Whether you’re struggling with chilly weather or drying hot days, a delicious body oil is the perfect choice to invigorate your senses and soothe your skin. A Vogue, ELLE and Marie Claire favorite, the award-winning Apricot Body Oil blends fragrant fruit, moisturizing grape seed and hydrating jojoba oils for skin that is irresistibly smooth and supple from head to toe. 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 options to incorporate this body oil into your body care routine.
1. Give your Body Lotion A Boost
Mix one to three 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 dry skin. The coconut, shea butter and grape seed oil in the Coconut Firming Body Lotion help the skin look 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.
2. Relax In An Aromatic Bath
For an all-over skin conditioning treatment, add one to two 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 two 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 the oil onto slightly damp skin for deeper penetration of its feel-good ingredients.
3. Slough Off Dry Skin
Say goodbye to dry and flaky 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 oil adds a dose of deep hydration for gorgeous, velvety skin.
4. Remedy Dry Elbows & Knees
Our Apricot Body Oil is not just a luscious massage oil – it’s also fantastic for moisturizing dry, rough body parts including elbows and knees. This skin remedy compares to any body lotion, sinking moisture into your weather-ravaged skin and smoothing out uneven problem areas.
5. Condition Dry Hair Ends
Don’t restrict this oil to just skin care! If you suffer from thirsty, damaged hair ends, our Apricot Body Oil can step in as your emergency intensive hair conditioner. Dab a few drops of the oil on hair ends to rehydrate and repair.
6. Treat Ragged Cuticles
Nails and cuticles tend to suffer, especially during harsh winter months, developing a ragged and unkempt look. If you find your cuticles desperate for a little TLC, rub in a drop of Apricot Body Oil to smooth them out and nourish your nail beds. Your nails (and hands!) will look sleek again in no time.
