Body oils are ideal for summer skincare, especially at night. The best restore and moisturise skin overnight, undo any heat damage and even ease sunburn — they are quite the multitasker. This body oil, from Lixirskin goes one step further, working as a bath and shower oil too.

Use one one capful in the bath or, in the shower, apply to wet skin, massage and rinse. It means you emerge with silkier skin, making it an ideal base for deeper hydration when layered with a body cream. This Cerave one, with ceramides, is a Platinum favourite.

You can even use Lixirskin as part of your haircare routine. Massage and brush through hair, then leave overnight for deep moisture. Or use as a pre-shampoo treatment for hair or scalp.

A little goes a long way — you’ll be surprised at how long the bottle will last.
