How long can you keep massage oil?

What does a massage oil do?
Massage oils make it easier for your hands to move over the skin when giving a massage. They also hydrate the skin. This makes it easier to perform an intense sports massage or physical therapy on the problem area, as your hands will not rub against the skin in a painful way.
When should you use massage oils?
The best time to use a massage oil is when you are giving a massage. They not only hydrate the skin, but they also will help your hands move easily over the body without causing friction. This makes it easier for you to perform the deep and intense massage needed to aid recovery and relieve pain and tension from the body.
Why do you need to apply lotions during massages?
Massage lotions and creams are excellent for nourishing and hydrating the skin, leaving it feeling soft. They also allow your hands to glide over the skin easily, instead of sticking to the surface and causing painful friction during a massage.
What is the difference between massage oils and lotions?
Massage lotions tend to absorb more quickly into the skin than lotions, which is excellent if you need to hydrate the skin quickly. Massage oils are slower absorbing and perfect for deep and intensive massages.
