my new friend: bio oil
awrighty, i am going to be honest here.
growing up as a “fine” woman was not easy for me. when i was a kid, i loved to wear jeans and polo tshirt. i was a dark-skinned gal with two bunny-teeth, hair pretty messed up & easily identified with ugly looking glasses.
i felt like there’s a “boy” living in me, as i prefer soccer than barbie doll, i loved hanging outdoors getting myself tanned (in a non-pretty way), i loved playing & getting myself fell and hurt.
as i grew up, i realised that i have WAY TOO MANY scars all over my body and it ain’t looking good.
i decided to wear long skirt/ long pants to cover them up.
the funny thing is, although i am not into this “boy” thing anymore; i am just as clumsy as ever.
i hate to admit it but being reckless has just grown into my identity and my scars are not getting lesser, but more!
it’s been quite some time for me to search a good-quality & trusted product which can solve my stretch-marks & scars problem since it’s been haunting me and discourage me to wear the clothes that i love.
before being introduced to BIO OIL formally, i’ve encountered the presence of this orange bottle at my mom’s bedroom a few times. little did i know, it has this magical benefit which suits my needs!
so, what are really the benefits of BIO OIL?
in short, i’ll just say that it is able to improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks & uneven tone!
but it has more to offer, that is why i am here to help you out with the deets.
bio oil helps to improve the appearance of new or old scars, its unique formulation combines vitamin A and E which work with the skin to promote cell regeneration. this then will also improve the texture & tone of the scar skin.
speaking of new and old scars. it is somehow understandable that younger scar is easier & faster to heal than the older one. so to speak, you might want to apply bio oil twice a day for a minimum of three months to show result.
and you might want to apply more frequent to the older scar, just to let it absorb more.
something to note, though, bio oil cannot be used to broken skin. it should be used on a scar once the skin's surface is fully healed and leaves a mark.
and to those who might want to get its best result, apply bio oil by massaging into the skin in a circular motion until fully absorbed.
bio oil helps to prevent the formation & improve the appearance of existing stretch marks formed during pregnancy, teenage growth spurts or periods of rapid weight gain.
i do myself face this kind of problem.
although i haven't been pregnant nor in a period of drastic change in weight; i still have stretch marks in several areas and it annoys the hell out of me.
thank God bio oil's unique formulation combines vitamins A & E which promotes the formation of new collagen, assisting in skin renewal & increasing elasticity. this then will result to increasing its moisture content, reduces the itch of stretching skin & improves the skin's overall texture and tone!
let's say "bye bye" to stretch marks, then?
UNEVEN TONEwith regular application, bio oil helps to improve the appearance of uneven skin tone. this is due to the synergistic effect of the active ingredients in the product, specifically vitamins A & E
AGING SKINbio oil's formula combines the benefits of vitamins A & E to improve the texture, tone & appearance of fine lines & wrinkles. vitamin A promotes the formation of new collagen & assists in skin renewal, helping to increase elasticity while vitamin E protects the skin from the effects of free radicals which cause skin damage & premature aging.
DRY SKINbio oil’s blend of vitamins and plant oils provides effective, soothing relief from dry skin. vitamin E increases the moisture content of the epidermis. chamomile Oil provides anti-inflammatory benefits which soothe and calm the skin and is particularly beneficial for sensitive skin. bio oil’s breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil™ acts as an emollient, making the skin soft, smooth and supple. the formula is also non- comedogenic, providing maximum hydration without blocking pores.
it's time to glow, eh?
