The Benefits of Bio-Oil for Scars, Blemishes and Stretch Marks.
If you are looking for a way to get rid of scars, blemishes or stretch marks then Bio-Oil might be right for you. Bio-Oil is a non-greasy oil that fades scars, blemishes and stretch marks when being used correctly. In some cases, it also makes them disappear completely.
Warning: Bio-Oil should not be used on open wounds, scars that haven’t healed yet or irritated skin. Besides this, you should always test how your skin reacts to Bio-Oil before using it. You can rub some Bio-Oil on the inside of your wrist and leave it there for 24 hours to see how your skin reacts to it. If you have a bad reaction you should not use Bio-Oil.
You should apply Bio-Oil twice a day. To get the best results you should apply it in the morning and in the evening.
After you’ve washed your face you should apply Bio-Oil. Bio-Oil gets absorbed quickly by any skin type. Which is a plus as it doesn’t leave your skin oily. Therefore, you can immediately apply a cream, gel or make up on your face after using Bio-Oil. Bio-Oil should be applied directly on the scars, blemishes or stretch marks that you want to disappear. You can apply Bio-Oil with a cotton swab or with your fingers. If you decided to use your fingers make sure that your fingers are clean! When using Bio-Oil make sure that you don’t use too much at a time. Using a lot of Bio-Oil doesn’t make it work better nor does it give you a faster result.
If you are using Bio-Oil on your body then it would be best to apply it with your fingers. Make sure that the area where you apply the Bio-Oil onto is clean and dry. After you’ve applied the Bio-Oil you can use body lotion, body oil or body butter as usual.
Scars, Blemishes and Stretch Marks
When using Bio-Oil, the correct way it can fade your scars. The scars will get lighter and lighter over time until it is not possible for them to become any lighter. How light your scars will get varies. It doesn’t only vary per person but also per scar that you have. You might use Bio-Oil on two scars on your body at the same time and one of them might get lighter than the other. One of the elements that play a part in this is how long you have the scar. If it’s a fresh scar than the chances of it becoming lighter is bigger than if you have the scar for years. This doesn’t mean that you should not use Bio-Oil on older scars. It just means that it might take a little longer and the results might not be as good as it would be on a fresh scar.
Bio-Oil works very well on blemishes. When using Bio-Oil on your blemishes you will notice that they start to fade in no time. And most of them even disappear completely.
Not only does Bio-Oil fade your stretch marks, but it also prevents new stretch marks from forming. Therefore, it would be best to immediately start using Bio-Oil when the first stretch marks appear. When you do this, you can prevent other stretch marks from forming. Which is better than using Bio-Oil on them after they appeared. When you’re pregnant you can also use Bio-Oil to make your stretch marks fade/disappear. And off course to prevent getting more stretch marks.
Warning: using Bio-Oil during your pregnancy is allowed from the second trimester on.
Whether it is a scar, blemish or stretch mark it will take time before it fades/disappears. Therefore, you have to be patient when using Bio-Oil. Besides being patient, you should also be consistent. If you aren’t consistent with the usage of Bio-Oil the results may be disappointing. Try using Bio-Oil for at least three months to see results.
You should realize that using Bio-Oil to lighten your scars, blemishes or stretch marks does not mean that it will completely wipe them away. There will be a point where it is not possible for your scar, blemish or stretch mark to get lighter as it will stop reacting to Bio-Oil after a while. Like mentioned before this differs for each scar, blemish and stretch mark and can happen at any given moment. This doesn’t mean that Bio-Oil can’t completely wipe away a scar, blemish or stretch mark as this is possible. There is just no guarantee that this will happen to all of your scars, blemishes and stretch marks.
