Do you have your winter skincare routine ready?
Whenever the temperature drops, my entire skincare routine is turned upside-down. Suddenly my skin is craving more moisture, my cheeks get dry and flaky, cold air and excessive travel seems to suck all the goodness out of my skin.
So what’s a girl to do?
I recently switched to a cleansing oil from Lipidol, which gently washes away make-up without stripping my face with the harsh sulfates found in many face cleansers. If you’re already wondering, no it didn’t leave my skin oily!
Here’s how it works: start with a dry face and massage Lipidol Cleansing Face Oil all over. The make-up will bind to the oil. Add a bit of water and let the cleansing oil emulsify and then rinse. A 125 ml bottle will only run you $8.97 – which is steal because I’ve bought designer cleansing oils for almost four times that price!
The formula is gentle and brought to you from the makers of Bio-Oil. The Lipidol collection launched as more and more people began to use Bio-Oil as an all-over body moisturizer – thus, the inspiration began from here.
Why oil? Daily washing with hot water and soap strips away the skin’s lipid layer which is the protective oily layer. As your skin ages, less oil is also produced – which is why Lipidol is so successful – it puts back what’s missing.
You can follow-up your cleanser with Lipidol Overnight Face Oil ($8.97, 50 ml) to give your skin lots of time to heal itself and chill out. I woke-up and my face felt soft and smooth. I also love applying the face oil after a long flight. The product works to protect skin against moisture loss and supplements the skin’s natural oily layer – which usually gets washed away with aggressive cleansing products.
Beyond the facial products, I tested out Lipidol Cleansing Body Oil ($8.97, 200 ml) + After Shower Oil ($8.97, 175 ml). Both products absorbed quickly onto the skin and did not leave an oily residue. You also don’t need a lot of product to get great coverage.
For the guys, Lipidol After Shave Oil ($8.97, 100 ml) is perfect for those with sensitive skin and works to retain moisture and relieve irritation.
