 Oils: The secret to great skinIn-The-Spotlight

 

If your everyday beauty regime is leaving your skin looking dull and feeling parched, we recommend switching that soapy facial cleanser to a nourishing cleansing oil...


Don’t be fooled into thinking that all cleansers are created equal.

The cleansing agents in your foaming gel or alcohol-based cleanser might effectively remove dirt and excess sebum (the stuff that causes greasiness and shine) and leave your skin feeling squeaky clean, but they also strip skin of important oils, which causes dehydration, dullness and even dermatitis.

Oils are effective cleansers as they work in a different way.
Using an oil to cleanse your skin sounds counterintuitive, but because dirt and make-up is predominantly oil-based, an oil cleanser will bind to the oily material and gently dissolve the impurities, without removing the skin’s natural oily layer.

Lipidol Cleansing Face Oil (R79,95 at selected Clicks) is produced in South Africa by the same people behind the cult beauty brand Bio-Oil. Scented with natural plant extracts, Rosemary and Niaouli oils, it smells like clean in a bottle. Lipidol Cleansing Face Oil contains four intensely moisturising natural oils - Argan, Sesame Seed, Saw Palmetto and Neem - that are ultra-effective at dissolving impurities and leave skin feeling healthy. It’s non-comedogenic and gentle on sensitive skin.

Three steps to coming clean with Lipidol Cleansing Face Oil.
1. Massage a small amount of oil with dry hands onto a dry face. The dirt and make-up will bind with the oil.
2. Add a little bit of water and continue massaging. The oil will emulsify to form a watery cream.
3. Rinse off.


Great skin is #ClearlyLipidol
