British brand Lumity is best known for its science-backed supplements. But its Skin Nutrients range has also been making waves ever since it launched. Its latest addition – the Skin Nutrients Body Oil – is set to follow suit. Here’s why it gets our vote…
What’s the latest?
Founded by a Cambridge-educated research scientist, Lumity is the name to know for science-backed supplements that will improve your health from all angles – think immunity, bone health, skin, stress, mood, sleep and energy. Right now, it’s the latest addition to its Skin Nutrients collection which we’re excited about. Lumity’s Skin Nutrients Body Oil is the body equivalent of the brand’s best-selling Facial Oil – a firm favourite among make-up artists and the A-list alike. A unique all-over body treatment, the luxe formula will deeply nourish the skin to repair damaged cells, hydrating and healing for smoother, more supple skin.
What makes this body oil different?
Like facial oils, body oils have come a long way since the greasy, sticky formulas of old, but Lumity’s offering goes one step further. A lightweight, nutrient-rich oil treatment, it’s packed with 32 natural ingredients to nourish your complexion. Easily absorbed, it delivers all the key nutrients your skin craves, while providing an all-over glow. The ultimate cold weather, head-to-toe elixir, it’s also concentrated with a unique blend of essential oils to relieve fatigue and calm the nerves.
Tell us more about what’s inside…
Infused with antioxidants, anti-inflammatory botanical oils and a slew of vitamins, it’ll fast become your go-to for healthier-looking skin. Inside you’ll find amla and passion flower seed oil, known for their ability to boost skin firmness and elasticity; acai berry, which contains important minerals, amino acids and vitamins to reduce the signs of ageing; and macadamia to support the skin’s delicate barrier. The addition of essential oils provides some extra self-care benefits – not to mention a fresh, delicate scent. Think vetiver, proven to ease stress, elemi to rejuvenate, and may chang to boost energy levels.
Who’s it for?
If you’ve used a body oil before and been impressed by its skin-smoothing abilities, that’s because the oils mimic the natural lipids found in the body. Like a serum, they sink in between your cells to create a smoother, more supple surface. Lumity’s iteration is especially helpful if you suffer from very dry skin. Brimming with nourishing ingredients, the oil has also been formulated to address fine lines as well as dehydrated and lacklustre skin, making it the perfect choice for skin that’s in need of a hydrating boost.
How should you use it?
If you’ve mastered your skincare routine but feel like your body routine could do with some TLC, Lumity’s Body Oil is the one to add to your bathroom shelf. It’s designed to transform moisturising from a chore into a mindful experience that’ll only take a minute or two. Use it daily to supercharge hydration levels in even the driest of areas – think the shins, knees and elbows – and improve suppleness and radiance. For the best results, warm a few drops into the palms of your hands and massage into the skin, covering your full body. For optimum results, apply post bath or shower to achieve the ultimate Lumity glow. Lumity recommends using their luxe Body Oil together with their Copper Dry Body Brush for an invigorating and indulgent full-body treatment.
