I can't believe it's already August. In the Midwest USA, it is generally hot this time of year. We are experiencing a cooler than normal time and I'm enjoying the weather. Exfoliation before applying moisturizers allows penetration into sub layers of the skin. I would suggest lighter moisturizers this time of year unless you are in a cooler and dryer area. The body oil mist is perfect right after a shower. The moisture on your skin combined with the oil helps it to penetrate into the sub layers of skin. This provides moist skin without a greasy feel. It absorbs so quickly it's hard to know you even added moisturizer to your skin.
