Why Is Oiling A Must In Your Summer Body Care Regime ?

Summer is the season of warmth and vibrancy, but it can also bring troubles along with it. Long showers, burning sun, and heat waves can cause the skin to turn dry, dull, or both. The solution? Oiling - a must-have in your summer body care routine. The Ayurvedic scriptures say, 'The body of one who uses oil massage regularly does not become affected much even if subjected to accidental injuries or strenuous work.'  

As summer approaches, it's essential to incorporate body oiling into your daily routine. This ancient practice ensures that your skin remains refreshed, radiant, and hydrated, ensuring healthy skin even in the extreme summer months.

Imagine you were a plant. Without proper hydration, you would droop under the scorching sun of summer. Your skin works in much the same way. It can become withered, fragile, and unattractive if not taken care of properly. But here is the good news: just like watering a plant can bring it back to life, oiling brings your skin to its former glory by rejuvenating it and creating a protective barrier, thus preventing moisture loss and imparting ultimate skin hydration

The Science Behind Oiling

Now, let's delve into oiling from a scientific point of view. Oiling has a revered place in our Ayurvedic scriptures. It has been an integral part of the Ayurvedic skincare routine for centuries. Even Ayurvedic spas heavily incorporate oiling in their treatments. Do you know why? The logic is simple. It's not just about moisturising; it's nourishing from within.

Oiling benefits the skin by locking in moisture into your skin, promoting elasticity, and providing essential nutrients to the cells. The result? Hydrated, glowing, healthy skin from the inside out.

But oiling has more tricks up its sleeve than that. It is also a detoxifier. Yes, you got it right! Just as a sponge soaks water, your skin absorbs oil and takes in its nutrients while releasing toxins. Just like a natural skin detox!

Why Oiling is Essential in Summer

Summer is like a two-edged sword; on one hand, it brings the pleasure of bright days and beach trips, but on the other hand, it brings intense heat and sun exposure, which may damage your skin.

Imagine walking across a desert without any shelter. Hot sunlight will dehydrate you and leave you tired out. In the same way, when your skin experiences summer heat, it feels this way. Prolonged exposure to sunlight can strip your skin of its natural oils and moisture, making it dry and damaged afterwards. This is where oiling comes into the picture.

Oiling protects the skin from summer heat, just like an umbrella does for rain. It seals in moisture, thereby preventing skin dehydration. It also helps maintain beautiful, summer-radiant skin all year round, even in the harshest of summers. Incorporate oiling into your summer beauty tips and experience miraculous changes in your skin.

Exploring Solutions: Best Oil For Body Massage

To get the best oil for body massage during summer, consider those that cool your body. Choose Ayurvedic massage oils, which are formulated to harmonise doshas, i.e., Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. They are particularly effective in regulating excessive heat due to an increase in Pitta dosha during summer.

Coconut Oil: The Cooling Moisturizer

Coconut oil is a must-have body massage oil for summer. It effectively cools and hydrates skin in hot weather. Its lightness upon application enables it to seep faster and provide deep moisture without clogging your pores. Moreover, coconut oil can address inflammation and heal mild sunburns, thereby making it a perfect summer oil. Applying this oil regularly results in smooth, supple, and healthy-looking skin.

Nalpamaradi Taila: The Skin's Friend

Ayouthveda Nalpamaradi Taila has always been the most helpful formulation in Ayurvedic skin therapies. It brightens your complexion while healing it from within by reducing hyperpigmentation and repairing sun damage, giving your skin a de-tanned glow.

This miracle oil contains a balanced mixture of turmeric powder, sandalwood powder, and traditional herbs, which provide excellent protection against the scorching sun. Use Nalpamaradi Taila every day, just after your bath, for naturally brighter, healthier-looking skin.

Badam Taila: The Vitamin E Powerhouse

Ayouthveda Badam Taila is made with 100% Pure Kashmiri Almonds, which are a rich source of vitamin E and essential fatty acids. These constituents make it an excellent moisturiser for skin hydration and protect it from harmful ultraviolet radiation. Its anti-inflammatory action helps calm down sunburnt skin, resulting in reduced redness and discomfort. Regular application of the Badam Taila can keep your epidermis soft, supple, and glowing.

Sesame Oil: The Detoxifying Agent

Sesame Seed Oil is a powerful detoxifier, penetrating the deepest layer of your skin and restoring elasticity and softness. This quality makes sesame oil particularly attractive to those with dry skin, as it maintains the skin's moisture while acting as a protective barrier from harsh environmental toxins. The result? Supple skin with an even tone that looks rejuvenated.


Ayurvedic skin oil, which is the result of herbal infusion or gradual oil extraction from herbs, can be used for a gentle massage to promote blood circulation, cleanse the skin toxins, moisturize and protect it, and help in skin brightening and de-tanning. It's an intimate summer late afternoon activity that allows the body to cool down slowly and prepares it for a restful night’s sleep.

But remember, oiling is just one part of the puzzle. It works best when combined with other skincare practices. So, don't stop at oiling. Keep exploring, but remember not to experiment too much.
