Body Oils 101

With the cold February air, nothing beats soft, silky skin and body oils are a sure way to get there. Especially when you are expecting, body oils can help with stretch marks, sooth your irritated, dry skin and uplift your spirits.  Most have a smaller ingredient list than creams and lotions, and are based primarily on natural oils like almond, argan, grapeseed, sunflower and avocado oils.  Here are some picks that I really love and recommend for a “spa” experience at home!  Or even better yet, for Valentine’s Day use body oil for a romantic night in.
