IT’S ALL ABOUT THE OIL
The other morning I was jabbering to my son whilst he was getting ready for work and I noticed him using Bio-Oil Specialist Skincare Oil, (he has a scar on his face from an ice hockey altercation) and I realized how prominent Bio Oil has featured over the years in my household! This year marks Bio Oil’s 30th birthday in South Africa and I thought I’d give it some love as it ticks all the boxes as a multi tasking product, good price point, and value for money, so here goes:
Bio-Oil’s unique formula contains key ingredient PurCellin Oil™, a highly effective oil for aging and dehydrated skin and derives from ducks to keep their feathers flexible and waterproof. Other ingredients include Vitamin A and E, Lavender oil for its calming properties and destroying bacteria; Calendula oil counteracts dry skin, acting as a strong moisturiser; Chamomile oil has healing and anti-inflammatory properties and evens out pigmentation issues; Rosemary oil reduces inflammation, promoting healthy micro wound so that skin remains resilient and healthy.
So what is Bio-Oil Specialist skincare oil good for? Well, a heap of things, but best known to help with scarring and stretch marks. Despite being in SA for thirty years it only launched globally in 2002, and has since gone on to win 349 International skincare awards and is the number one selling scar and stretch mark product in 24 countries! Loved by local and International celebs like Sienna Miller, Victoria Beckham, Natalie Portman, Candice Swanepoel, Cindy Nel, Tshedi Mholo, as a trusted choice to help prevent stretch marks.
It’s also brilliant for teenagers who are prone to rapid growth spurts or weight changes, marks and blemishes caused by hormonal fluctuations, excessive sun exposure and aging skin to help with fine lines and wrinkles. Bio-Oil also helps dehydrated skin by supplementing skins natural oils that get stripped from frequent bathing and drying effects of central heating and air conditioners, extreme weather and water with chemical content.
I also like to keep my cuticles nourished by rubbing it in; when my heels get a bit dry and cracked, I sleep with a pair of socks on after applying the oil and see and feel a noticeable difference. I have dry hair so sometimes apply Bio-Oil to mid and ends of hair; a lip smoother, and of course ‘back in the day’ before water shortages, I’d pop a drop or two into my bath for smooth and soft skin. A drop or two goes a long way!
