A beauty trend that has seduced us since the launch of Fenty Beauty, glittery body oil continues to be emulated in the world of bloggers and influencers. So, no need to rack your brains any further, because the secret of sparkling and luminous skin is already revealed! And if the great uproar of beauty essentials doesn't make you lose it, the body shimmer is yours! A new generation treatment, it takes care of nourishing the skin, while making it more radiant than ever. Exfoliation, body lotion or hydrating and shimmering lip balm, there are several ways to succumb to the shine trend. And if she was born on the red carpet, she now finds its place very easily in the bathroom to give a glittery tan to our silhouette.
Glitter oil for the body or the favorite beauty ally of fashionistas this summer, and those to come
Sparkling, scented and super pleasant to apply, the dry body oil has it all, especially in summer when multiple bedtime makeup becomes absolutely unnecessary. Threatened by the sea, the sun and the sand, makeup skin is therefore very difficult to keep intact. So, instead of opting for powder and blush, we prefer the body shimmer to enhance your complexion already quite tanned by the sun. To be applied on the body, face and hair, it is a real all-in-1 that allows you to boost your beauty in no time without having to bring your arsenal of cosmetic products with you. In addition, it has a lot of assets, one of which is its moisturizing and nourishing power. However, be careful with the dosage! Although it guarantees us a tanned complexion and satiny skin,shimmering oil can give the illusion of oily hair and an overly shiny T-zone when used on the face or mane. A few drops are enough to embellish them.
Gourmet, flowery or suave, the majority of glittery body oils are embellished with a captivating scent. After the launch of the famous prodigious oil from Nuxe, cosmetic brands have freely launched into the creation of their own version of the product. Yves Rocher, Fenty Beauty, Nocibé, Rituals… each to their own flavored and moisturizing body shimmer. Another special feature that will probably make you succumb to multi-purpose dry oil (if you haven't already) is its texture. In addition to hydrating and enhancing the appearance, the new beauty ally of fashionistas is devoid of the greasy film that we see in classic nourishing oils. As one of these names suggests, glitter oil is also dry! Its fluidity allows it to be absorbed very quickly by the skin. You can therefore apply it in the morning before putting on your clothes without the risk of shining or running during the day.
The prodigious glitter oil for whom and how to adopt it?
While they don't fall into the makeup category, dry oils with sparkle particles work just like a highlighter on the skin. They light up a few small areas or the whole body. And thanks to reflective pearls, they capture light to highlight your strengths and correct imperfections such as dull skin. Adopted during the day, the body shimmer enhances legs that lack light, sported in the evening, it embellishes a neckline to gain in glamor. In order to adopt it without going missing, it is better to turn to products with shades close to your natural skin tone. Fair skin tones can turn to a slightly pinkish veil, while dark skin tones go for tan or golden tones. And if multi-use glitter skincare has been a neglected trend before, now several complete ranges are dedicated to it.
What texture for you?
For each skin, its body shimmer! Undoubtedly, dry oil should be chosen depending on the type of skin and hair. Another surprising advantage is that it is very suitable for oily skin, which can generally be used and abused without risk. But while the trendy skincare is suitable for almost all skin types, it's best to choose it based on yours. Skin with a dry tendency should instead turn to oily or creamy textures, while combination and dry ones can benefit from a wider choice. The result after applying a glitter oil? Depending on the texture chosen, it will be more or less intense.
The treatment envelops the body in starry dust, while leaving the skin shiny and silky. Beaustistas love it! This encourages brands to compete to offer different sparkling products: exfoliation, body milk, lip balm, glitter face mask, etc. In exfoliation version, the body shimmer eliminates dead skin, while immersing the body in an endless bath of glitter. If you choose it in a spray or lotion version, it gives an ideal look for every day. Available in dry oil, it provides a “sun-drenched” effect, perfect for in town or at the beach. When evening comes, the glitter oil turns into a highlighter that brings intense golden reflections to the whole body. And the best part about it is that you can prepare it yourself at home!
