Taking double-duty beauty up a few notches with its ability to solve a variety of common skin concerns, Bio-Oil is a must-replenish staple in our beauty bag, and one we find ourselves recommending to friends time and time again.
Discover the top five beauty problems we found Bio-Oil works hard to solve…
Although scars are an integral part of healing, it can be hard to see them as a positive thing when seeking smooth skin. With regular application, whether its acne scarring or a recent scar from a wound, regular application of Bio-Oil can help reduce the appearance of scarring thanks to its healing combination of Vitamin A and E.
How to: to begin the healing process massage Bio-Oil in a circular motion into the scar twice a day for a minimum of three months.
Expert tip: The formula works best when applied on new scars (although should never be applied before the would has healed), however it does have the ability to work some magic on older scars.
For Stretch Marks
Did you know when the body expands quickly (for example, when pregnant, body building, or during adolescent growth spurts) the skin tears and forms a small scar as it heals — these scars are commonly known as stretch marks.
Bio-Oil’s unique formula, which includes soothing Calendula Oil, healing Lavender Oil, and skin regenerating Rosemary Oil, works to gradually diminish the appearance of these scars to restore smooth, supple skin.
Good to know: The gentle oil has undergone various safety assessments and has been assured safe for use during pregnancy, meaning it can also be used as a preventative measure for mothers-to-be with concerns about stretch marks.
For Uneven Skin Tone
Fact: Uneven skin tone is the result of an inconsistent production of melanin in the body as the result of excessive exposure to the sun, or hormonal fluctuations.
Solution: The high concentration of vitamin A and E in Bio-Oil helps to reduce the appearance of uneven skin tone. Simply apply to affected areas twice daily for a minimum of three months to start to see improvements.
As they say, first do no harm, so remember to slip, slop, slap in the sun to protect your skin from further damage.
For Ageing Skin
Oils ain’t oils. Whilst putting oil on your face may feel counterintuitive, it can be the answer to control sebum overproduction and your best weapon in the anti-ageing battle.
Given that wrinkled skin is largely a result of the weakening of the collagen and elastin support system, Bio-Oil’s ability to plasticise and moisturise the skin makes it the perfect solution to improve the texture, tone and appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
RESCU Loves: The unique PurCellin Oil™ ingredient makes application light and non-greasy, so it won’t feel like your skin is weighed down.
As much as we love our sunburnt country, the dry climate can mean the lipid layer of our skin, which acts as a barrier to stop moisture from escaping, is sacrificed, leaving skin at risk of drying out.
Just like we supplement when our vitamins and minerals are low internally, Bio-Oil acts as a supplement to the skin’s natural oil layer, helping to restore its barrier function of retaining moisture.
Conclusion? Glowing, hydrated, and all-round healthy skin.
