that don’t look like they did 10, 20 – or even 5 – years ago! Those wrinkles above your knees from sitting at sports games anyone??!?
The thing is: we are all going to age – but there are ways that our aging can be done beautifully and with grace.
That’s why Kate Ryan Skincare improved the formula of Botanical Body Oil Blend – and gave it time-rewinding “powers!” The old formula didn’t change – we just added to it to make it even better!
Why Should I Use Body Oil? How is Body Oil Applied?
Body oil can be used on all skin types, including oily skin and for people with acne.
Benefits of Body Oil
- Regulates oil production
- Improves skin barrier function
- Seals in hydration; absorbs quickly
How to Apply Body Oil
Body oil works best when applied to damp skin. Ideally, after showering or bathing, gently pat your skin with a towel to dry it somewhat and then apply body oil.
Rubbing body oil on dry skin works too – it may just take longer to absorb and you aren't benefiting from that hydration boost when your skin is full of moisture from your shower.
Does Body Oil Replace Lotion?
Body oil can replace lotion and cream. Both body oil and lotion moisturize the skin, but body oil keeps the skin moisturized longer.
For those who enjoy baths, body oil can be added to your bath to start moisturizing while you relax (this is not possible with lotion!)
Some people may want to continue using a lotion with healing properties that are specific for their skin.
Why is Kate Ryan Skincare’s Botanical Body Oil Blend Good for Anti-Aging?
Botanical Body Oil Blend now contains a variety of anti-aging actives, including antioxidants, Vitamin C, and Hemp Oil.
Healthy oils have big skin benefits including supplying your skin with healthy lipids and antioxidants, slowing the signs of aging, and creating a protective barrier. The rich color of our botanical oil is due in part to the naturally occurring antioxidants. Antioxidants protect our skin from the harmful buildup of free radicals that damage and age our skin. Here are some of the nourishing oils in our newest product:
- Hemp Seed Oil
- Evening Primrose Oil
- Jojoba Oil
- Argan Oil
- Apricot Oil
- Linseed Oil
- Pomegranate Oil
We mentioned this above, but it deserves repeating: this is a skin care product that you can rub all over your body (make sure to put it on your nails, too!)
Antioxidants are the foundation of Botanical Body Oil Blend (and all KRS products)
Antioxidants have powerful anti-aging benefits including firming the skin, fighting wrinkles, soothing the skin, and helping the skin repair itself. Antioxidants and their benefits for your skin are detailed in this article.
Astaxanthin is a superstar antioxidant included in this formula. Astaxanthin is a carotenoid that provides powerful protection against premature aging from free radical damage as well as anti-inflammatory benefits. Combined with Vitamin C and Vitamin E, your skin will be glowing!
Vitamin C is a powerful anti-aging antioxidant in skincare
Vitamin C is a well-known antioxidant that brightens the skin, helps increase collagen production, and protects the collagen that you already have. You can read more about Vitamin C here.
Hemp Oil is a cannabis product that is now an ingredient in many skin care products
Hemp Seed Oil has more recently become a popular skincare ingredient and hot topic in skincare. Hemp oil is moisturizing, has antioxidant benefits and anti-inflammatory properties, and may have antibacterial properties as well. Hemp has been shown to be especially helpful for calming itchy skin - in addition to moisturizing, hemp has been shown in studies to influence the way your skin responds to the itch sensation. Very Well Health discusses Hemp Oil in this article.
