Admit it, your winter skincare routine is infinitely more regimented than your summer routine.

But when you think about it, with all those days spent beach hopping and evenings spent drinking rooftop bars dry, we really should be giving our dehydrated skin plenty more love.

And so to literally save your skin this summer, here are some no-fuss body oils that take you from the beach to the bar and will keep you looking your best throughout the summer and beyond.

 

Clarins Body Treatment Oil

You’ll be hard pressed to find a body oil as packed with natural botanicals as this Clarins number.

Blended with rosemary, geranium and mint pure plant extracts, it helps firm, tone and improve skin elasticity, so you can bid adieu to stretch marks.

Rich in hazelnut oil, this treatment oil claims to softens your skin and lock in moisture after hours of dozing on the beach. Nourishing straight out of the shower, it also works amazingly with a few drops to the bath.

Endota Spa Rosehip & Inca Inchi Treatment Body Oil

Not your average body oil, this one’s USP is that it’s crafted entirely finger lime.

Bio-Oil

Much like taxes or a bad boyfriend, it’s a universal fact that if you’re a woman of this world, at some point stretch marks are going to make their ill-favoured presence known at some point in your life.

Lucky for us there’s Bio-Oil; a magic brew of plant extracts, vitamins and trademarked PureCellin Oil that clinically diminishes the appearance of scars and marks.

This skincare staple might be a favourite for pregnant women the world over but it’s for good cause; this silver bullet saviour for stretch marks (try saying that 3 times really quickly!) will not only noticeably chill out your lumps and bumps, long-term you’ll see an overall improvement in your skin elasticity.

And all for around $AUD30. There’s not many products out there for that can claim such results for such a reasonable price point. If only every negative in life could be buffed away so easily.

Where to find.
