Clears Acne Scars
For someone who suffers from adult acne, this is my go-to product during winter to get rid of the remnants of my monsoon acne. Not only does it remove acne scars, but it also keeps my skin soft and supple when the temperature drops.
If you’re out of makeup remover, or your current one isn’t doing a good job, then give Bio-oil a try. Just a little bit of this oil can help dissolve waterproof and even sticky makeup and make the cleansing process so much easier.
Bio-oil is not only beneficial for your skin, but it also works wonders on hair. Those dealing with frizzy hair can tame their mane with this oil. It’s perfect for smoothing those pesky baby hairs or flyaways and it can even hydrate your split ends. Our Beauty Editor, Nidhi Kavle can personally attest to this as it has been her go-to hair product during the lockdown.
It’s 2020 and stretch marks are no longer a thing to be embarrassed about *it’s totally natural*, but if they are ruining your self-confidence, using this oil for a couple of weeks can help get rid of the lines. The blend of vitamins A and E, along with rosemary and chamomile nourishes the skin and helps fade away stretch marks, making you feel more confident in your own skin.
Bio-oil not only eliminates stretch marks, but it can also fade away scars. Once the wound heals, you can reduce its appearance by using this oil daily on the damaged area.
Cures Itchy Scalps
Since this oil is packed with natural soothing ingredients like supercharged botanicals, lavender and calendula, along with vitamins A and E, it is the perfect candidate to treat a scratchy scalp and reduce flakes and dandruff.
Yes, Bio-oil is even safe to use on the delicate skin around your eyes. If you are suffering from dark circles and puffy eyes due to lack of sleep just add a bit of this oil on a cotton pad and dab it under your eyes to soothe it.
Bio-oil has many beauty benefits but just like any product, do not expect overnight results. You need to use it religiously for a couple of weeks if you want to see visible change.
