Bio-oil: what is it, what is it for and how to use it
Bio-oil is a moisturizing gel rich in plant extracts and vitamins, effective against aging and skin dehydration, helps to mask burn marks and other scars, stretch marks, blemishes on the skin, and can be used on the face and any other part of the body.
This oil contains a great diversity of components in its formula, such as vitamin A and E, essential oils of calendula, lavender, rosmarinus and manzanilla, formulated so that they are easily absorbed by the skin, without exerting toxicity.
Bio-oil can be purchased at pharmacies, and is available in different sizes, in the form of oil or gel.
Bio-oil is a product rich in vitamins and plant extracts, which can be used daily to keep the skin hydrated and nourished, and prevent dehydration. In addition, it is also indicated to prevent and attenuate stretch marks, scars, skin blemishes and skin aging.
The scars result from the regeneration of a lesion in the skin, due to the excess of collagen production in this region. To attenuate its appearance, apply a few drops to the scar and massage with circular movements 2 times a day, at least for 3 months. This product must not be used on open herds.
2. Stretch marks
Stretch marks are visible lines, which result from sudden distension of the skin, which can appear in situations where the skin stretches a lot in a short period of time, such as in the case of embarazo, growth in adolescence or debt to a sudden increase in weight. Even though Bio-oil does not eliminate stretch marks, it can help to attenuate its appearance.
See other methods to prevent and alleviate stretch marks.
The spots can result from sun exposure or hormonal fluctuations, and therefore, Bio-oil is a great ally for embarazadas women, women who enter menopause or even in daily use, for any person who wants to maintain hydrated skin, especially after sun exposure.

4. Skin aging
Bio-oil contributes to improving the smoothness and elasticity of the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and preventing premature aging of the skin.
The way to use Bio-oil consists of applying an oil layer on the skin to be treated, massaging with circular movements 2 times a day, for at least 3 months. Bio-oil can be used in daily skin care, and must be applied before sunscreen.
Bio-oil is generally tolerated, although in some cases it can produce an allergic reaction in the skin, and in these cases it is recommended to wash the skin with water and suspend the use of the product.
Bio-oil is contraindicated in the case of skin with heridas or with irritation and in people with hypersensitivity to the components of the formula.
