Question: Can I use Bio-Oil in summer?

Is it alright to use Bio-Oil all over my body, especially in the summer months? I'm afraid I may fry myself because I am outdoors a lot.


Thanks so much for your question. Bio-Oil is a good body product to use. However, if you are applying it and then exposing the area where the product is applied to the sun, you are going to cause pigmentation and possibly increased redness, inflammation and sensitivity in the area. For this reason, if you like applying Bio-Oil, by all means do, but do so at night before going to bed. Rather use a good body moisturiser with an SPF during the day.
