Like a warm hug, massage oils lull your mind and nourish your skin. A few minutes before a shower or just before bed, rub some oil between your palms and massage your body with upward strokes to give skin a lift. Try oils with lavender or ylang-ylang to de-stress, apricot to reduce muscle strain and patchouli or grapefruit to detox body and mind.
Flip through the gallery for the eight body oils that you need in your beauty routine.
