Like if this guide is helpful
Nailing flawless, radiant skin from top to tip has always been beauty’s most hard-to-tick box. Which is why we spend mega bucks (think billions per year) on a truckload of different potions to help us get there. And why we are on a constant lookout for surefire shortcuts to a Miranda Kerr all-over-hot-mama glow, without a cabinet creaking with bottles.

Even though we know it better as the No. 1 selling stretch mark and scar remedy , Bio-Oil is really a do-it-all skin saviour to help us get gorg from head to toe .

And who better to steal the secrets of extracting the most out of this no-nonsense multi-tasker than celebrity hair & makeup artist and Bio-Oil fan, Andrea Claire? While the possibilities seem endless, here are our favourite uses of the little miracle worker:

The 9 Uses of Bio Oil

1. Multi-Tasking Facial Moisturiser: Yes, you can safely enjoy the goodness of this exceptional product on your face. Thanks to the patented PurCellin Oil, Bio-Oil sinks in deep within a split second to effectively moisturise without leaving an oily residue (always a mega plus in our humid weather!). Carrying along a treasure trove of nourishing botanical extracts and age-fighting vitamins A & E, it will be your trusty sidekick who fends off the ravages of time quietly while you go about conquering the challenges of life. On top of bolstering skin’s wrinkle-resistance, 93 percent of subjects in a clinical trial also noticed an improvement in their uneven skin tone and blotchiness in just 6 weeks.

2. Acne Scar Healer: Being non-comedogenic, Bio-Oil can be used as either as a spot treatment to lighten dark pimple marks or as a non-greasy moisturiser to keep combination skin balanced, thus preventing excessive dryness and irritation due to acne products.

3. Makeup Primer: Smoothing on a tiny amount before your foundation is all you need to imbue a delicious dewy glow sans oily streakiness. Alternatively, just dab it on your cheekbones for a pretty, highlighting sheen.

4. Cosmetic Transformer: Turn your powder or pigment eyeshadows to achieve a ‘wet eye look’ that’s all over the runways this Fall. Compared to the usual vaseline, the Bio-Oil makeup base is less prone to messy migration. Similarly, blend a itsy-bitsy amount to your blusher or foundation for a sheer wash of colour and tinted moisturiser to look perfectly primped on your day-off. The featherweight oil also makes blending on overly fast-drying cheek & lip stains a breeze.

4. After-Sun Soother: Besides acting as a protective layer over skin to hold in moisture, natural botanicals such as chamomile extract, calendula oil and rosemary oil further soothe and nurse scorched skin back to a healthy post-holiday glow.

5. Cuticle Protector: Massage the vitamin E-rich Bio-Oil into your cuticles and manicured nails to keep them healthy and strong.

6. Frizz Fighter: Smooth on the last bit of Bio-Oil onto dry hair ends as a hair serum, or finger comb through unruly tresses to tame flyaways and frizzy fros.

7. Massage Oil: Knead away the day’s tension and perfect your body skin simultaneously. The calming and lightly-scented lavender, calendula and rosemary oils keep you zen, while the skin-bettering Bio-Oil smooth away stretch marks, parched skin and post-bacne or insect-bite marks. Don’t forget those neglected elbows and knobbly knees.

8. Pre-Shave Skin Prep: Slather on this versatile beauty helper before shaving to soften skin and prevent nicks.
