Une Nuit a Bali’s Precious Oil-------
For golden, beachy skin, self-tanner is one way to go. Another, subtler option is to apply a dry oil. These intensely nourishing elixirs are often spiked with essential oils and botanicals that seal in long-lasting moisture, resulting in a luminous, rosy skin tone that doesn’t look streaky or, worse, like it came from a bottle. The only catch is that some dry oils aren’t dry enough and can leave your limbs feeling a bit sticky. Une Nuit a Bali’s The Dry Oil is a unique find that sinks in deeply, imparting glow minus the grease factor. The secret? An all-natural ingredient list that includes manketti oil, which is rich in omega-6 and forms an ultrafine protective barrier over skin when exposed to sunlight; bran rice oil to boost circulation; jasmine absolute to brighten the skin; and ylang-ylang essential oil, prized for its aromatic and soothing properties. Try massaging a thin layer over your body before hitting the beach, or mixing the oil with a few drops of water to create an emollient lotion (it smells amazing). If you apply too much or just decide you want a more matte look, sweep on the brand’s The Massage Powder; its particles soak up any excess oil and render skin velvety soft with a delicate floral scent.
