Give your skin a glow this summer

Tuesday, 5 November 2013


Originally developed to help improve the appearance of scars and stretch marks (so important before getting into that bikini or costume) Bio-Oil can also help restore your skin’s natural oil balance preventing moisture loss and providing relief for dry skin – leaving it radiant all summer long!

Make Bio-Oil a part of your summer skincare regime:

  • Bio-Oil prolongs your tan: If you use self-tanning products but hate the way it dries your skin out, try massaging Bio-Oil all over your skin twice a day. It will lock in your skin’s moisture which gives your tan extra staying power.
  • Bio-Oil soothes: While you should be sun savvy enough to never get burnt, it does happen.
    Bio-Oil contains chamomile extract and calendula oil which are both renowned for their ability to soothe redness. A few drops of Bio-Oil in a cool bath and applied directly onto skin afterwards will help calm your skin.
  • Bio-Oil hydrates your delicate décolletage: Your décolletage often shows 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.  Especially important before wearing any low cut summer blouses and dresses.

Last word – prevent premature ageing by always wearing a high SPF and wide-brimmed hat before going outside!

    Bio-Oil is the best! See my review! What I did not know about it is that it prolongs self-tanning products (which I use). Wow another great reason to never be without it!
