There is a rule when it comes to the use of a homemade moisturizer (body lotion): Always use it after you take a shower, especially if you have used a body scrub. The pores are open then and ready to soak in all the goodies that come in it.
Dry skin is best treated with rich oils such as sesame or olive oil.
Normal to oily skin should be treated with light oils such as jojoba, grapeseed, or avocado essential oils.
