Skin Care Sunday-Bio-Oil

***Disclosure-Sample product was received for review.  All opinions stated are based on my own personal experience.

Since 2008, Pregnancy Awareness Month (May) has been empowering pregnant women and new families to easily adopt healthy routines into their lives.  Through education, exercise, nutrition, wellness and nurture, PAM helps women make healthy changes for themselves and their families. 

As America’s #1 selling multi-use skincare oil and a must-have for moms-to-be, Bio-Oil is proud to support PAM for the second year in a row.  Together, PAM and Bio-Oil are helping pregnant women stay healthy from the inside out.  

This is me at my baby shower carrying my daughter.  I was huge but so proud of my beautiful belly.

Did you know that Bio-Oil helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone with the unique formulation of Vitamins A & E, Lavender, Calendula and Rosemary oils, Chamomile extract and breakthrough ingredient PurCellin Oil.  The essential product treats aging and dehydrated skin and protects against moisture loss. 

I was introduced to Bio-Oil late after my pregnancy and heard of many of my friends who used it and swore by it.  I am still trying to return to my normal self.  

When the body expands faster than the covering skin, the skin tears, forming a scar as it heals. These scars are visible on the surface of the skin as stretch marks.
The likelihood of developing stretch marks varies according to skin type, race, age, diet and hydration of the skin. Those most prone to stretch marks include pregnant women, body builders, adolescents undergoing sudden growth spurts and individuals who experience rapid weight gain.
Stretch marks are permanent in nature, and although Bio‑Oil is formulated to help improve their appearance, it can never remove them.

My total was stretched out and now I am trying to lose all that baby and excess weight I have gained.  

Bio‑Oil should be massaged in a circular motion into the stretch marks, twice daily, for a minimum of 3 months. During pregnancy, it should be applied from the start of the second trimester to areas that are prone to stretch marks such as the abdomen, breasts, lower back, hips, buttocks and thighs.

Even though I may not go to 100% baby smooth skin, next time I will know try Bio-Oil.
