Bio-Oil is a specialist skin care product, which I have being using for many years and I can assure you it really works! Not only does it improve the appearance of scars and stretch marks, it also helps correct uneven skin tone. It is one of the world’s fastest growing skin care brands and is sold in 19 countries across five continents including the UK, the USA and Japan. It is South Africa’s No. 1 selling scar and stretch mark product. Its enhanced formulation, which contains the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil™, also makes it highly effective for numerous other skin concerns, including ageing, dehydrated and sunburnt skin.
With Spring in the air and the promise of summer and sunny beach days on the way, Bio-Oil offers some advice on how to keep your skin moisturised, healthy and glowing this summer.
Cosmetic scientist, John Knowlton (C. Chem., MRSC, Dip. Cos. Sci. (GB)) says that one of the most important factors for a naturally healthy looking skin is the amount of moisture it contains. Besides using a good moisturiser like Bio-Oil, limited sun exposure, drinking plenty of water and making sure you use the correct skin care products will assist you in maintaining your glow this summer.
Here are some practical tips on how to stay safe in the sun while keeping your skin moisturised, healthy and glowing:
- Self-tanning: Use a good self-tanning lotion instead of sitting in the sun. Avoid dryness caused by these products by massaging Bio-Oil into your skin twice a day to lock in your skin’s moisture, and give your tan extra staying power.
- Delicate décolletage: Your neck and chest often show sun damage first, with sun-induced superficial lines and wrinkles caused by skin dehydration. Smooth them out with Bio-Oil’s super moisturising properties, which help retain the skin’s own moisture.
- Soothe the burn: While you should be sun savvy enough not to get burnt, if it does happen put a few drops of Bio-Oil in a cool bath and apply directly to the damaged skin. The Chamomile extract and Calendula oil in Bio-Oil are renowned for their ability to soothe red, stinging skin.
- Happy hair days: For unruly, thick hair prone to dryness, Bio-Oil will condition and soften your locks. Apply to damp hair after a wash and cover with a towel or hair-wrap. Sleep with your hair wrapped up to lock in moisture and avoid soiling bed linen. Rinse your hair in the morning and style as usual.
