When I was much younger I used to battle with dry legs and this was because I barely used to apply cream on my leg or any sort of oil on my leg after I figured out that this was thecause, I just needed to work on my feet because it looked like that of an old woman and then I decided to do something about it.
In this article, I’m going to be talking about the best oils for dry skin on legs almost all the oils here have already been used by me and I’m going to be giving my honest review on them all.
Here are 6 really good oils for dry skin on the legs;
Cold press coconut oil is my favorite oil for dry skin especially on my legs. When I was using this oil I could notice that my skin was glowing and also there was no dryness on my legs. From morning, I applied it just once a day and that was it.
This cold press coconut oil kept my skin moisturized all day Even though I was always under the air conditioner all day and I would not worry about dry skin. The only downside to it is that after you apply the coconut oil on your skin and you go out, it tends to attract a lot of dust and dirt. When having your bath, you notice that your sponge is very dirty especially when you’re washing your body around your feet because of the so much dust the coconut oil has accumulated.
I started using bio oil specialist oil to clear stretch marks around my shoulder and my arms.
Then, I decided to continue using it also I wanted my skin to stop being dry and this has helped a lot to improve the visible condition of my skin, although the downside to this is that it is so expensive.
I used to buy the bigger bottle for about 4,000 naira but currently, it has moved up to about 5,900 Nigerian naira.
Bio-oil skin specialist oil leaves the skin very smooth and moisturized and also leaves this very nice scent on your skin after you’ve applied it.
To make sure that you buy the original bio oil skin specialist oil, always look out for a scratch panel on the back before you buy it. Also, make sure you scratch the panel and send the hidden number to the pin written on the pack and then get a confirmation that it is the original one before you purchase.
Cocoa butter skin therapy oil with vitamin E is a very good oil that helps to heal damaged skin, scars, stretch marks, and uneven skin tones.
Cocoa butter skin therapy oil with vitamin E comes in a white pack which houses the bottle. The bottle is transparent and the content of the bottle is yellow.
It has a scent that could be likened to the popular cocoa butter scent.
It is a lightweight oil but sometimes it takes a while to dry on the Palm thereby leaving the Palm greasy for a while. Also, most people use this oil to massage their bodies as is good as a massage oil too.
Sometimes if you can’t always apply them directly to your body you can pour them into your bath water so that it seeps in right while you’re having your bath skin.
Even if you have dry skin I wouldn’t advise you to use this oil on your face, this is because the oil could clog the pores and could lead to breakouts if used on the face, especially for people with acne-prone skin types.
