Warm this luxurious oil in your hands for a deeply hydrating, sensory massage – and if your blissful state leaves you craving more, try these unexpected ways to incorporate Apricot Body Oil into your body care routine.
With Valentine’s Day coming up, we can think of nothing more romantic (and downright relaxing) than a massage with our award-winning Apricot Body Oil. But when you’re done loosening up those tight shoulder muscles, you’ll find that this luscious body oil isn’t just miraculous for rubdowns and can be used in other surprising ways.
GIVE YOUR BODY LOTION A BOOST
Mix 1-3 drops of Apricot Body Oil with your favorite body lotion for an ultra-rich treat. We recommend pairing it with our Coconut Firming Body Lotion – another ELLE favorite – to deliver intense hydration to aging skin. The coconut, shea butter and grape seed oil in the Coconut Firming Body Lotion leave skin looking tighter and firmer, while the apricot kernel oil and jojoba oil in our Apricot Body Oil leave it feeling exquisitely soft and smooth. Massage into dry hands and elbows for an extra dose of long-lasting moisture.
RELAX IN AN AROMATIC BATH
For an all-over skin conditioning treatment, add 1-2 capfuls of Apricot Body Oil to your bath. Dim the lights and close your eyes for an indulgent aromatic experience. Muscles tired and aching after a rigorous workout? Add 2 cups of Epsom salts to your apricot-infused bath for ultimate relaxation. Once emerging from your heavenly soak (if you can!), smooth a few drops of Apricot Body Oil onto slightly damp skin for deeper penetration of this luscious oil’s feel-good ingredients.
SLOUGH OFF DRY WINTER SKIN
Say goodbye to dry and flaky winter skin by mixing a few drops of Apricot Body Oil with two shakes of Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant. Rub your hands together to create a creamy paste and apply it to dry areas as a gentle all-over body scrub. The rice powder and lactic acid in the Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant slough off dead skin cells and buff skin texture to leave it looking perfectly polished, while the Apricot Body Oil adds a dose of deep hydration for gorgeous, velvety skin.
