Oil take it

Wednesday, 2nd September, 2020 2:32pm

Many associate skincare with vanity, but the skin is the body’s largest organ and our primary form of protection.

Keeping our skin healthy and hydrated should be considered an essential part of caring for our overall health, alongside a varied diet, fresh air and a form of movement we enjoy. Our skin is made up of multiple layers with the epidermis and the naturally occurring oil it produces, creating a waterproof, protective barrier against water loss, bacteria and the elements. This layer and moisture are easily worn away and cannot be replaced topically with water-based moisturisers, this is usually the main cause of dehydrated flaky skin. Sun, sea and hiking expose our skin to elements that strip away the protective oils so a staycation can leave our bodies in need of support to restore them to optimum health.

Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel and Skincare Oil supplement the skins natural oils, protecting and nourishing it. Both products harness the potent moisturising qualities of oil but they were created for use on separate skin conditions. The Skincare Oil is formulated to reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks while Dry Skin Gel treats and provides relief from dry skin, especially conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.

Available in pharmacies, Tesco and independent retailers.
