When it comes to your skin, the best products for your face and body, by far, are those made from natural ingredients. Skin care products can be a major source of toxins and tend to have a temporary positive effect on your skin with negative long term effects. There are many ingredients derived straight from nature that actually work better than most chemical laden products. Dilo oil, a rare nut extract found only on the windward side of the Islands of Fiji, is one of those ingredients and we've rounded up the top 7 beauty tips and tricks to help you incorporate Dilo oil into your natural skincare routine. From how to get rid of dry, cracked feet to taking care of a sunburn overnight, these simple tips are sure to turn you into a fan of this fantastic oil!
1. For Dry, Rough & Cracked Feet
With the change in weather and humidity, our skin can get pretty dry in the winter - heels included. You might even find yourself with dry, rough and cracked heels which, if left untreated, can leave you with itchy, painful heels.
How to care for your rough and cracked feet overnight:
- Pour one teaspoon of Pure Fiji's Dilo Rescue Bath Therapy into a basin filled with warm water and soak your feet for at least 5 minutes.
- Scrub your heels and any other dry areas with a pumice stone or foot file to remove dry skin and calluses.
- After your soak, moisturize your feet, focusing your attention on your heels with Pure Fiji Dilo Rescue Body Butter and cover your feet with cotton socks. Keep the socks on overnight and wake up to softer feet by morning!

2. For Rashes
A rash usually happens as a results of coming into contact with something (beauty products, soap, laundry detergent) that causes your skin to have an adverse reaction. The result can be an itchy, red or inflamed rash.
How to care for your rash:
- When you wash your skin, use warm water instead of hot.
- When drying your skin, never rub, always pat it dry.
- Spray the affected area with Pure Fiji Dilo Rescue Body Spray - it will help to soothe and hydrate the skin for 24 hours.
- Always let the rash breathe as much as possible - don't cover it with clothing for long periods of time.
3. For Acne Scars
Acne scars are the unfortunate, long-lasting after-effect of your short lived breakout. So what's the best way to repair them? Dilo oil! Dilo oil is a pure oil that is readily absorbed through the skin.

The result: supercharged healing and repair for your acne scars.

Bruises happen all the time, sometimes without us even knowing it! Whether it's from bumping into something or an injury, the chances of a bruise appearing increases with age.

Whether it's a mosquito bite, a bee or wasp sting or a tick bite, it's guaranteed to irritate your skin. Insect bites generally cause some swelling, redness and itchiness around the bite or sting.

Eczema is a common skin condition that can happen anywhere on your body, from the legs and arms to your feet and hands. It can be especially annoying on your hands as it can make doing everyday activities more irritating and painful.
