ADVERTORIAL: Massage your way to great skin with Bio-Oil

Tuesday, 29 May 2012

How to apply Bio-oilWhether you’re concerned about uneven skin tone, dehydrated skin or scars and stretch marks, Bio-Oil offers a solution for you. As with any beauty or skincare product, how you apply it affects how well it works. With Bio-Oil the key is to massage, as massaging stimulates your skin and allows faster absorption of Bio-Oil. Apply twice a day and make sure it’s the first thing applied.

Here are more of our top tips towards achieving maximum results:
Apply Bio-Oil twice daily onto cleansed skin for a minimum of three months.
• Scars: for best results, massage Bio-Oil into the area with your fingertips in a circular movement, twice daily for at least three months (once the wound is healed). Bio-Oil may be used on top of micropore tape (used to keep scar movement minimal) allow it to absorb and repeat twice daily.
• Stretch marks: to help prevent pregnancy related stretch marks, apply twice daily from the first trimester, throughout your pregnancy and after your baby is born.

    Bio Oil is a great product I used it when I was pregnant and I was left with no stretched marks. I even used if for pigmentation on my face and that also worked.
