Natural oils that can replace body milk

Summer is a great time of the year when we become healthier and more active. Still, we have also be prepared for some inherent challenges of this season. A little dose of UV rays can positively affect our health. However, too much sun bathing can dry out or burn the skin and cause severe damage.

The molecules of this oil are relatively small, so it is easily absorbed into the skin. This means that it hydrates and allows our skin to breathe. Macadamia oil also contains a number of antioxidants, vitamin E and squalene. It also protects against harmful sun exposure and has the antibacterial properties. 

Shea Butter
This butter effectively helps to get rid of the stretch marks, so women often use it as a natural tool for preventing stretch marks during the pregnancy. Shea butter is rich in three useful vitamins – A, E and F. These vitamins speed up the healing processes of the burns and wounds. This oil is very thick and creamy.
