Using a body oil to moisturize is one of my favorite indulgences in the summertime. They are best applied fresh out of the shower, mixing the oils with the water droplets on your skin and then allowing yourself to air dry. Since I live in a colder climate (Chicago), I can really only stand to be wet and nude that long in the warmer months. If you can take a few minutes to air dry, this is a truly amazing way to get soft-as-silk skin. You can also use body oils in a bath or for massage and they are terrific for pregnant bellies to prevent stretch marks and relieve itchiness. Here are 7 delicious body oils to try.- By Sonya Lee Benham
