While taking a shower this morning, the fine lines of stretch marks on my belly caught my attention again. They have been there after giving birth to my son, Kyle. It has been almost four years since that momentous day of my life, and yet my pregnancy stretch marks are still very visible. I remember my own mom telling me that they will fade naturally in time. But when is that?
I started to feel a bit mindful of these stretch marks after booking a family trip to Boracay. We’re going to the island in two weeks, and yet finding a swimsuit for the trip is challenging and frustrating at some point. There are too many flaws to cover!haha
I’ve been feeling like a full-fledged grown-up lately. When I hit version 3.0 (30, that is), feeling beautiful always is not easy, especially since I’m beginning to see the signs and shifts of age. (I’m starting to have dark spots on my face and really poor skin texture) Don’t get me wrong here, we are all beautiful and wonderfully made, it’s just that sometimes, I do feel that my body needs more attention and pampering to make me feel, well, beautiful.
The young and beautiful Marianne of Nuffnang introduced Bio-Oil to me, a specialist skincare product that is said to be proven to help improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone. Could the brand be the solution to my qualms?
Reading the profile of the brand, I’ve known that Bio-Oil contains the breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil and a combination of vitamins and plant extracts (Calendula, Lavender, Rosemary and Chamomile) suspended in an oil base. Each ingredient is tested to be safe for use.
It was good to know that he product has passed the standards of the Regulation of the European Parlmant and of the Council of Cosmetic Products because there are too many unsafe products in the market now. I am happy to share that Bio Oil is tested to be safe even for pregnant women! It has been used by pregnant mommies around the world for over 20 years! How I wish to have already known the brand when I was pregnant with Kyle (but they say it can still fade my current scars anyway so it is still a relief to have known it even this late!haha).
|Tip for pregnant mommies from Bio-Oil: Apply the product from the start of the second trimester to the stretch mark-prone areas shown to reduce the possibility of forming stretch mark.|
Let me walk you through the clinical testsconducted to test the efficacy of Bio Oil. You’ll be amazed with the results:
SCARSAccording to the clinical tests, 92% of subjects showed improvement in the appearance of scars after 8 weeks and that significant result was observed in as early as two weeks! (ProDerm, 2010)STRETCH MARKSResults showed that 100% of subjects showed improvement in the appearance of stretch marks in as early as 6 weeks! (ProDerm, 2010)UNEVEN SKIN TONETests showed that over the duration of the trial, 93% of the subjects’ skin tone showed improvement in 6 weeks. (MEDUNSA, 2005)
I am also happy to share that Bio-Oil is an award-winning brand. Yes, it received not just 1 but 135 skincare awards. To see your skin improve dramatically, it is recommended that the product be used twice a day for three months. I’ve started applying it and it’s lightly scented and non greasy (I am applying it even on my face!).
So what are the benefits of Bio Oil?
- It improves the appearance of old and new scars.
- It reduces the possibility of forming stretch marks during pregnancy and improves the appearance of the existing stretch marks.
- It improves the appearance of pigmentation marks and blemishes and helps smoothen ageing skin.
- It supplements the skin’s natural oils.
