Bio-Oil is no stranger to me and many pregnant woman and those who have gave birth before. It is my all-time favourite skincare oil during my entire pregnancy, postpartum and even normal days now. In fact, Bio-Oil is specialist skincare oil that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone. Since its global launch in 2002, Bio-Oil has won 222 skincare awards and has become the No.1 selling scar and stretch mark product in 18 countries, including Malaysia.
For most of us, we will have scars or stretch marks that have developed over the course of time due to cuts, acne, post-operation, burn incidents, pregnancy, or rapid weight gain/loss. These skin imperfections can have a profound effect on us, particularly if they are highly visible. This can shake your self-image, leading to a lack of self-confidence, a feeling of anxiety and a constant urge to hide these skin imperfections on your body. This lowered self-confidence can affect an individual’s life.
“The desire to encourage confidence in women & men is at the core of this new campaign. Many find that improving the appearance of scars and stretch marks can make them feel more confident. Applying a topical oil such as Bio-Oil, helps improve these skin imperfections that have made them feel insecure, which, in turn, can build up an individual’s inner confidence,” says Ms Low Hooi Wan, Division Manager of Nuvanta Sdn. Bhd., distributor of Bio-Oil in Malaysia.
Life is easier to traverse when you genuinely feel confident. Self-confidence is a feeling of being comfortable in your own skin, an understanding and acceptance of your strengths and weaknesses, and embracing your uniqueness. And the skin being our largest organ, plays a paramount role towards our self-image and self-confidence.
Applying a topical product such as Bio-Oil on the scars can help reduce its appearance and colour, thereby reducing the need to cover up.
According to a recent clinical study conducted on Bio-Oil, 92% of subjects showed an improvement in the appearance of their scars after 8 weeks. Bio-Oil helps reduce the possibility of stretch marks forming during pregnancy, teenage growth spurts and periods of rapid weight gain, as well as helps improve the appearance of existing stretch marks. A clinical study revealed that 100% of subjects showed an improvement in the appearance of existing stretch marks after applying Bio-Oil for 8 weeks.
Bio-Oil’s unique formulation, which contains the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin OilTM, ensures that the active ingredients are rapidly absorbed into the skin, without leaving an oily residue. Its formulation consists of vitamins A & E, and natural plant oils – Lavender, Calendula, Rosemary and Chamomile. Hence it is really pleasant to use it, day or night.
Continuous use of Bio-Oil can help minimize, reduce and lighten scars and stretch marks. For best results with Bio-Oil: Massage onto the skin twice daily for a minimum of 3 months. You will notice an improvement in your skin condition, and in turn, will lead to an overall sense of stronger self-worth, and build self-confidence.
