This spring, why not add oils to your skincare routine? Beauty oils are a growing trend that shows no sign of slowing down. In a recent survey, more than half of Canadian women said they use or intend to use a beauty oil in the next 12 months. Of those already using oils, more than half say they are using them both morning and night.

Why are oils becoming so popular? According to TV beauty expert Chantel Guertin, people are starting to realize the many benefits of oils to help keep skin in top condition. “Whether it’s a cult favourite like Bio-Oil or a new oil-based skincare range like Lipidol, oils are a great way to leave your skin nourished and glowing,” says Guertin. “I love these oils because they moisturize, protect and hydrate.”

To combat the drying effects of bathing with hot water and traditional soaps, Guertin recommends switching to oil-based cleansers like those from Lipidol. “Typical foaming cleansers contain harsh agents that can strip skin of moisture, but Lipidol cleansing body and face oils hydrate while they cleanse,” she says. The Lipidol skincare line, available exclusively at Walmart, also includes leave-on oils for the body and face to be applied after showering, after shaving and at bedtime.

“The body heals itself when we are sleeping, so this is a great time to try incorporating an oil into your skincare regime,” says Guertin. “The Lipidol overnight face oil feels luxurious and, when you wake up, your skin looks like you’ve had a facial.”
