I am a big big fan of oils, whether that be a face oil, body oil, or lip oil…I love them all! And after a long day of work, there’s really no better feeling than taking your make up off, having a warm shower, slathering oil all over and looking like an actual glazed donut!
Adding body oils to your winter routine helps seal in moisture and aid our skin’s best defence against dehydration. Your skin deserves to be treated with a lipid-rich protective barrier especially in the colder months when we’re showering in steaming hot water and cranking up the heater. So let me introduce you to my current favourite body oil brand, Arithmos.
Arithmos is the latest beauty innovation to hit the Australian market, hailing as the ultimate curated bodycare collection in the way of decadent oil blends.
Founded by Michelle Wang, a Melbourne-based accountant who has taken a precise numbers-based approach to skincare formulation, Arithmos was created with the ethos of delivering truly moisturised, firm and hydrated skin, with the added benefits of mood-enhancing aromatherapy.
Michelle created the Arithmos range because of concerns over her young daughter’s dry and itchy skin condition. Having tried countless products with no result, Michelle decided to take matters into her own hands.
After extensive research on the benefits of botanical oils and attending workshops to make her own organic skincare products, Arithmos was born. The result relieved her daughter’s skin problems and returned her young skin to a healthy, supple state which further inspired Michelle to pursue the creation of effective and natural skincare.
The three plant-based body oils are designed to replenish ceramides (lipids that help the skin to retain moisture), which naturally decrease as we age. Each formula is hand-blended and produced in micro-batches to ensure the product is kept as fresh as possible.
Ingredients are seasonally sourced from their origin and harvested at their peak so you can reap the best benefits, from plant to skin. Organic ingredients are sourced as much as possible, and all products are cruelty-free, vegan, allergy conscious, and housed in eco-friendly packaging.
Treat skin to this decadent cure-all for sensitive, easily irritated skin. Redness is calmed, parched skin feels replenished and has a healthy radiance, while the bright floral notes of jasmine and neroli invigorate your senses. Use when in need of a little perking up.
