If you’re pregnant and you’ve a group of friends who’ve had babies, chances are you will have had Bio Oil recommended to you – this happened to me while pregnant, and indeed afterwards for any skin ailments you might have. BUT don’t assume Bio Oil is just for mummies, Bio Oil is for everyone – you too blokes (don’t worry it doesn’t smell of flowers and girly things) you can use it as well.
It’s really light and easy to apply, and I’ve found I never get too much when I’m using it. I have a really bad eczema/dry skin rash on my legs which never seems to clear, though Bio Oil does stop it feeling itchy, and definitely helps it feel much better.
Bio-Oil has been clinically proven to help with:
Scars: Improves appearance of new and old scars whether from surgery, accidents, burns, insect bites, scratches and chickenpox
Stretch Marks: Helps prevent formation of stretch marks during pregnancy and periods of rapid weight gain or loss and helps to improve the appearance of existing stretch marks
Uneven Skin Tone: Helps improve appearance of uneven skin tone caused by hormonal fluctuations, skin lighteners or excessive sun exposure
Ageing Skin: Helps smooth and tone ageing, sagging and wrinkled skin on both the face and body
Dehydrated Skin: Helps replenish the skin’s natural oils, stripped away by factors such as extreme weather, water with high chemical content, frequent bathing and the drying effects of central heating and air-con. Try massaging into dry patches such as nail cuticles, dry elbows and heels for targeted relief.
You can even apply Bio Oil to the face!
