The summer holidays have arrived – our favourite time of the year, yay!

If you’re looking to put your mind at ease so you can vacation without stressing over possible damage to your skin, hair and nails, Bio-Oil is the product to do just that and more – and with it’s new compact travel size, it’s easy to carry around too!

This all-in-one specialist skin-care remedy is suitable for all skin types and is highly effective in combating and preventing various skin conditions. Here are 8 reasons why you should have Bio-Oil in your travel bag this summer.

Bio Oil Benefits

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 sun burnt 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 moisturiser to keep skin hydrated, soft and supple while highlighting your summer glow.

Bio Oil 25ml retails for R39.99. Available at select retail outlets and pharmacies nationwide.

4. Uneven skin tone

High in antioxidants and vitamins A 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 moisturise sun-dulled locks.

6. Nails 

When cuticles are exposed to excessive sun, chlorine or salty water, they become dry, chapped and damaged. Massage vitamin E-rich Bio-Oil into 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 major surgical scars to minor cuts, bites and grazes – so you can wear your skin-bearing summer wardrobe with confidence. Massage Bio-Oil into the scar twice a day, for a minimum of three months to soften and improve the appearance of the scar.
