How To Use Your Bio-Oil After Pregnancy

There are so many great uses for your Bio-Oil

Whether you love every moment of your nine-month journey or not, one thing’s for sure: we all want to minimize the stretch marks that come along with being pregnant. And so we spend the entire nine months slathering our bodies in anything we can find that says it will prevent and correct our stretch marks.

Most of us finally find the Holy Grail and never look back.

Of course, I’m talking about Bio-Oil—that iconic orange liquid that has been massaged onto hundreds of thousands of women’s stomachs during pregnancy. It is the #1 pharmacist- and doctor-recommended over-the-counter brand for scar and stretch marks in Canada. Bio-Oil’s unique formula helps to maximize your skin’s elasticity while locking in moisture and is actually clinically proven to improve the appearance of scars and stretch marks.

So, for nine months you religiously apply your Bio-Oil until your baby arrives, and then what? Maybe you keep up with your daily skin care regime for a while to help with any stretch marks or scarring you have post-birth. But once you are no longer worried about your baby bump stretch marks, what can you do with your bottle of Bio-Oil?

I am here to tell you that—when it comes to skin care—you are sitting on liquid gold, ladies. LIQUID GOLD!

You see, when oil meets skin, amazing things happen! Oils can hydrate; they can protect and purify; they can even help to balance your skin. And because oils are able to deliver concentrated ingredients, a little goes a long way to help keep your skin in tip-top condition.

My favourite way to use Bio-Oil is as a moisturizer—I use it on my face and body and love how light it is on my skin. It isn’t greasy and absorbs quickly, leaving my skin hydrated all day long. As an added bonus, it helps with uneven skin tone and works as an anti-aging serum for facial and neck skin.

A facial oil will also help prevent water loss, giving your face a plumper look and diminishing fine lines, while also effectively moisturizing you skin. Best of all, there is something luxurious about using oil as your facial moisturizer.

It also takes off makeup easier than any makeup remover I’ve used in the past and is a great alternative to lip balm when your lips are dry or cracked. You can use it on insect bites to relieve itchiness, to soften your cuticles, to soothe skin after shaving or you can even add it to a bath to literally soak in the moisturizing benefits.

There are so many ways to use Bio-Oil, it can replace a whole slew of products that are currently cluttering your bathroom counter.

Bio-Oil is non-comedogenic, non-acnegenic, hypo-allergenic and safe for sensitive skin, so it’s perfect for all skin types.

So, next time your lips are feeling a bit dry or your kid has a bug bite, grab your Bio-Oil and experience the versatility of Canada’s favourite specialist skincare oil. 

Bio-Oil is available across Canada in three convenient sizes:

  • 60ml ($12.99)
  • 125ml ($21.99)
  • 200ml ($29.99)
