If you’ve been sleeping constantly, or slightly out of the beauty news loop, you may not have heard about the latest facial skincare “trend”: oils.  No longer do we run from oil, screaming like a banshee, while imagining zits exploding on our face. No.  As most of us know, that silly old wives’ tale about oil making you break out is FALSE. In fact, there are many (but not all) oils that are awesome for your face, and can even help clear up troubled skin!

For those Bionic Beauties who are just learning about skincare oils, below is a super helpful article from Total Beauty which outlines some benefits and some of the newest product releases…

Skincare 101: 7 New Ingredients to Look For

by Jami Summers on May 1, 2013 · 4 comments

Shopping for skin care products can be a nightmare. Especially for a self-acknowledged, obsessive label reader like me. Combine that with the fact that SO many companies do not seem to include all their actual ingredients on the labels (side note: smaller, indie skincare companies seem to be completely and wonderfully honest in their labeling; the bigger brand names are the ones I’ve noticed that artfully neglect some of their ingredients).

Ingredients lists are long, scientific and frequently boring; but here’s a quick list of seven new skincare ingredients to keep your peepers peeled for during your next online or in-store shopping trip!
