The weather might be a little cold and gloomy right now, but we still live in a tropical country. It's waaay humid for anything that's too rich and sticky. But thanks to the skin care gods, our typhoon season skin isn't up for a drought. Introducing, dry oils!
Don't be fooled by that name. Dry oils are nowhere near as sticky as your average oil—hence the dry part. Because unlike body oils, dry oils are made of thinner oils (like argan oil!) that are lighter in texture. This helps your skin absorb it quicker without leaving a greasy film on the surface. You'll only be left with hydrated, glowing skin that smells amazing.
Dry oil also has other multiple benefits, such as anti-aging, soothing, and sun protection, all in one thin coat. The lack of alcohol makes it ultra moisturizing as well! And unlike body lotions, dry oils are largely multi-purpose. They can moisturize not just your body, but your hair and face, too!
