Yoh!! Did you can use Bio-Oil on your face and nails! How about that. For those travelling and those experiencing this piercing Nairobi sun we know what and how sunburn and skin peeling is. Arrgghh! and let’s not forget people with questionably weak nails like mine, this is more than good news.
And that is not all….. 🤓
According to Winnie Taylor, health and skincare therapist and CEO at Body Evolution by Winnie, “It is important to go beyond basic skin care as you grow older and protect your skin from weather elements by using sunscreen, wearing hats and using age-defying products that will create the oil and moisture balance to keep your skin glowing with confidence and positivity.”
So let’s look at more uses of Bio-Oil which have been discovered by its users
1.Sun burn: If you forgot to apply sunscreen or didn’t apply enough, the healing properties of Calendula Oil, Rosemary Oil, Chamomile Oil and vitamins A and E in Bio-Oil, help to nourish and soothe sunburnt and over exposed skin.
2.Shaving: Shaving is one of the many chores that accompany a good beach day or swim session. For a super smooth shaving experience, try adding Bio-Oil to your regime. Supplementing the skin’s oily layer that is stripped away by shaving, Bio Oil helps eliminate in-grown hairs and that horrible after-shave rash.
3.Dehydrated Skin: Bio-Oil helps lock in moisture and supplements the skin’s natural oil levels, which are easily depleted via sun exposure, swimming and air conditioning. Use Bio-Oil as a daily moisturizer to keep skin hydrated, soft and supple while highlighting your summer glow.
Ashy is not cute please!!!!
4.Uneven skin tone: High in antioxidants and vitaminsA and E, Bio-Oil helps to improve the appearance of pigmentation marks and blemishes caused by excessive sun exposure and hormonal fluctuations.
5. Hair: Tame frizzy hair caused by humidity by applying Bio-Oil to the ends of your hair. Apply a couple of drops (remember, a little goes a long way) and use your fingers to detangle knots and moisturize sun-dulled locks.
6. Nails: When cuticles are exposed to excessive sun, chlorine or saltywater, they become dry, chapped and damaged. Massage vitamin E-rich Bio-Oilinto your cuticles and manicured nails to protect and repair damage, keeping them healthy and strong.
7. Scars: Bio-Oil helps to improve the appearance of scars – from majorsurgical scars to minor cuts, bites and grazes – so you can wear your skin-bearing summer wardrobe with confidence. Massage Bio-Oil into the scartwice a day, for a minimum of three months to soften and improve the appearance of the scar.
8. Travel size: Just intime for the holidays, Bio-Oil is now available in a new 25 ml travel-size pack (yes, it already is in my handbag), ideal to keep in your beach bag or travel bag,making it perfect for on-the-go application.
So much of how we feel about ourselves is wrapped up in our appearance. Not only does our skin hold our body together, it also holds our emotions together.
Listen to your Skin
Those of us who suffer from or treat skin ailments such as rosacea, acne, psoriasis and eczema, understand the emotional as well as physical effect skin has on our wellbeing. Blemished skin can make us depressed, unwilling to leave our homes and be around others. This may result in missed work or school, anxiety, stress and a limited our social life.
The solution involves a combination of emotional and physical treatments. Of course, most of us could benefit from as hot of self-confidence about our appearance, but the truth is, this kind of confidence comes from within.
That said, there are many natural methods to combat the maladies listed above as well as maintain healthy skin and slow the aging process. Invest in your skin to boost your overall physical and emotional health.
I want to go on and on as to why your skin is important but everyday is a Saturday this December so I’m going to keep it brief.
Skincare is more than just applying oil. It requires emotional, mental and physical wellness too. For this holiday season, appreciate your body by visiting Body Evolution by Winnie for that Massage Therapy (you may not know you need this till you have it and trust me your body will thank you), Ozone Therapy and any other beauty services because you deserve it.
Time to go on that holidayyy… but don’t leave your Bio-Oil behind
