Celebrity hairstylist Serge Normant has coiffed the hair of Sarah Jessica Parker, Julia Roberts and now fiery latin Modern Family actress Sofia Vergara for the cover of April's In Style magazine. Her hair looked gorgeously windswept and carefree as her bombshell persona exudes. Serge created the look below by spraying his Meta Lush Volumizer on her wet hair prior to drying. After creating soft waves with a 1-inch curling iron, he finished the look by spritzing on the Meta Sheer Dry Oil for extra shine.

«Body Oil: The One Simplistic Skin Regimen to Keep -

RODIN olio lusso Body OilAlthough applying body oil was known by ancient Romans and Hindis to be an excellent skin care regimen, many modern American women would probably cringe at the idea of adding oil to their skin. After all, each of us has seen dozens of commercials despairing oily, greasy skin. For years, advertisers have tried to convince us that our beauty routines should remove as much oil as possible from the skin, urging us to instead use lotions as moisturizers. However, many dermatologists and beauty experts now believe this approach is somewhat misguided, given the importance of oil in skin health.

What Oil does for Your Skin

Oil is so important for profiting and waterproofing the skin that the body produces its own oil. This oil is secreted by sebaceous glands that cover every inch of the body save the palms and the soles. Some individuals’ oil-producing glands are overactive, so they have oily skin. Others suffer perpetually dry skin because their sebaceous glands are under-active. In both cases, applying an oil such as Rodin olio lusso as a moisturizer actually normalizes the body’s natural production of sebum oil.

Ironically, many contemporary skin care products actually cause irritated, oily skin. By removing the body’s natural oil, they trigger the sebaceous glands to overproduce. These glands go berserk when they detect a complete lack of oil in the skin. Not understanding this, many women simply apply more drying skin products – alarming the sebaceous glands again. And the whole vicious cycle starts over.

In contrast, applying oil is a way to reclaim balance using the body’s own natural techniques. Applying a pure product such as Rodin body oil can help anyone achieve more naturally radiant skin.

Benefits of Essential Oils

Furthermore, oil-based products can deliver potent essential oils that foster luminous skin. Rodin body oil uses an apricot kernel and sweet almond oil base to deliver essential oils including calendula and arnica. Apricot kernel oil is known to penetrate quickly, leaving skin feeling dry and not at all greasy. It is excellent for the skin because it contains a large amount of vitamin E, which helps skin retain its elasticity. Apricot oil also contains vitamin A, which is excellent for mature, sensitive or aging skin. Sweet almond oil is another emollient in Rodin olio lusso; it softens and moisturizes the skin. Both calendula and arnica are known for their soothing, healing qualities.
