In the summer my skin becomes more dry and moisturizers for the body are not enough. They oft contain fragrances that create dermatitis in contact with my sweat. But I discovered a very interesting solution...
Huile Sensorielle by the French Lierac (in Italy it is sold in pharmacies, but you can also find it online) is an elixir composed of four oils (almond, sesame, argan and grape seeds) that can be spread on body, hair, even on the face.

It's a pretty light oil, the scent delicate, which is why it can use it on the face (in the evening as beauty treatment it is very good). I tried to spray it around the eyes and lips: It soothes and regenerates the skin without irritating these very delicate areas.
There is also the Eau (water) version, alcohol-free, lighter and more aromatic than the oil. Both formulations contain in olfactory notes three white flowers: Jasmine, gardenia and camellia warmed by wood.

For my dry skin, oil is the ideal, I use it everywhere, even to soften feet and make hands more elastic. The water can be used instead as a light scent :)

And now, the hair! To nourish and fight dryness I use Huile Sensorielle or Huile Sublimante by Phyto (this brand, along with Lierac, is part of the giant Ales Groupe, a very careful company in the search for active plants).
This elixir, composed of perilla, Buriti, annatto, camellia seed and corn oil, can be used as a mask for hair (leave it for 10 minutes) before washing. Who, like me, has fine hair, should not use too much product, otherwise hair will weigh down. To see the results, go and look at the last picture ... Huile sublimating can also be used on the body, it nourishes the skin well.
Huile Protectrice instead (pictured above) should be used before going to the beach or pool, especially if you have colored hair. It forms a film on the hair avoiding the color oxidizes, it helps moisturize and soften the hair, thanks to wax oil, calendula and willow extract, rosemary and castor oil.
