Despite the fact that Bio-Oil is a natural and hypoallergenic product, there are still risks and it is especially important to take care of them pregnant and lactating.
Bio-Oil helps with severe striae due to daily use 2-3 times a day: apply to stretched areas of the body and rub the product thoroughly for a couple of minutes. A small massage will improve the circulation of the epidermis and speed up the process of getting rid of white stripes.
Cosmetic Bio-Oil is suitable for removing scars and scars - fresh or long-formed. It is an assistant in the fight against dry and dehydrated skin: use the product daily before bedtime.
Use during pregnancy reduces the risk of stretch marks; To do this, use the finished oil after showering on dry or slightly damp body skin. Apply it with light massage movements to areas subject to stretching (chest, abdomen, hips) and use daily 2 times a day for 3 months. Regular use of the Bio-Oil cosmetic composition will protect against the appearance of unsightly striae and increase the overall skin tone, nourish it from the inside and saturate with a complex of healthy vitamins.
Use cosmetic oil sparingly: this will reduce its consumption and apply the required amount for better absorption. By the way, the remnants of the product can be easily removed with a dry cloth, allowing it to pre-soak for 5-10 minutes.
Bio-Oil cosmetic oil is aimed at preventing the formation of striae with regular use for 3 months - this is indicated by the manufacturer of the goods. It is prevention that avoids many skin problems, for example, during pregnancy.
It is worth remembering that not a single cosmetic product can remove deep scars or scars, old whitish stretch marks and other defects that formed long ago and deep in the skin from the surface of the epidermis. Bio-Oil is created on the basis of natural oils, which, working in combination, are able to improve the appearance of the epidermis surface: smooth the skin, neutralize redness, lighten post-acne and pigmentation.
Almost every woman knows about the natural Bio-Oil product. According to the manufacturer, the product copes with almost any skin imperfections. Consumers note that regular, that is, daily use of Bio-Oil oil nourishes and nourishes the skin, makes it smooth, supple, improves color and gives radiance.
Many pregnant consumers of Bio-Oil cosmetics note that after daily use of the composition for almost the entire period of gestation, not a single stretch mark appeared on their body, but opinions are not so positive.
Dissatisfied consumers of the brand are sure that the price is too high for a jar of “vaseline” oil, its consumption is too large, it is absorbed into the skin for a long time and does not eliminate the formed scars. In addition, the composition has a sharp aroma and shelf life is too long for a natural product - 36 months. They recommend an analogue of Bio Aroma with smoothing and nourishing properties, based on olive extract.
Still, a greater number of reviews about Bio-Oil is positive - women appreciate its moisturizing qualities and recommend acquiring a larger amount in order to save a little on personal care.
