All About Oil

Don't you sometimes wish there was a magical product out there that could make your hair, nails, and skin look fabulous in one swoop? Well there is, and it's called oil. Oil can take the sting out of chapped skin (clove), detangle your hair (coconut) and refresh your senses (lavender).

Yes, we know, oil can be messy, confusing to use, and not everyone loves its slippery feel. But is is the ultimate, all-purpose conditioner, and when combined with the right ingredients, oil creates long-lasting smoothness wherever it is applied. And here's why:

Just like a bandage, oil works by keeping the good stuff (water) in and the bad stuff (drying conditions) away from your skin, which makes it a moisturizer. Oil is also an emmolient which is just another fancy word for skin softener. But don't get it confused with a hydrator. Contrary to popular belief, oils do not rehydrate your skin--only water can do that. Instead oils work with water to plump up your skin and keep it that way.

Here is a list of some popular glo products that contain oil and how you can use them.

glo essentials Infinite Shine Smoothing Oil: Contains argan and coconut oil to reduce dryness, frizz, and fly-aways. Also reduces drying time.

glo therapeutics Smoothing Salt Scrub: Grape seed oil, wheat germ oil, lavender oil, and peppermint oil all work together to lock in bath-time moisture

glo minerals Lip Ritual: Sweep apricot kernal oil, peppermint oil, thyme oil, and clove oil smooth lips underneath your favorite gloss or when worn alone.
