You’re becoming a mommy? Well, congratulations! Pregnancy is an exciting part of a woman’s life as she embarks on a memorable journey towards motherhood, but that journey includes some emotional as well as physical changes. One of the most common concern of motherhood is stretch marks.Most women would have heard of them and seen them, but mums-to-be need not fret as specialist skincare product, Bio-Oil, can help you get through the journey as it is clinically proven to help improve the appearance of stretch marks.
Medically known as striae, stretch marks are caused by the breaking of elastic fibres under the surface of the skin, a result of one’s body growing faster than the skin can keep up with.
Appearances differ according to the different stages of pregnancy, becoming more pronounced as the belly continues to grow, along with other factors that may also have an affect such as skin type, age, family history and weight.
Whilst some mums today are proud with their “tiger stripes”, some also find it unsightly and because of that end up being self-conscious, which affects their level of confidence and self-esteem.
But there are various ways to prevent or manage stretch marks and this includes consuming a balanced diet and drinking lots of water. Regular exercise also helps too along with the use of a specially formulated topical treatment such as Bio-Oil.
Suitable even for sensitive skin, Bio-Oil is derived from a unique blend of plant extracts such as chamomile, lavender, rosemary and calendula oils; and vitamins A & E, as well as breakthrough ingredient, PurCellin Oil™, that lets skin absorb the goodness quickly, leaving it soft and supple minus the sticky or greasy feeling.
To reduce the forming of stretch marks, use Bio-Oil as early as the second trimester, or when the little baby bump starts to make an appearance.
Furthermore, a clinical study revealed that 100% of its subjects showed an improvement in the appearance of their stretch marks (both old and new) after applying Bio-Oil for eight weeks.
For best results, it is recommended that the product is massaged onto stretch mark prone areas; abdomen, breasts, thighs, hips, lower back and buttocks in circular motion two times a day for a minimum of three months.
Bio-Oil is now offering expecting mums a limited edition promotional pack that consists of two 60ml bottles of Bio-Oil and a free Thermos mug worth RM48 to ensure your skin and body are well hydrated to prevent pregnancy stretch marks.
Bio-Oil Pregnancy Essential Pack retails at RM69.90 and is now available in pharmacies nationwide, while stocks last.
